An over-achiever early & often, I started my career with Chet at CompuServe in 1982 and led 15 years in Corporate America.
Husband since ’83 to Connie, and father to Chuck & Carly, I was eternally transformed by God’s comfort & grace after the sudden loss of our first-born 3 yr old son, Jack.
The next 10 years as a full-time pastor made me a wiser GuRue.
Chet and I re-united in 2003 to apply the emerging BUILT TO LEAD framework to the church and leaders of faith, where I fell in love with this work.
I joined BTL full-time in 2008, still in the business of faith helping CEOs and ministry leaders alike become stronger believers and master connectors with their teams.
My purpose is helping leaders & teams relate to WHY they live & work, WHO they are, and HOW to fully engage with clarity, depth and alignment in work & life, discovering and living out their OPUS.
I believe there are two extreme ways to live & work — one is “A-LONE” and the other is “ALL-ONE” — with one huge ‘L of a difference. The extra “L” is the L-OVE of why you do what you do, and who you do it with in work & life. It’s the heart of our tagline, “Together We Transform”.
