Terry works with individuals, businesses, and leaders who are looking for greater focus and clarity with their most important issues: mission, core beliefs, how to create a winning culture, and how to turn potential into performance.

He believes there is greatness in every person. When they discover, understand, and leverage their greatness they become their best self, make their greatest contribution, and live a life of significance, personally and professionally.

Terry is living his dream: To inspire and motivate people to action and to help them WIN!

His first book Leading Is Art will transform your understanding of what it means to lead— drawing out the greatness in your team might be messy at times, but that’s why Leading is Art.

As a leadership artist, speaker, trainer, coach, and now author, Terry has utilized every opportunity he’s had from over twenty years of ministry, being the CEO of a real estate company, and even training for Ironman to launch his message; “YOU contain greatness, YOU can draw it out of those around you, and YOU can live the life you’ve always wanted.
