About Us

The t-factor Leadership Initiative inspires, equips and activates leaders to influence the transformation of employees, and your organization.  As you transform your organization, you become part of a community working together to build a better workplace and leaving a legacy that honors God.

As believers, it can be difficult to balance our devotion to God and our role as corporate leaders. t-factor was born out of the desire that the leadership at Coca-Cola Consolidated had to share their approach to building a God-honoring, purpose-driven corporate culture. The goal was also to partner with other companies whose leaders have a desire to build a purpose-driven corporate culture. These partnerships would allow for a collective movement of companies with a mutual understanding and commitment to building God’s kingdom, by stewarding the resources He has entrusted to them.

t-factor provides leadership experience that activates corporate leaders to build purpose-driven cultures, and develop people who seek Him, connect with their purpose, and serve and care for each other. Through virtual and semi-live events, online resources and networking with like-minded companies, t-factor’s partners will be equipped, empowered and inspired to implement a purpose-driven corporate culture.

We believe that God has the power to transform individuals, organizations, and the world if the leaders are bold enough to create a faith-friendly, servant based and purpose-driven work environment. Start building a lasting legacy by transforming your workplace culture and providing great benefits for your employees and your organization.

Our Purpose

“To transform workplace cultures around the world for good, for God, for growth.”



Purposeful leaders are focused and determined to achieve a purpose.


Servant leaders are focused on others, they are humble, encouraging, inclusive, good listeners, and have foresight.


Inspirational leaders are exciting, encouraging, and motivate others to action.


Educational leaders provide systematic instruction to increase the knowledge and skills for others.


Credible leaders are ethical, trustworthy and believable.
