A leader is courageous, focused, talented, committed, honorable, and a great follower. A leader listens intently, learns continuously, shares openly and wants you to succeed beyond your wildest dreams. The leader gives everything every time with the passion of heart, mind, body and soul until he can give no more…then rests and gives abundantly again. The definition of leader thus given is epitomized in Joe Calhoon! Thank you Joe, you have made a huge difference in our future!

Joe is a joy!

The leadership development meeting that Joe facilitated for us was the most successful and productive meeting we've had in years!
