Full Bio:As a speaker, leadership mentor, and award-winning writer, Dr. Alicia Britt Chole's places words like an artist applying paint to a canvas. Nothing is wasted. Every word matters. Heads and hearts are equally engaged. A former atheist, Alicia's worldview was interrupted by Jesus as she began her university studies. Of that experience Alicia states, "I would have had to commit emotional and intellectual suicide to deny God's reality." Today, her raw faith and love for God's Word hold the attention of saints and skeptics alike. Alicia focuses on less than trendy topics like spiritual pain, the leader's soul, the potential of anonymous years, decrease as a discipline, and the abuse of authority. Business leaders, pastors, college students, and churches agree: Alicia is an unusually disarming combination of realism and hope, intellect and grace, humor and art. Alicia and Barry have been married for thirty years. Along with their three amazing children (all Choles through the miracle of adoption), they live in the country off of a dirt road in the Ozarks. Alicia holds a doctorate in leadership and spiritual formation from George Fox Evangelical Seminary and is the founding director and lead mentor of Leadership Investment Intensives, Inc., a nonprofit devoted to providing confidential and customized soul-care to leaders in the marketplace and church. Her favorite things include thunderstorms, honest questions, LOTR, and anything with jalapeños. In a culture obsessed with things new and countable, Alicia brings ancient truth to life.
