Leadership That Builds People – The Conference


With Dr. Jim Richards & By Design

Sidney, BC

Leadership that builds people

Success for any group begins with good leadership. It doesn’t matter if you’re a parent developing your children for a life of success, running your own business, seeking to start a new business, teaching in a classroom or pastoring a church, the key to success starts with effective leadership.

Dr. Jim Richards has been in business for himself since 1965. He’s developed and led an accredited college, built a world-wide missions organization online, authored multiple best-selling books, and pastored a successful local church, all while raising five children and leading his own businesses in everything from Oriental Medicine to Real Estate development. One of the most important things he has learned through it all is this: every one of those areas requires the exact same set of skills.

“Truth is universal; truth will work in every arena of life!”

Families, businesses, communities, schools and ministries today are crumbling under the weight of an outdated, ineffective leadership model!  We live in a different world with different needs; the people we hire today have different needs than those hired even 10 years ago!  Many businesses are closing their doors as a result of struggling to make profits, under the burden of the high cost for underdeveloped labor.  The number one complaint in todays culture from business owners, pastors and leaders is, “I can’t find good people.” They are hiring people only to discover they cannot be trained, they have no interest in personal development, a poor work ethic, an entitled attitude and in many cases cannot fire them for fear of legal repercussions!

In the home, children and adolescents are facing pressures we never imagined when we were growing up.  Parents are facing battles everyday with their children and teen-agers, unable to communicate effectively with the competition of screens and peer pressure threatening to undermine the values they would hope to guide them with.  Teachers and counsellors are feeling overwhelmed with the responsibility to equip their students for life in the real world.  Debt, financial pressure and stress is at an all-time high, families and marriages are crumbling, hopelessness and suicide rates are rising and many feel powerless over their own lives.

As as result, our society has begun to look to the government to solve the problems we are facing in our day to day lives.  Whether financially or relationally, many have thrown up our hands or thrown in the towel, unable to see the solutions we so desperately need.

A leader is one who sees a problem and seeks the solution. One who embraces the uncomfortable, takes risks and overcomes their fears. To serve when no one else will. To speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. To build when others tear down. To stand out when everyone is sitting back. A leader knows where they are going, and carries a vision so powerful that others are inspired to follow. A leader doesn’t need a title to define them. They just ARE. A. LEADER. Whether you are currently this kind of a leader or you desire to be, this conference is for you.

How can we equip ourselves and others to succeed in a landscape that is changing so rapidly?


How can we mentor and develop those in our circle of influence to experience a fulfilling life amid the destructive distractions that would threaten to take them off course?

Leadership That Builds People is a weekend seminar that will teach you the universal laws of leadership that can be applied to every dimension of life. It will take you through a step by step process to identify, develop, manage, motivate and lead your future dream team, whether that dream team is a healthy family, an effective ministry or a successful business and life!
