Sometimes as a leader, instead of soaring high, we crash and burn, and face the question, “How can I ever recover from this?” Our special guest today, Warwick Fairfax, has walked through that fire and has recovered.


Join us today to see how God can turn ashes into beauty as Warwick shares:


  • Philosophical and practical breakthroughs that will get you through the thick of your leadership issues, so you can turn your crucible into a defining moment


  • Insight on the common denominators among people who rise above and those who meltdown but never rise back up... so you'll have what you need to overcome blind spots


  • The choices you can make right now, to let your pain be used for a God-given purpose, so He can do some of His mightiest work in and through you



About Warwick Fairfax


Warwick Fairfax is the founder of Crucible Leadership, a philosophical and practical breakthrough in turning business and personal failures into the fuel for igniting a life of significance. He has been hailed by Forbes as offering “compelling insights for anyone who would like to wake up feeling inspired by their work but doesn’t” ... insights rooted not in a checklist of glib to-do’s but in his own experience at the epicenter of one of the most spectacular business failures in the history of his home nation of Australia.

Fairfax was only 26 when, as the fifth-generation heir to a media empire bearing his family name, he led — and lost — a multibillion-dollar public takeover bid. The result? The company founded by his great-great-grandfather slipped from family control after 150 years, leaving him to examine not only his own shortcomings and losses but also his life’s principles and the lessons he learned from family members who came before him and some of history’s greatest leaders. It has been by shaping these insights as a leadership adviser that Fairfax has enabled others to learn from what he describes as their own “crucible experiences” and emerge to lead a life rooted in who they are. His journey has opened a door for men and women from all walks of life to not only bounce back from failure but to become the leaders they were born to be.

Fairfax is the author of Crucible Leadership: Embrace Your Trials to Lead a Life of Significance (Mount Tabor Media, 2021). The book discusses for the first time his thoughts and actions in launching the John Fairfax Ltd. takeover and explains what he learned about himself from that devastating failure — who he was and was not his unique design, purpose, passions, and vision really were.

He shares insights from his experience and interviews other leaders who have leveraged their crucible moments to live and lead with significance on the podcast BEYOND THE CRUCIBLE, available through all major podcasting channels.

Fairfax holds an undergraduate degree in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics from Oxford University and earned his MBA from Harvard Business School. He is an International Coach Federation (ICF) certified executive coach. He is an Elder at Bay Area Community Church. He lives in Annapolis, Maryland, with his wife, Gale. They have three children who are in the process of developing their own unique paths to lives of significance.

Do you long to bridge the gap between issues that separate us? If so, then step into a sacred space with us today. Even though we live in wonderful, beautiful times, we are more divided than we have ever been before. But the Holy Spirit is still at work, often through powerful coaching conversations. Today, we get to listen in on a special conversation, a truly sacred space. We invite you to turn off your earthly ears. Don't listen for answers to complex questions. Instead, open up your spiritual ears and learn to ask the right questions, be in the questions, and seek God on what he wants for us in this culture. 


For such a time and place as this:


  • Consider the bigger, better vision of true unity so you can see and appreciate dynamic diversity.

  • See our differences, but do not be impaired by them.

  • Practice plugging things into the context of Scripture, instead of lifting things out of context.
