Lead head-on into uncertainty.
Spend less time in the storms of chaos.

Surround yourself with peers who run with you to take on the challenges of faith-driven leadership.

As a leader, when you face risk, uncertainty, and instability, how do you respond? 

On the central plains of the U.S., the open range is inhabited by two herd animals—cattle and bison, or the American Buffalo. Although these seemingly formidable animal species share common ground, how they react to an impending storm is very different.


When the skies darken and the thunder rolls, cattle will scatter and run away from the approaching danger. But, they can’t outrun the quick-moving front, so they end up remaining in the peak of the storm for a longer period of time, risking injury, separation from the herd, exhaustion, and greater susceptibility to predators. 


Buffalo, however, will assemble and run headfirst into the approaching storm. They instinctively know that because they are running into the storm instead of with it, they will end up spending a shorter duration of time in the storm with less risk of peril.

Represent the herd. Show them you are a Buffalo Culture Leader.

Surround yourself with those who will answer your questions and question your answers.

Leadership can feel lonely, but it doesn't have to be. With the right people speaking into your plans and providing sound wisdom and insight based on experience, you will be prepared for anything life or business throws at you.

See obstacles and opportunities well before they are right in front of you.

lead well

Fight for excellence and healthy, thriving cultures for those who will run with you. 

lean in

Run head first into challenges and issues before they become bigger problems.
