Become a better leader

The Fellows Program is for individuals seeking to become better leaders for their teams, organizations, and communities.


The Fellows Program is designed to help professionals take a more holistic view of the purpose of their leadership, sharpen their emotional intelligence, and develop the skills needed to lead. In order for individuals to get the most out of the program, you must be willing to self-reflect, grow, and change.

Our leadership perspective is a systems-based approach grounded in three basic precepts that set the foundation for cultivating emotionally healthy and courageous leaders.

the three precepts

Leadership and Followership

Leadership and followership are defined by character and are relational in nature.



Character is shaped by a timeless and transcendent set of core virtues.


Courageous Leadership

Selfless courage and service to others is not a style of leadership, but learned behavior.

The five virtues that will transform your leadership

These timeless and transcendent virtues are supported through emotional intelligence and shape everything we do.



Seeking and evaluating facts to distinguish and stand up for what is fundamentally right



Not a feeling, but actions of service and generosity to another, even when it requires one to be self-sacrificing.



A continuous pursuit of learning and improving, while growing in the virtues of Love, Integrity, Truth, and Relationship.



Alignment between family, personal, and professional lives, and consistently doing the right thing even when no one is watching.



Cultivating positive connections among individuals, groups, and communities to benefit everyone involved.
