Colorado Thought Leaders forum

Better leaders. Better companies. Better lives.


Colorado Thought Leaders Forum (CTLF) is a business community of passionate CEOs, executives, entrepreneurs, and thought leaders committed to changing the traditional approach to business & leadership. 

Our Work

CTLF is uniquely equipped to help leaders:

  • Expand your thinking
  • Challenge convention
  • Grow as a person
  • Experience authentic connection with others

We do this through member gatherings, short-term and ongoing programs, and events that inspire thought leadership.

Our Mission

Our aim is to help you unleash your own potential through our work, so that you can take it with you into your life, your company, and our community to unleash the potential of others.

By developing HEART-Level Leaders, we help leaders create authentic, healthy, prosperous cultures. 

Our Genius

Every organization has a unique genius—something they do better than anyone else.

Ours is creating the conditions for authenticity, deep connection, and growth.

Because we move beyond tips, tools and techniques, there is real transformation.
