Thousands of students in Psychology, Business, Leadership, Education, Communication, Divinity, and Government have contributed to the results presented here over a twenty-year period. Over 10,000 coaches have confirmed the validity of this approach as they have created a transformational movement of the father-heart of God to the nations.
