Why Ultimate Leadership is so effective

All of us can grow in the kind of character needed to bring about fruitful relationships, achievement of purpose, mission, and goals. The Bible and proven scientific research assert that growth occurs when new information is combined with new experience. Ultimate Leadership combines dynamic teaching with small group experiences led by highly-trained professionals. Our facilitators help you personalize the information on a deeper level, so it relates to your own life and leadership. You will come away with practical skills and new insights that will help you attain relational and professional success.

Objectives of the Week

The Ultimate is structured to help leaders grow in character, competency, capacity, and confidence. It will help you to:

  • go past information based learning and experience real transformation
  • gain practical tools applicable to all areas of your personal and professional life
  • gain exposure to other leaders and highly qualified teachers
  • face and repair personal issues affecting your work and personal life
  • learn and internalize a model of growth that is rooted in biblical theology
  • formulate a plan for continued personal and professional growth

Why do Leaders Need this Type of Experience?

    1. Professional Issues: You will explore your particular blend of talents, abilities and past experiences in order to achieve professional effectiveness and success.
    2. Personal Issues: You will identify unresolved personal issues that could result in disillusionment, burnout, or loss of vision and effectiveness.
    3. Interpersonal Issues: You will discover how to confront problems that interfere with your ability to relate effectively with others.
    4. Integration of life, leadership, and beliefs: You will learn an integrated approach to leadership that ties together who you are, what you know, and how you lead. Growth in one area of life affects all others.

What to Expect:

Ultimate Leadership is a workshop designed to help you break away from distractions and well-established routines that hinder your spiritual and personal growth. Our hope is that you would have time to be still and listen to the Lord. For this reason, there will be no cell phone calls during sessions. We require confidentiality. You will be required to sign a confidentiality agreement before you arrive. This is important for creating an environment of trust and safety.

Teaching Sessions:

Most teaching sessions are taught by either Dr. Henry Cloud or Dr. John Townsend. On occasion there may be one or two presentations by other qualified Cloud-Townsend presenters.

Process Groups:

Ultimate Leadership specializes in “process groups” which are small group experiences led by highly trained professional facilitators. These facilitators guide the team sessions; therefore the training and structure may change at any time based on the specific needs and goals of the group. These process groups are designed to:

  • Teach a dynamic new approach to overcoming roadblocks to success
  • Establish an environment of personal growth for every participant
  • Create a safe setting for self-expression
  • Encourage honesty within the group, providing an atmosphere of grace and truth


There may be occasional variations in the schedule, but you can expect to start each day with breakfast at 7:00 a.m. There are normally two teaching sessions and two or three process groups each day. After dinner, your evenings are free. We encourage you to use that time to reflect on what you have been learning during the day. Beyond that, expect to see God and His Body do an amazing work in you!

“It’s difficult to describe, but before Ultimate Leadership I felt like my career was at an all time high yet in my spirit I felt like I was walking in a desert. It was tearing me apart and I was running on empty. Then I heard about Ultimate Leadership. I really didn’t want to fly 6,000 miles round trip for what I thought would be another “love, love, joy, joy – God understands you” experience. WOW, was I wrong! My decision to attend UL was the best decision I have ever made in my life. Why? Well, at age 53, I found that life without boundaries just isn’t life! Life without safe people around you is like navigating a minefield! Life without truth really is a lie! In my lifetime, I have invested in a lot of people and programs. It was now time to invest in me! If you honestly want to live the life God has called you to, then Ultimate Leadership will be worth your personal investment in YOU.
