LEARN HOW

Love Your Work. Love Your Life.

Lead your life with purpose and impact. Our framework integrates personal wellness, family fulfillment, and professional excellence to transform your life and those around you.
Lead Your Life with Self-Leadership
You are the leader of your own life, and leadership begins with the Self. Leadership transcends the self to family and friends, and into our work lives. Your life has meaning, and achieving harmony between the Self, family, and work leads to a meaningful life.
Nurturing Personal Wellness and Well-Being
To work and relate well with others, you must take care of your own personal wellness, as well as learn how to facilitate the personal and professional well-being of your family and team members. Life is three-dimensional, and happiness and well-being are only possible when you nurture all three dimensions.
Achieving Personal Growth and Fulfillment
If you want to learn how to achieve personal growth and well-being, enjoy a more fulfilling family life, and make a significant difference in the lives of your team members at work, you are in the right place.
Learn and Apply Leadership Self Skills
You can learn and apply Leadership Self Skills to any area of your life. Learn the fundamental practices, behaviors, and actions of leadership to transform your life and that of others, at home and at work. This is leadership for the real world.
Why the RA Pinnacle Group?
A distinguishing feature of the RA Pinnacle Group as compared to other consulting groups is our formal training in psychology, neuroscience, and education, combined with our extensive knowledge and experience in organizational leadership, human behavior, and executive management. More importantly, we provide focused and customized programs responsive to your specific personal, team, and/or organizational needs.
The Impact of Good Leadership
Good leadership is good leadership regardless of the area of life in which it is practiced. You make a difference, and you can have a positive impact on the lives of others, beginning with believing in yourself, enhancing your personal wellness, and learning leadership strategies through our Pinnacle Performance Program.
