What does it mean to be a HEART-level leader?

We believe that HEART-level leaders are the embodiment of key attributes at the intersection of creating vision and holding space for others. These leaders commit to generous intentional service to others. They create bold strategic pursuits that strengthen their community and are innovators of ideas that bring change. HEART-level leaders are  authentic and vulnerable in their leadership and participate in the continuous pursuit of personal growth and humility.

The Five Values at the Heart of all we do


When we are humble, we move beyond our own egos and approach others with a sense of true humanity. Our self-awareness enables us to continually grow.


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


For real. It’s not just a common phrase, it’s how we live. Authenticity becomes the baseline for how we show up and interact with others.


We create abundant and resilient outcomes by designing healthly roles for ourselves and others. Health and well-being are standards for how we achieve success.


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