More than a method. It’s a movement.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
~ Margaret Mead

Our Vision

Make no mistake. We’re on a mission here. We are redefining what modern leadership and business culture looks like today and well into the future. We believe thriving has everything to do with the quality of our leadership, the way we design our roles, and the people we surround ourselves with.

By developing HEART-Level leaders—people who are humble, engaged, authentic, regenerative, and bound by spirit of togetherness—we help leaders create authentic, healthy, prosperous cultures for the 21st century.

Our Story

In 2009, the world was experiencing a global economic downturn and businesses everywhere were struggling just to survive. In the face of this great challenge, CTLF formulated a bold response and, in doing so, created something special—a community that prioritizes genuine connection and authentic relationships as a powerful driver of personal and professional growth.

HEART-Level values are at the core of every CTLF program and event. This deliberate focus on knowing and serving others creates an authentic culture perfect for expanding our capacity to lead well in business and in life.

  • We design our leadership to thrive.
  • We succeed not at the expense of people, but with people and for people.
  • We inspire optimism.

When we do this, we elevate the future of Colorado business for good.

Persuasion is the act of replacing someone’s world view with something better.”

~ Chris Anderson, Owner, TED

As we challenge and support one another, we move from success to significance in our personal and professional lives. We are constantly thinking about how we can serve our community members — whether they need a marketplace resource, support for a challenge, or a relationship. This approach has strengthened the loyalty of our entire ecosystem. We firmly believe CEOs who join CTLF are going to have success and positive outcomes. When they do, they can go anywhere or they can stay invested in the Colorado community using their expertise and resources to perpetuate their success in other Colorado CEOs. That’s what we want to foster.

Our Community

CTLF is your circle of peers, your place to plug in and get inspired. We provide leadership development programs, inspiring keynotes, sophisticated professional networking groups, and opportunities to connect with many of Colorado’s best and brightest business leaders. Our aim is to help you become the best leader you can be, both personally and professionally. By applying HEART-Level leadership values at work, at home, and throughout our communities, we believe we can make the world a much better place—one person, one business, one community at a time.
