“I’m a big fan of the philosophy of ‘HEART-Level Leadership’ and appreciate the bi-weekly reminders of the importance of a give-first mindset.”

“Our success of being recognized as a top workplace in the Denver community has been a direct result of the cultural influence CTLF has had on me. The idea of HEART-Level leadership can be infectious if you have the courage and commitment generated by the community of CTLF.”

Five values at the HEART of all we do.

Humble

When we are humble, we move beyond our own egos and approach others with a sense of true humanity. We let humility be our guide.

Engaged

We deeply engage our peers, teams, and employees with intention, approaching each person as an individual—listening, understanding, connecting.

Authentic

For real. It’s not just a common phrase, it’s how we live. Authenticity infuses our passion with honesty, vulnerability, and believability.

Regenerative

We create abundant and resilient outcomes by designing healthy roles for ourselves and others.

Togetherness

We are all part of a community and we rely on each other. Business and life work better when we invest in relationships.
