WHAT IS ‘HALFTIME’?

‘Halftime’ is a time-out. It’s a time to pause, reflect on what you’ve accomplished, who you’ve become, and what will matter most to you in the next season of life. It’s an opportunity to make a course correction or commit to stay the course so that you are equipped to direct your time and resources purposefully.

MYTH REALITY
‘Halftime’ is triggered by a midlife crisis. ‘Halftime’ is triggered by a mid-life transition – and there’s a difference! Whether it be in your career or personally, you’re in ‘halftime’ when you face a transition that leaves you asking, “what’s next?”
You must be over the age of 60 and retired from your career to be in ‘halftime’.  ‘Halftime’ is not determined by age, but rather by stage. Our clients range from mid-30s to mid-70s and cross all industries, ethnicities, and genders.
You must sell all your belongings and move across the globe in order to pursue true significance. Our clients pursue significance in a variety of ways, each unique to their individual experiences, passions, and skills. In fact, the majority of our clients determine there are minor course corrections they can make to their existing careers and ventures in order to experience more joy, impact, and balance!

This concept of ‘halftime’ was born out of the best-selling book, Halftime: Moving from Success to Significance, written by Bob Buford in 1994. Following the popularity and resonance of his book, Bob founded the Halftime Institute in order to provide a hands-on process and community for growth, support, and learning for people walking through their own season of ‘halftime’. Since then, the Institute has expanded to include world-class Coaches, Staff, and Resources – equipping leaders all over the globe.

WE BELIEVE

  • God calls leaders to do something significant with their time, talent, and treasure, and we have been called to serve these people. 
  • God created every person for a purpose. The Halftime Institute provides products and services to help our clients discover their purpose and live a life of significance. Working in association with the Halftime Institute is not so much a job, but a calling. For over two decades, we’ve continually improved how we inspire, educate, and mobilize leaders to get clear on their life purpose and engage in it meaningfully – in their work, their family, and their community.
  • Holistic and sustainable life transformation is not just for the individual, but for the entire family. Our solutions include the head and the heart. We facilitate a journey that is not only strategic but also emotional and spiritual. We believe in helping leaders get crystal clear on who they are at their core so that they can effectively serve in what they will do.

At our core, we are a Christian organization, helping people pursue their Ephesians 2:10 calling:

For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”
