Summer Sabbatical Cohort Journey
A community and coaching to help you prepare for, navigate and reorient from your summer sabbatical. 

Why is this crucial?

Sabbatical is an incredible gift, but a serious responsibility to steward. A sabbatical season is disorienting for most leaders, but this season has the potential to shape the course of a leader’s life and leadership in massive ways. 

At Stay Forth we coach leaders to leverage their sabbatical for increased health, transformation and vision. In addition to one-on-one Sabbatical Coaching we are launching a Sabbatical cohort. During this Sabbatical Journey leaders will navigate the joy and challenge of sabbatical in a community of brothers.  

What is The Sabbatical Journey?

The Sabbatical Journey is a cohort comprised of coaching, community and live experiences in Colorado that will help leaders prepare for, navigate and reorient from their summer 2024 sabbatical. This is led by Sabbatical Coaches Alan Briggs and Chad Lunsford.
