Bob Buford’s Values Project – Part 1

To my thinking, The New Philanthropy springs directly from a set of 10 values that came to me, informally, through my mentor Peter Drucker. I mean to say this wisdom came not in business conferences or management lectures but over dinners and in elevators and, as they translated into Texan (and into an even 10 points) they shot deep roots into my life and work. I'd like to make sure you have them, too, and that you understand how they operate. Ultimately, my hope is that you would articulate

This is My Halftime Story: Dawn Atwood

By Keith Butterfield  “…You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart…” Jeremiah 29:11-14 For Dawn Atwood, seeking has never been a challenge.  “I’ve always been a seeker,” she says.  But finding God was entirely another matter – in fact, it was a nearly 20-year process. The sales director for Jay Franco and Sons, a licensee of Disney products, looks back and marvels at the multitude of times she now knows – but didn’t at the time – that He was fully present

This is My Halftime Story: Paul Roney

By Keith Butterfield A succinctly crafted headline for Paul Roney’s life might be:  “Remarkable, Rewarding and Not Surprising.”  Paul himself probably would put it humbly that way. But -- as headlines usually do – it fails to tell the story completely, because Paul’s life more than “lives up” to those descriptors.  Consider: He has gone from being a college student very undecided about his life path in the late 1970’s – including whether to marry or to pursue a single life of service to the Catholic Church – to

Our New Fellows Program Kicks Off in January 2015

As many of you know, we are introducing a new program this January called the Fellows Program. This new program is primarily based on Halftimer feedback over the years.  We know that even within the small-but-influential population of high-capacity marketplace leaders, we can't be all things to all people. One size no longer fits all.  So to our current offering, the Members Program, we now have added our Fellows Program. The Fellows Program is akin to post-graduate study, more involved and by referral.  Deeper and highly personal, it combines

A couple of years ago, Tom Kessler would be the first to say he’d been thoroughly blessed: fantastic marriage of nearly 30 years to Julie, three children embarking on full and happy adult lives, and a successful business career. His career had included early runs in marketing and sales leadership in the corporate world and then in more recent times, the pinnacles and challenges -- the “startups and startdowns,” Tom calls them, laughing – of launching and running his own businesses. His latest venture, in fact -- as a
