Moving People




Life Coaching

We believe in people.  We believe that each individual has a purpose and a calling. We believe that each person desires to reach their fullest potential and we thrive in helping people move forward, gain traction and become the best version of themselves. Our individualized approach and spiritually oriented coaching meets people where they are and moves them forward to where they want to go.


We believe in the art and power of communicating. We deliver a message that is relevant, authentic, and powerful.  We seek to serve each event and organization by understanding our audience and delivering the best message for those present. Our hope is that each person will be motivated to move forward personally, spiritually, and professionally. Prepare to be inspired, moved, and ready to bring positive change to your relationships and organizations.


We believe in leaders. We believe in the power of gathering great leaders and the impact this has on a whole community. We believe that great leaders make great families, teams, organizations & communities. We believe that every leader wants to make an impact and we thrive in helping leaders move forward. Our one day leadership seminars serve as a powerful springboard for leaders to move forward, to connect with other leaders, to gain momentum and become the leader they were meant to be.

Custom/Executive Retreats

Lead Professionals Group has over 50 years of combined experience facilitating custom retreats for organizations and leaders across the country. Each retreat is unique to the specific organizational needs and developmental goals for those in attendance. Executive/Custom Retreats engage attendees on an individual level and an organizational level by providing focused reflection, honest communication, and spiritual guidance related to work morale, positive interaction, family & work-life balance, and the healthiest organizational production. Lead Professionals Group understands the pace of business, the demands of leadership, and the responsibilities that are intrinsic to success. It is our goal, with the tool of Executive/Custom Retreats, to provide a unique and distinct experience that intentionally carves out time from the hustle of everyday work, where undistracted attention can be given to personal, cultural, spiritual, and organizational goals, and where value systems can be reset moving forward. This is a time for recollection and identification of what is most meaningful.
