I get it!
Too often, “getting it done” overrides making it fun.
Way too often, you’re more tired than inspired.
You had a vision, but it somehow got lost in facing "reality."
You wanted to do it differently this time, but…
And the clock is ticking on your life!
But it doesn’t have to be this way!
What if you could do it the way you intended?
What if everyone felt excited and proud and fully invested?
What if your vision and energy were palpable – and contagious?
What if you knew exactly where to start and what to do next?
What if you were truly aligned with you… in spirit… in-spired.
Inspired Personal Leadership...
...is a different way of thinking, seeing and leading. It changes what comes next by building on what is strong, right and powerful. Clarity, courage and inspired action no longer feel “out there;” they are right here, right now, in this moment. And it sounds like joy, enthusiasm, excitement, commitment and community. (Can you hear it?)
By the time you complete the workshop…
You’ll understand that leading is not about getting all the people and circumstances in perfect alignment, but rather about focusing on a few critical actions designed to fully engage others - and build momentum in the direction of your vision.
Know what matters most
Focus on strengths & follow the energy
You'll understand that strengths create energy. Maximize that energy, while minimizing and managing weakness and you've mastered the art of tilting the world in favor of your vision.
You’ll know how to nurture a team of people who recognize when they are in their “lizard brain,” and know how to shift to the “artist brain” and get things done!
Engage the artist in everyone!
Articulate an irresistible WHY and a compelling vision
You’ll “get it” that nothing inspired happens without a compelling “why” and a vision that sees beyond the horizon. You’ll learn to create a “why” that is both infectious and energizing.”
You’ll master the art of creating a buffer between the nonsense and the work, and you’ll know how to equip and empower your team to navigate this paradoxical space.
Clear the clutter so others can do their best work

Chris Trout Founder, Lead Differently and the Center for Inspired Leaders
You care abouthow you lead - and how you live. They are one-in-the-same. A creator and leader of dozens of organizations, programs and initiatives over the years, I’ve been in that place of self-doubt, wondering whether intention, however passionate, could ever become reality. It did, over and over - and it can for you.
So, who am I?I’m a lover of great jazz and transformative ideas, both of which are mirrored in my passion for seeing hidden strengths, asking the unexpected question, and engaging in that delicious improvisation that leads to inspired, "gut level" change.
As a speaker, writer and advisor, I have inspired diverse audiences from South Central Los Angeles to rural Canada, and readers from New Zealand to South Africa. Along the way, I’ve been privileged to create model programs for high-risk youth; travel coast-to-coast sharing the message of resilience; coach individuals, organizations and businesses through transformative change; and author more than 400 essays, two books, several online courses, and a 10-hour audio series on the art of loving life.
The insights and strategies I share with you were learned from you, through decades of in-the-trenches, hands-on work helping people and organizations tap their unique and often unrecognized brilliance, shift theirs mindset, and align with what they once only imagined.
I continue to do the work I love - with a family that I love - from the beautiful southern coast of Maine.
