LeadTransformed Groups

Our mission is to provide leadership instruction through events and roundtable discussion groups to support individuals in fulfilling the purpose they were created for. The primary way we facilitate this is through our LeadTransformed groups.

This ten week mastermind process, from the Heartland Leadership Initiative, helps leaders of all ages review common sense leadership principles and take consistent action steps to make them common practice.


Weekly roundtables: A gathering of 4-8 like-minded individuals, guided by a facilitator.

What other leaders are saying about LeadTransformed

Penny Firkus

Team Schierl Companies

I have been involved with Lead Transformed for the past 4 years. It has offered me a unique insight to Leadership getting me to think about principles/ideas that I otherwise would not. I have grown both professionally and personally by being present in Lead Transformed.

Nathan Schroeder

Lead Pastor, Highland Church

Lead Transformed has been foundational to much of the growth I have experienced in the past several years.Having made a transition in my role at work a few years ago, I have faced many new experiences. Many of which are beyond my skill set or comfort zone. Lead Transformed has given me the tools to think in new ways and overcome the obstacles I saw in front of me.

Rebecca Gaboda


What I didn't expect from LeadTransformed was the personal growth I obtained. Through this journey I've grown professionally and personally while making wonderful and lasting connections. I now have the resources to continue to practice healthy living and personal awareness on what is truly important to me so I can be the best self I can be!
