Lifework Leadership | Atlanta
The Atlanta metro area is home to millions of people who shape our nation through business, media, and the arts and entertainment. We are building a generation of transformed business leaders who cross vocational, denominational, and racial lines to transform our homes, companies, churches, and ultimately our city. We welcome you to experience our program as we fulfill the vision of bringing transformation to our region.
Lifework Leadership Atlanta is taking time to reflect. This is a pattern we model through our Lifework retreats, our journaling and the pattern we see in the life of Jesus as he often "stepped back" to retreat and reflect. As a result, this fall instead of launching a new class we are pausing to reflect with the expectation of moving forward in Q1 of 2017.  
The primary purpose for reflection is to intentionally shape a ministry model that will be financially sustainable for years to come.  We have not discovered that model yet in Atlanta and it deserves and demands our best efforts. We know that Lifework's curriculum and its community of leaders could be great contributions to the vitality of our city.

Louis Upkins Relationship message was powerful and centered around the depth of personal relationship with God, family and business. J.T. Williams, President of Killearn for 51 years and our Case Study shared insights into relationships for building business. Jim Karwisch, from DuMore Imrpove led our class in clarifying and amplifying the messages from our speakers.
