SHINE – A Workshop to Move Leaders to Their Next Level

A faith-based workshop for marketplace leaders to equip them to SHINE with greater impact in their workplace, to better engage their workforce, and to move themselves to their next level.


Someone wisely noted, “When a leader gets better, everything gets better.” Participating in a SHINE workshop will make you better and move you to your next level in your leadership journey. It is practical, biblical, applicable, and affordable. It is even more impactful when three or more from the same organization share the experience.


  • Gain valuable insight into why work matters.
  • Enjoy personal and professional development through assessments, group interaction, and helpful content.
  • Experience team development and enhancement.
  • Expect life-changing impact on your personal, family, and work life.


The workshop focuses on five guiding principles:

 Serve Others
Honor God
 Improve Continually
Navigate by Values
Excel in Relationships

The workshop is usually held in three sessions of four hours each with pre-session assignments. The hours and format are flexible to best meet your needs.

We look forward to helping you SHINE brighter!
