Healthy Marketplace Leaders Research Project

About the Study

Phase 1

In January and February of 2022, the De Pree Center hosted 18 focus groups. We listened to nearly 100 Christian leaders working across a variety of industries share their perspectives on healthy, faithful, and fruitful marketplace leaders. As we analyzed the data, we uncovered 11 characteristics of these sorts of leaders—the leaders we long to be.

Phase 2

In August and September of 2022, the De Pree Center sought nominations of Christian marketplace leaders who exemplified the 11 characteristics identified in the first phase of our research. We interviewed 34 individuals from a wide variety of industries to learn more about them, including what contributed to their formation as healthy marketplace leaders.  We have been testing and prototyping resources related to this work, including the Go the Distance cohort shown below.
