We’re sincerely glad you’re here…thank you.
As executives, we spend hours studying “leadership development” and have most-likely invested in some type of “personal growth” program, but it’s generally not until an unexpected moment arises, that we flip the switch and begin to live our lives intentionally, and with purpose.
Our life experiences are critical to how leadership skills are formed, but more importantly, our responses and reactions to those experiences determine the type of leaders we will become.
Being an authentic and genuine leader is not something we are born with. It’s part of a journey of personal growth that we take throughout our lives; in the challenges we face; the individuals we encounter; and our ability to adapt and affect change. Significant moments of clarity, adversity and diversity, change how we understand ourselves and ultimately shape our leadership approach.
Leadership is personal. Leadership development IS personal development. It is essentially impossible to improve our leadership capacity without improving ourselves personally. This is where our Executives’ Club is focused.
Great leaders are wealthy, filthy rich with self-awareness. They are comfortable getting uncomfortable. They have done the difficult personal work to better understand themselves, and, in turn, create richer, more meaningful relationships with their teams.
As a Member of The Executives’ Club of Fargo-Moorhead, you are enrolled in a personal development program. You are joining a “business initiative”, where we discuss leadership development and business growth, but one who’s primary purpose is ingrained in personal growth.
Personal growth develops you as a leader and motivates you to strive for excellence, versus mediocrity. In so doing, you will make a positive impact not only in your life and career, but in the lives of those around you.
As an organization, we are committed to helping our Members grow, to elevate their consciousness about themselves and their lives, and to giving them the tools and mindset to elevate their leadership and the potential of those around them.
We were founded, not simply as an initiative, but rather to test your initiative. We provide a series of opportunities designed to draw forth your innovation, your creativity, and your determination. We create situations (or the opportunity for you to create situations) which require greatness to succeed. Our intentional purpose is to create that unexpected moment where you “flip the switch”, rise to the challenge, lead the team and live intentionally.
This is our model.
We tend to grow in spurts, with periods of great focus, followed by periods of complacency. The Executives’ Club, with Signature Programs designed to address each of these periods, is your club, a catalyst for personal development and the development of your leadership abilities. We thank you for taking the initiative!
Thank you for visiting.

If you’ve read this far, thanks, that means a lot to us. We’re looking for individuals with that initiative and commitment.
This is not a typical networking group. If you’re here primarily for business leads, you’re in the wrong place. There are numerous groups in Fargo-Moorhead that do an incredible job of that.
If you’re here because you’re looking for something different, something challenging, something more meaningful, (yet fun), I believe you’re in the right place.
Many people come and go from the Club without ever realizing its’ intended purpose, and we quietly allow that to happen. They didn’t grasp the opportunity.
The Club is collectively yours; to help determine its’ direction; to help bring value to other Members; to help shape its’ future.
You’re invited to…
- lead a conversation
- develop a program
- run a workshop
- sponsor an event
- recruit fellow business leaders and colleagues
- bring your ideas to the table
- be upfront
- get to know each other
- learn by teaching
- create big moments
- live intentionally
As Founder, I am personally committed to the professional success and personal fulfillment of our Members who engage, and available to them at any time, for any reason.
My contribution to this organization is a deep network of friendships and associations with many of the area’s best business leaders and my desire to make those connections to you and your organization.
Please schedule a visit. Use my Calendar to find a time for us to visit. Let’s talk about your projects and who you need to meet to move each of them forward.
again…thank you. sincerely.
Kurt McSparron, Founder
