The Seven Fs helps us live with
less stress and lead with less fear.
We all have the Seven Fs in common: faith, family, finances, fitness, friends, fun, and future. Arranged alphabetically, they tell a powerful story about how good leaders radiate goodness.
Faith – How satisfied are you with your spiritual life? Family – How satisfied are you with your loved ones, who share a common sense of home? Finances – How satisfied are you with how your money funds your priorities? Fitness – How satisfied are you with the health of your body? Friends – How satisfied are you with the people who share your joys and disappointments? Fun – How satisfied are you with the part of your life that is playful and joyful? Future – How satisfied are you with the hope you have for yourself and others?

Blending – A strategy for success.
We do not believe in the notion of work/life balance. Because that notion implies one is a sacrifice for the other. Blending is a better idea.
Blending is about finding ways to satisfy as many of the Seven Fs as possible in all of our daily activities: personal or professional. Blending is being aware of how the Seven Fs are alive in us at every moment – not just at home or at work. It about how our professional life makes us a better person – and how our personal life makes us a better leader.
