The Power of a Board of Directors

by Lloyd Reeb, Primary Spokesperson A Personal Board of Directors is a small group of 3-7 people comprised of family, friends, and/or colleagues who are willing to give you input, honest feedback, inspiration and encouragement over time as you go on your Halftime Journey. Why do Halftimers need a Personal Board of Directors? For years now, the Halftime Institute has noticed that people who transition from success to significance in the “healthiest” way have regular input from people who have been specifically asked to provide it. This is different

A Coach’s Point of View: When You’ve Been Given Much

By Lloyd Reeb, Certified Master Coach "When you have been given much and squander it by drifting or through self-absorption, you lose big time." -Lloyd Reeb  You’ve been blessed with success and are looking for greater significance, but what are the rewards of trying to make a difference in this world? And, a more haunting question perhaps, what are the responsibilities that come with success? In my own halftime journey I was confronted by something Jesus said in Luke 12. There’s a large crowd surrounding Him and His small

A COACH’S POINT OF VIEW: FREEDOM IN YOUR SECOND HALF – PART 2

By Rod Stewart, Certified Halftime Coach (We continue this week with the conclusion of Rod’s article.  If you missed last week’s, click here.) This is when God, in His kindness, is able to show us that there is a better way to live. Brokenness is the starting point to realizing there must be a better way to live the Christian life.  Brokenness is a complete surrender of everything we hold so dear.  Brokenness say “Yes, Lord, I will do whatever you want, wherever you want, when you want with all of my

A COACH’S POINT OF VIEW: FREEDOM IN YOUR SECOND HALF – PART 1

By Rod Stewart, Certified Halftime Coach I’ve seen many successful people come into their Halftime experience saying, ‘I’m dissatisfied with my life, and I believe God wants me to do something different. I think doing things more directly for God instead of building my own success will satisfy this hunger in my soul.”  Little do they realize what really is going on runs much deeper than changing careers or using their talents in a new venue.  Rather, God is working in their soul. The marketplace system is built around quid-pro-quo:  you do

MY HALFTIME JOURNAL ENTRY: OCTOBER 12, 2012

By Paul McGinnis, Certified Halftime Coach Every Halftime coach has been through his or her very own, unique Halftime experience.  This fact is one of the most important things our clients have said they appreciate the most.  They know their coach can relate to the craziness, confusion, joy, fear and excitement that many times describe this Halftime journey.  But they also know the coach has come through it successfully. When I went through my Halftime journey, a good friend encouraged me to journal about the experience.  I took the challenge and

THE HALFTIME JOURNEY AND CARING FOR LOVED ONES

By Steve Ivaska, Certified Halftime Coach   I caressed her swollen face, looking deeply into her eyes and said, “Mom, I love you, you are going to be with Jesus,” tears now filling my eyes.  The next morning she saw Jesus face-to-face. My Halftime Journey had seemingly been disrupted three months earlier when Mom, age 83, had been diagnosed with a brain tumor and we moved her into a nursing care facility.  While the staff of the nursing facility worked with Mom to strengthen her as a possible candidate for

I LOST MY HEART

  "I lost my heart." Those were the words Pat Ahern shared with me on a dreary February morning at a local Starbucks. After serving for 20 years as CEO of Red Rocks Credit Union and receiving numerous professional awards, recognition and influential political appointments, Pat had somehow, unknowingly, buried his heart along the way. As a self-admitted "go through the motions Christian," Pat was offered - out of the blue - a senior role with a global Christian nonprofit organization. The offer served to highlight one glaring

A JOURNEY

Editor’s note: Jeff Spadafora is our Director of Global Coaching Services, and has served on the Halftime Institute team since 2005. During a retreat, he wrote a poem… the first time he’s done so as an adult. In it, he surmises the Halftime experience very well.   A Journey by Jeff Spadafora Smoldering discontent just below the surface. Nameless, unidentifiable, real Seeking success and man’s approval fuels the frustration – the heat turns up. Vain attempts to apply impotent worldly salve to the wound. More wilderness – adrift –unvoiced. Suffered
