Our Clients

"I am inspired to let you know how much First Command has changed and continues to change since the introduction of Higher Ground Leadership® into our company. I am filled with gratitude that our leaders elected to follow the Higher Ground Leadership® path and that I am part of it. My retreat was held in January this year and still my enthusiasm remains high 9 months later. Serving others is my new way of life. Higher Ground Leadership® has changed my life and I cannot tell you in how many ways. Thank you for your words of love and inspiration. Thank you for who you are and for helping us become who we are, servant leader."

Doug Petersen, Senior Manager, Financial Planning Systems, First Command Financial Services, Inc.

"Lance is one of the most inspirational people I have met. He helped awaken in our organization a set of principles of Leadership that had been pushed to the background by years of focusing on the wrong things. He has been a mentor to me. Just knowing him helped me move in directions I never thought possible in the business world."

Dr. Ed Boudreau, Consultant, BMGI
