When You Practice What You Preach

One year ago, on April 1, 2021, we announced a strategic shift in Halftime leadership. We can hardly believe what an eventful, providential year it has been, but here we are! Maybe you find yourself feeling the same way as you read this: time seems to be flying. But - what a difference it makes when you are confident that your time is being used purposefully. To illustrate this, we'd love to pause and share the story of someone who has been near and dear to all things

Abiding in the Between

A Devotion written by Halftime Alumna, Carrie Park: What if God asks you to do something that defies all logic and common sense? What if, while in a season of life where there are choppy waters tossing you around, leaving you frightened and exhausted, God calls you to step out in faith and walk towards Him to an unknown place? What would win out -- faith or fear? In Matthew 14, we learn how Peter was faced with the same questions. As

3 Biblical Principles for Pursuing Financial Freedom

By: Dean Niewolny, Chief Executive Officer of Halftime Institute Is pursuing success and the accumulation of wealth “okay” for Christians? For years, many have wrestled with this question. However, the root of the matter is less about how much money you have, and more about where your heart is. If God has given you the ability to make money, and it’s His money anyway, the question then becomes what are you doing with that money for Kingdom purposes?  Rather than encouraging you to sell your belongings and

10 Conclusions on Crisis Leadership

By: Rod Stewart, Halftime CertifiedTM Coach I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what good, strong, Spirit-led leadership looks like in the midst of a crisis.  While watching a documentary on Franklin Delano Roosevelt and how he led our country out of the Great Depression with a combination of clarity, communication and innovation, I marveled at the way he stood up and took responsibility in the midst of fear. It was then that he delivered his famous line, ‘The only thing we have to fear, is fear

How To: Be a Sur-thrivalist

By: Chip DeClue, Halftime CertifiedTM Coach In the midst of this COVID-19 crisis, it can often seem as if the world has stopped.  Plans for the future have been put on hold as uncertainty looms. Business trips, vacations, retirement plans, weddings… most postponed, many outright canceled. And the list goes on. This is especially true for those who are in the process of transitioning into the next season of life.   One Halftime client of mine lamented, “It feels like I’m in the halftime of Halftime.

Feeling Unsettled? 3 First Steps to Figuring Out What’s Next

What do you do when you’ve solved complex problems your whole career, yet you get to a point where you can’t put together the puzzle pieces of your own future path? It is an unsettling place to be for sure. It happened to me, and it happens to most successful leaders in mid-life. You sense a shift of some sort is needed. You feel discontent and restless. But when you try to determine what your next move will be, you are uncertain and confused. Can you relate? Several years
