The Starting Blocks—TRAC’s Foundations
TRAC is built on a foundation of both academic leadership development research, and decades of practical experience working to help passionate Christ-followers and leaders experience personal growth and breakthrough.
Former Fuller Seminary professor and the author of The Making of a Leader, Dr. J. Robert Clinton, conducted research that examined the lives of 5000 historical, biblical and contemporary leaders. His research sought to discover how God shapes each of our lives, and to draw insights from those who have gone before us and finished well. Among his findings were principles that would provide the basis for TRAC’s four core need areas.
One of the most startling insights from Clinton’s research was that only one-in-three Christ-followers finish well. For the last 30+ years, Dr. Terry Walling, founder of Leader Breakthru and a protégé of Dr. Clinton’s, has applied this research through the coaching and training of risk-taking, Kingdom leaders. His work and that of Leader Breakthru has been to see a greater percentage of passionate Christ-followers run their race to the end and finish well.
Today, thousands of Christ-follower’s have been impacted by the work of Leader Breakthru and the TRAC situational coaching tool. Here’s what a few of them have to say:
“TRAC has helped me to gain personal clarity on my own journey—where I am at and what help I need to move forward. It has given me clarity and confidence in helping others experience the same breakthrough!”
