Making a Difference . . .
from the inside out…in service to Self, others, and the greater good.

Inspiring. Engaging. Transforming.

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I’ll meet you there.” Rumi

Difference Makers Circle™ helps people become more integrated, effective, fulfilled, authentic, and purposeful versions of themselves…in life, in work, and in relationships!

How? Through helping them discover and connect the dots of their unique FISC™ (Facts, Influences, SoulDNA™, Characters).

Whether we’re facilitating Circle book studies or workshops, or providing one-to-one coaching, our work is grounded on the values of:

Awareness…inside and out.

Respect…for the dignity and uniqueness of each individual

Connectedness…with Self, with your ‘Higher Power’, and with Others that inspires, engages, and transforms.

Through DMC Circles / Workshops, and private coaching, we help our clients explore, clarify, develop, and apply their unique purpose and potential as positive Difference Makers.

Do you…

…want to help make the world a safer, saner place? Are you feeling pushed, pulled, or called toward something more or different? Do you want to increase your ability to lead, serve, or help others? Are you in transition and want to make wise decisions about your future?

If you’ve said yes to any of these questions, we’d love an opportunity to guide you on a journey of discovering your ‘what’, ‘why’, and ‘how’. We want to help you step more fully into your unique potential and purpose—personally or professionally—as a positive Difference Maker…starting from the inside out.

Our ‘12 Steps of Self-Leadership’ concepts, materials, and processes will:

  • Inspire you to connect with the unique power of your FISC™ (Facts, Influences, SoulDNA™, Characters.)
  • Engage you in meaningful exploration and development of your potential and purpose.
  • Transform your impact on Self, others, and the greater good through living and leading ‘on Purpose’.

Personalized learning.   Meaningful processes.   Purposeful action.  
Inspiring. Engaging. Transforming.

We are all Difference Makers.
If you’re committed to making a positive difference, we invite you to embrace, embody, and share our

Difference Makers Manifesto

We are the courageous ones, the questioners, the dreamers
the explorers, the challengers, the dropouts, the seekers.

To us status quo is Latin for slow death.
We will not settle for win-lose zero-sum games and power politics.
We will create safe places where hearts and dreams are welcome.

We will leave the noisy debates and well-worn paths
and follow our souls and imaginations to new possibilities.
We will make our own way into a place of mystery and unlimited potential.

We choose to live and lead with total engagement
respecting diversity, with gratitude and creativity
embracing the freshness and vitality of the current moment.

Our WOW doesn’t have to be loud or showy because
we realize how much difference one small candle can make.
Sometimes our difference is subtle, quiet, and unnoticed by the masses.

We will love our struggles and our triumphs.
We will love our successes and our defeats.
We will love the people and opportunities in our lives.

We will live in the moment with openness and anticipation
leaning into the emerging future with hope and optimism.
We will stay nimble. We will stay curious. We will keep it fresh

We are committed to a life-long quest.
For us there is no finish line since
we will live on in spirit, hope, and courage
ever expanding ripples on the surface of reality.

We are the Difference Makers.
