We want to help you become all you are meant to be.

We want to help you grow so you know who you are, who you are meant to become, and help you handle more than you thought was possible! What you have done in the past has gotten you this far—and we believe you have more potential to go even further.

We teach the principles of leadership through better relationships. Leadership is more than simply a position. Leadership is influence.

Personal Coaching

Coaching is an ongoing conversation where we provide encouragement, guidance, and honest feedback. We fully expect you to grow by attaining your goals! Some of the most successful people have experienced tremendous benefits from coaching. Your results may include increased productivity, higher employee retention, and the development of a more effective team.

Our responsibility is to provide content, insight, tools, wisdom, framework, ideas, and feedback. Your responsibility is to move from awareness to action and accountability.

Coaching can occur face to face, by phone, or by video chat (Skype, etc.) Each session is one-hour long. We recommend a minimum of six sessions.

Mastermind Groups

A mastermind group is an in-depth study of a specific book that will give you the opportunity to join forces and mastermind with a unique group of like-minded individuals who are focused on taking results in every area of their lives to a new level. Having the support and ideas from other focused and driven people allows us to see things differently and to get a new perspective on goals and action plans.

If you'd like to talk about putting together a group of your own and having us facilitate it, please contact us. It's best to keep these groups small; four to eight people is ideal. Mastermind groups can be held in person or online. Let us know if you have a specific book in mind or choose from those offered on our events page. When you bring five colleagues to a class, your individual fee is waived.

Each mastermind group meets weekly for one hour for six to ten weeks, depending on the book. Cost is $99 and does not include the book in most cases.

Ministry Coaching

We provide resources to pastors, parishoners, and churches so congregations can develop a focused ministry plan, based on their strengths and passions, that shares the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

If you don't know where you are going, chances are you won't get there. Planning is essential in redevelopment of congregations. As the dynamics of redevelopment unfold, a series of ministry plans will emerge. Components of the plan might include changes in worship, education, programs and structure. If these are to occur, an overall ministry plan ought to be developed."

LH Quests

An LH Quest is a look at the life, mission, and ministry of a congregation. The purpose of the quest is to help the governing body of the church, the pastor, and the congregation reflect on the church's strengths, find direction, and discern its future. This is not a "canned" program to be imposed upon a congregation with a predetermined outcome, set agenda, or timetable.

The goal of the LH Quest is to develop a plan with goals and objectives to be reached in a given time period that will guide the church's life and produce a spiritual dividend.

This is a nondenominational program, applicable to all church sizes. It can be useful for congregations in the midst of change.

Workshops

We offer workshops on spirituality, hospitality, and leadership that address specific topics to help your church grow.

Wow. Thank you. Today's event [Live2Lead] was a generous, inspiring, and practical gift. It got my wheels turning, and I will be reading and rereading my notes, working on and brainstorming ways to implement such valuable wisdom in both my personal and professional life. (Beginning with asking questions instead of barking orders tonight as I put the kids to bed.) The service-based motivation that propels you and Bill to work in this edifying program is apparent. The value of the scholarship you so generously extended to me reached far beyond the actual price of the ticket to attend. Many, many thanks to you and Brian and the John Maxwell team.

I have found that since I have begun taking part in the mastermind discussions with Brian, I have been more attuned to the nuances in my communications with others. Although in theory the main points of the two books we have read so far make logical sense, in practice it is easy to forget and fall into old communication habits that can negatively affect relationships. Reading and discussing 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership and How to Win Friends and Influence People, has helped keep basic communication principles at the forefront of my mind, which I feel has improved relationships both at work and at home.

Last night while I was getting training to help with the rock climbing and COPE course at the Boy Scouts office, we were doing some group challenges. A couple of the challenges were how to do accomplish physical goals that the whole group must do. My normal way of doing these kind of things is to just start doing it and hope others follow me, not really telling anyone what’s going on or even really letting others help. Since the last book study and this current one, I stood back and helped the others figure it out, I tried to point others in the right direction and take other people’s thoughts and feeling into consideration before just doing something. It turned out great. Our group worked very well together, and it was a fun time.

What I have gained from How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie is theoretical knowledge with plenty of examples, and now I must apply this knowledge on a daily basis. The nice thing about these principles is that you do not necessarily have to apply them at a workplace, but instead they can be applied anywhere, anytime. I believe that these laws in theory are universally applicable to any situation. A word of advice, though, is not to get discouraged, if for whatever reason you find it hard to apply these principles in real life. The principles may be universally applicable, but people and situations are not.

The Board of Directors for Foster CARE Closet recently partnered with Leadership Harbor to provide one-on-one coaching for our executive director and development training for our staff statewide. We look forward to the growth this will provide our team and benefit to those we serve.

The Co-Op 513 benefited greatly from having Brian and Kris work with our leadership team. With their guidance, we were able to solidify our goals and action steps attached to those goals. Their leadership provided us the push we needed to really focus in on our mission and purpose.
— Chris
Having worked in ministry for almost two decades, it often pains me to sit down to a coaching session with Kris. Only because I know she will ask the same questions I would ask those in my ministry. At the end of the day, it’s the questions that need to be asked to help me grow as a leader, and an individual. Kris’s personality provides a fun and laid-back environment to talk about life, leadership, and the future. Every great leader needs a coach like Kris (or Brian).
