Becoming a Pathfinder

"Creating a More Inspired World"

Higher Ground Leadership® Pathfinders are a learning community of inspired leaders who wish to help create a better and more inspiring world. Our Community is a sanctuary for learning, practicing, networking, collaborating, and awakening in a Community of kindred spirits.


Over the last few years I am sure you have spoken with many people who are experiencing a growing loss of personal inspiration. Some have even lost their inspiration altogether, replacing it with an unhealthy sense of helplessness. Pandemics, corporate incompetence and malfeasance, recessions, terrorism, wars, mass shootings, polarized politics, inflation, job loss, declining mental health, climate change, opioid and drug crises, corruption, fake news, and more, have drained inspiration from people’s lives. And it has obscured people’s capacity to see the goodness in life and each other.

But we do not need to feel this way. We may not be able to rearrange the world exactly as we would like it to be, but we can regain our lost inspiration, even in the face of so much that seems broken. Our community is the place where we inspire each other, and share our wisdom and experience by helping individuals and organizations do the same.


Pathfinders are a group of coaches, consultants, leaders, therapists, pastors, entrepreneurs and executives who are the founders and champions of a new movement “To Create an Inspired World”.  We are a community focused on contributing our experience and unique gifts, combined with the philosophy of Higher Ground Leadership®, to make a difference in the lives of others and the organizations in which they work. Following the completion of Masterclasses and a Practicum, Pathfinders bring Higher Ground Leadership®  to their teaching, coaching and leadership roles. Collaboration, community, networking, sharing, learning, personal growth and teaching are all features of the Pathfinder community.

We also collaborate on client assignments and generate sales opportunities wherever possible.

Perhaps you have wondered, “What would it be like to reclaim our lost inspiration, even in the face of so much global disarray, and be free from disillusionment, despair, withdrawal and cynicism?” What could each of us do to find this kind of inner peace and inspiration? 

The Higher Ground Community is a sanctuary for you as a Pathfinder to learn, practice, network, collaborate, and awaken in a community of kindred spirits. We will look deeply into the sources of inspiration, how we nurture our spirits and change the world.

I look forward to travelling with you on this path and making a positive difference in the world.
