Her work began in her local church of 4,000, where she had previously held numerous positions, such as Women’s Minister and Care Director. 

 

Cheryl is primarily a business and executive coach with over 12,000 hours of coaching experience.

Would you like to press pause on the endless cycle of hurry and worry? If yes, then tune into this extremely important podcast. Because we all have unconscious beliefs, unspoken fears, and hidden habits we so easily rely on that feed our fast-paced culture. Whether the disembodied voices you hear are from others or yourself... past or present... it's time to silence them. 

 

  • Stop mentally rehearsing all your self-sabotaging thoughts so you can start moving ahead with the things you intend to do.

 

  • Shed light on unseen factors and the specific mindsets that convince you that you can't accomplish your goals and find out how you can reach your greatest potential.

 

  • Learn more about "hurry sickness" (yes: it's a real thing!) and how you can heal from the harrowing effects of time urgency.

The Daltons successfully established thirteen pregnancy centers in Missouri including Pregnancy Resource Center of Rolla where Jane serves as Executive Director under the leadership of her husband who serves as CEO.

 

More than a decade ago, Jane integrated coaching conversations into the decision-making process when working with abortion minded mothers. She is an expert in option coaching techniques and is passionate about equipping other pregnancy centers with the knowledge and skills needed to use coaching conversation to empower the abortion determined mother to make a decision that both she and her child can live with.

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.
