About me

I love adventure. I spent a season in Antarctica, backpacked New Zealand, I have climbed many peaks and regularly spend time in the Colorado wilderness camping and fishing. But the greatest adventure of my life is being a faithful husband to Julie and dad to my four kids. 

I am crazy about helping hungry leaders conquer overwhelm and navigate with courage. I serve leaders and organizations around the country through coaching, speaking, consulting, designing experiences, hosting mastermind groups, writing my own books and ghostwriting for others. I co-host Right Side up Leadership Podcast and regularly write for Outreach and Field Notes .  

I founded and lead a team of 18 coaches, consultants and content creators at Stay Forth Designs to help leaders GET HEALTHY + REACH MORE IMPACT.

“Alan’s ability to listen, discern, gently guide, and encourage brought us to new levels of understanding and propelled us beyond our log-jam and back to forward progress. The team agreed, even with combined experience of over 60 years, that this was the best meeting facilitation that we’ve ever experienced.”
