Since I was a kid I've been passionate about taking things apart to understand how they work and trying to reassemble them in a way that makes improvements. Acumen allows me to apply that passion in a unique way...understanding how the leaders and businesses in our peer-group work, but facilitating improvements in those leaders and businesses through the collective contributions of the peer group.
"The biggest challenge to any leader is decision making...knowing what to do when to do it, and how to do it. The second biggest challenge is living with our decisions...knowing when and how to course-correct, and regaining any momentum and confidence that was lost."
I'm a "Why" guy, so anytime I need a recharge I prayerfully go to the scriptures and dive into the deep end of the pool asking one "Why" after another. It helps me gain perspective and see there's a bigger story to life. Then I come back energized and inspired to take on the challenges and opportunities before me.
My wife Cheryl and I love day trips to the Flint Hills to walk the Prairie Grass Trails and experience together the expanse of God and His creation.
