LIVE BY DESIGN: THE SIX KEY QUESTIONS EVERY LEADER NEEDS TO LEAD THEMSELVES WELL

Your potential to lead others is a direct result of how you lead yourself. Too many leaders are busy leading everything and everyone except themselves. I coach you through the six key questions that become the choices that help you thrive and flourish in every area of life. Overlook any of these areas and you will not bring the ultimate fulfillment, effectiveness, and legacy you desire.

The Six Questions:

  1. Will you establish strategic clarity?​

  2. Will you make your unique contribution?

  3. Will you keep your life in balance? 

  4. Will you nurture quality relationships?

  5. Will you pursue spiritual vitality? 

  6. Will you be a steward of your finances?

MEET YOUR GUIDE

I've always been interested in finding purpose. That thing that drives you or gets you out of bed in the morning. I've found my purpose is to help others grow to realize their full potential and make a positive impact in the world.


There are four drivers to all my work. Social innovation, Organizational health, Leadership Development, and Practical faith. 

I've been a mission-driven leader with over 12 years of social sector innovation. I earned my master’s degree in social welfare (MSW) and hold numerous certificates in design-thinking for social innovation.  


My clients include entrepreneurs, business leaders, nonprofits, corporate executives, church leaders, change agents, and organizations of all sizes.

Typical Clients

Social good entrepreneurs, leaders, and businesses. Growth-minded companies, typically with $2M - $20M in revenue, and 10-250 employees. The leaders must be purpose-driven, open-minded, and more afraid of the status quo than they are of change.

Areas of Expertise and Capability

  • Strategy 

  • Social Impact 

  • Design Thinking 

  • Systems Thinking 

  • Organizational Health - Culture Alignment 

  • Brand Strategy 

  • Community Engagement 

  • Collective Impact 

  • Social Determinants of Health

  • Leadership Development 

  • Startup- research, Strategic Foresight, Design and Incubation

  • Marketing

  • Nonprofit Leadership

  • Church Consulting​

Yumi

Tiffany

"Before coaching with Dylan I had ideas and interests in mind however struggled with clarity and what direction to go and how to achieve those life goals. After completing a personal vision and completing the exercises, I went from feeling confused to having direction and direct, achievable steps."

Hannah

"As a leader, I often get lost in the forest of ideas. Dylan has helped me live with purpose, think clearly, set priorities, and experience results. I've greatly benefited from his teaching on leadership and organizational design."

John

Lead By Design has helped to reformat my business to a point where I now feel clear direction and am able to reach a broader customer base. Dylan is an expert in his field and has informed me through exercises, weekly discussions, and consistent collaboration of how to reach my business goals and furthermore expand upon them.

THE FIVE TASKS MASTERMIND

Based on The Five Tasks by Dr. Stephen Graves.

Be part of a peer group of accomplished CEOs, leaders, and business owners who can help you focus on what’s most critical to your long-term strategy and growth.

Peer Groups have three core elements:

  • valuable perspectives from a trusted group of peers

  • professional guidance from an accomplished business leader (Chair)

  • deep insights from subject matter experts

As a senior leader, how do you decide where to invest your energy for maximum effectiveness? The answer is simpler than you might think: every successful leader has just five tasks that represent where they should spend at least 80 percent of their time.


Uncover lessons from The Five Tasks in a 7-session online cohort with CEO-mentor, Dylan Hall.


Focus on What Only You Can Do

Senior leaders like you have so many demands on their time, but there are some things that only you as the leader can truly do. Join Steve Graves as he leads your group through private coaching sessions to help you master The Five Tasks that every leader must prioritize:


  • Set Direction - Leading with Vision

  • Set Speed - Leading a Hybrid Model?

  • Set Risk - Should we buy that building, start that new ministry, hire, fire... all the big questions.

  • Set Resources - What resources do we have? What do we need?

  • Set Culture - Do we have clarity on what's most important? Do my team and volunteers have a shared vision, purpose, set of guiding values? Do we have a clear strategy to make disciples and reach our community? Are we executing our strategy?


OUTLINE


  1. Introduction to Dylan, the Cohort, and The Five Tasks: What does it mean to ‘Set…’ according to your particular wiring and organization?

  2. Setting Direction: Literal, conceptual, and strategic

  3. Setting Speed: There are endless needs pulling you in many directions, how do set your organization's speed?

  4. Setting Risk: When do you bet half—or all of—the farm…and when do you bet someone else’s farm?

  5. Setting Resources: Allocating people and money effectively

  6. Setting Culture: Intentional and ‘accidental’ culture—what we do and what we allow

  7. Operationalizing The Five Tasks
