Halftime Institute

20 Years of Equipping Leaders Around Life Purpose
Dean Niewolny, CEO
Halftime Institute

For over 20 years, the Halftime Institute has studied and served thousands of high-capacity leaders who sense a yearning to be transformed, and ultimately…in their own unique way…transform the world. 

Halftime is a time to refocus and make a game plan for your next season. It’s the time first described in the book, Halftime – the season of “now what?”

The Halftime Institute is the leading authority on creating a next season defined by joy, impact, and balance. We’ve served thousands of men and women from varied backgrounds. We also serve leaders from organizations like Kingdom Advisors, Young Presidents Organization (YPO), and World Presidents Organization (WPO).

Our Beliefs and Culture…

We believe God calls leaders to do something significant with their time, talent, and treasure, and we have been called to serve these people. 

We believe God created every person for a purpose. The Halftime Institute provides products and services to help our clients discover their purpose and live a life of significance.

Working in association with the Halftime Institute is not so much a job, but a calling. For over two decades, we’ve continually improved how we inspire, educate, and mobilize leaders to get clear on their life purpose and engage in it meaningfully – in their work, their family, and their community.

We believe in holistic and sustainable life transformation not just for the individual, but for the entire family. Our solutions include the head and the heart. We facilitate a journey that is not only strategic but also emotional and spiritual. We believe in helping leaders get crystal clear on who they are at their core so that they can effectively serve in what they will do.

At our core, we are a Christian organization, helping people pursue their Ephesians 2:10 calling. 

“For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”  – Eph. 2:10, ESV
