We believe that each and every person was born with a one-of-a-kind, authentic Masterpiece inside of them. We already have everything we need inside of us to experience transformation right now.
We believe healthy engagement with the individuals in our lives is a primary action for transformation in our lives. We do not need to change friends, addresses or jobs to experience transformation.
We believe that transformation comes from fully embracing the tensions in our lives, not from eliminating them. We need to create our personalized dynamic balance or transformational rhythms in the tensions of our lives.
Our Transformational Rhythms Program has been researched, developed and experienced over the last 35 years and built on a foundation leveraging many more decades of history and wisdom. Our program can be experienced as we developed it or it can be customized as derivative content for your particular application.
Our program has six books (courses): platform, self-leadership, personal relationships, team building, entrepreneurship/intrapreneurship and community building. Mix and match books (courses) according to your needs. Each book (course) supports different levels of engagement depth / time investment.
We offer professionally validated psychometric assessments that measure our current points of dynamic balance, or transformational rhythm, in the tensions between each pair of synergistic Life Skills and Influential Leadership Skills. These assessments have free and paid versions.
Customize our content to align with your mission, vision, values, goals and language. Work with us to create a derivative book (course) or do the customization yourself. We offer simple coaching and writing services on an hourly basis and simple license agreements for custom derivatives of our books (courses).
Our Transformation Rhythms Program addresses the six different contexts of our lives:
our common platform, ourselves, the groups and teams we hangout with,
the organizations we work and serve in and the communities we live and interact in.
The following six sections describe each one of the six areas of study (books/courses) of the
Transformational Rhythms Program in greater detail:
Leadership is influence. Nothing more. Nothing less.
We all have the capacity for tremendous influence in every single one of our relationships - whether we realize it or not.
We need to be the best steward of every opportunity for influence (leadership) in every relationship we have.
The whole is GREATER-THAN the sum of its parts. Successful Team Building requires us to BOTH
Unleash the Masterpiece in each team member AND Unleash the GREATER-THAN of the whole team,
regardless of our particular role or position within the team.
We need to see ourselves as primary stakeholders in any organization we are a part of, regardless of our role or position within it.
We need to cultivate an organizational culture of wholeness, consistency, unity, trust and harmony with the direct, internal and external stakeholders,
whether we are the CEO, a part-time member of custodial staff, or anything in between.
Community Building requires uniting diverse individuals, relationships, groups and organizations in common causes and collective identities.
Unity in diversity requires TRUST. Trust is built through COMMUNITAS.
The Transformational Rhythms Program has produced unprecedented, sustained life change in prisoners incarcerated in the Illinois Department of Corrections. Since 2016, more than 2,000 individual prisoners have taken courses in the program, and most prisoners have taken multiple courses, as both participants and assistants. We currently serve more than 500 prisoners per week in Illinois State Prisons.
We desired to test out the Transformational Rhythms Program in one of the most difficult and demanding environments we could find. The results of the last five years have created the confidence and the demand to extend the program beyond prisons to young adults, marriages, parenting, professionals, nonprofits and anyone desiring meaningful, sustainable transformation in their lives.
We have marketplace, faith-based, and faith-neutral versions of our program available, in print, PDF, and digital-online LEARN-APPLY-ENGAGE formats.
