It's time for a new approach to leadership training. 


It’s 2023. Hiring quality candidates is increasingly difficult, and employee engagement continues to fall. To solve these problems you need healthy leaders at every level. People are often promoted into leadership, but not trained to actually lead people. In a fast-paced organization, they are simply expected to figure it out as they go — a long, difficult, and often damaging process. It’s time to ensure that your leaders are fully equipped to lead.

The Approach: Leadership Intensive is a two-day leadership workshop designed to give your leaders the tools to lead themselves and build thriving teams.

Learn to lead a thriving team.

Improve Communication

Effective communication is a vital key to helping your teams thrive.

Increase Team Engagement

Healthy leaders cultivate influence and inspire engagement.


People don’t quit companies, they quit bosses. Give them leaders instead.

What is The Approach?

Before you get to the point of climbing a mountain, you must traverse “the approach”. It is the long stretch of rough ground that must be crossed in order to get to the place where the climb begins. Often, climbers will become frustrated during the approach because they are so eager to climb. Unfortunately they waste that vital time — the approach is when you do final checks, both mental and physical, to ensure you are fully equipped for the climb.

Likewise, many people skip the approach in their careers, promoting into leadership without being fully equipped to lead. Like climbing a mountain without the proper training, leading without preparation can be dangerous. With The Approach: Leadership Intensive, we create space to equip your leaders for their climb. We ensure they have the tools, training, and ongoing partnership needed to lead thriving teams to the top.

Chad Wright

After 25 years in the marketing business and 15 years building my own companies, I began to see a shift in my career. As I looked around at all my fellow entrepreneurs and leaders, I was seeing similar signs of burnout and the fallout that comes from it. I began spending the majority of my time developing our Healthy Leadership Framework and coaching leaders to discover their purpose and defeat burnout. In 2018, we formalized everything with the founding of Forward Partners, and in the process I discovered my life’s purpose: to bring hope and clarity to every person I meet, impacting the lives of millions of leaders. Now I’m on a 40-year journey with my team to transform the future of leadership.

I live in Leander, Texas with my wife of 20 years, Rebecca. We have three sons, Colton, Conner, and Cody.

I’m fired up to partner with you on your journey to become a more impactful leader. Let’s go.
