Welcome, Friend. 

Next Group, April 13th!

CALLING ALL MEN! - Is your life as fulfilling as you thought it would be? 


If you are like most guys, the answer is ‘NO’.  


You want to love your job.  But don’t.

You want to be leading your direct reports well.  But you doubt you are.

You want your marriage to be thriving.  But it is stagnant.

You want to be present and intentional with your kids.  But you are too tired.

You want to be spending time in the Word and growing closer to God. But you are too busy.


What if I told you that you could improve in all of those areas?


Yes, we will never be perfect, however, we can improve all areas of our life.


How do I know?  


Because I have been there before.  


I have been in a job I didn’t like.  Left a job. Been fired.

I have had super low points in my marriage, including an affair.

I have been the father on my computer while the kids are playing.

I have drifted in my Spiritual life.


I have hit rock bottom numerous times.


However, over the last decade, I learned tools that helped me in all areas of my life.


I left my 20-year corporate career and built a coaching practice from scratch to invoicing over $1M.

My wife and I overcame my dumb mistake and are celebrating 24 years of marriage this summer.

My kids and I have a strong relationship and I am intentional with dates and overnight trips.

I now make time for meeting up with friends, including guy trips.


You can improve all the areas of your life as well.


How do I know?


Because I have helped over 100 Executive clients - just like you - through one-on-one and group coaching.


Those tools are in this 12-week alliance.


This 12-week alliance will help you clarify your purpose, increase your confidence and consistently take action toward your priorities.


We will have live weekly calls to help build community and provide accountability.


Calls take place every Thursday from Noon-1 PM EST.


Plus, you and I will have one 1:1 session later in the mastermind to help create your personalized plan so that you leave with a clear path forward.

Join the next alliance on April 13th, 2023!

But why should you listen to me?
Here's what other leaders say about me

Wealth Management Advisor
He has made me not only a better businessman, but a better man.

I’ve worked with a lot of coaches and Cory is the best. He has focused on my personal growth over my professional growth and what I’ve found is that when you grow personally you always grow professionally, but not necessarily the other way around.

Useful at all levels and great for teaching across the entire organization.

I am grateful we hired Cory and for the lasting impact his coaching has had on our team. His passion and personality, blended with his direct approach and real-world experience provide a great environment for transformation and growth.

Director, Manufacturing & Supply Chain

So, are you ready to make a change?

Here is what's inside the Intentional Leader Alliance.
The 4 P's Framework






In the book, 'Good to Great', Jim Collins says what makes great leaders different is they confront the brutal truth, yet have an unwavering hope for the future.


This module is the 'What is' of your current reality.


Early in the alliance, through a series of exercises and questions, you will identify the current breakthroughs, frustrations, and battles you are currently facing.


In order to have hope for your future, you need to know where you want to go. More importantly, you need to know who you need to become in to order tackle your future. 


This module is the 'What could be' for your life.


During this portion of the mastermind, you will develop a vision for your life that will give you more purpose, passion, and patience in everything that you do.


Now that you know where you currently are and where you want to go in your future, this module will help you determine the priorities needed to get there.


This module is the 'What will be' for your life.

During this portion of the alliance, you will learn how to prioritize relentlessly using a proven framework.

Path Forward

What makes this alliance so impactful, is it is not just about information, but instead implementation.


Yes, you will receive proven exercises and frameworks that are used in my one-on-one coaching program, but you will be putting them into action.


During and after this alliance, you will develop the path forward for the new habits and rhythms you need in order to become your future self.

Financial Advisor
I found great value in Cory's Leader Challenge

The content was extremely helpful and relevant to not only my business but also as a husband and father! Would highly recommend it to anyone who is not only looking to grow their business but as a leader at home!

Three words 'work life balance'.

If someone is seeking to re-center themselves or their approach in life this was a great experience. The course was made up of daily exercises taking 10-30 min. Each exercise is built to inspire thought and direction on what we are accomplishing both at work and at home.

Thanks Cory for your wisdom!

This workshop was instrumental in helping me refocus my priorities and getting me back to where I needed to be both spiritually and physically. The tools he provided with are something I will carry with me into my job, and most importantly integrate these concepts at home for years to come.

The greatest investment you can make is in yourself.

Cory helped me better structure my days and weeks, create new habits of reflection, gratitude and prioritization that have helped me make different choices than I normally would and am getting better results.

Cory is personable, relatable, transparent, driven to help.

I was able to develop a new attitude towards my day-to-day, strategies to help me achieve my goals, and clarity about where I want to go in life. It did not take long for me to realize that Cory was a great fit for me in terms of what I wanted in a coach.

My wife was sad the alliance was over because she felt the difference it made in my life.

It was impactful in my work life, my marriage, my relationship with my parents, and my role as a father. I have engaged Cory for further coaching and am looking forward to continuing to work with him

30 Daily Lessons and Actions (3).png

Do You Want to Become More?

Congrats you have made it this far! There must be something that has piqued your interest.   


Is it more about your home life or your work life?  Or maybe both. It often spills over into both.


Have you felt this way for a while?


What have you done prior to now to fix the problem?


I gotta ask, how is that working for you?


It probably is not working since you're reading this. So, if you don't get this fixed in your home or work life soon, what will happen?


Maybe boredom. Complacency. Depression.


How will that help your marriage? Parenting? Work performance?


I think I know the answer, because I was there myself.


As I have shared before, I had to get a coach to help me. 


The books, podcasts, and mentors were not enough.  


I needed direction, accountability and outside perspective along the way. I hired my first coach in June 2013 and over the last 8+ years have invested over $100,000 in myself through coaching, masterminds, and courses. (I have the spreadsheet)


I took all that knowledge, plus my own life and business experiences, and have been coaching other business leaders like you for the last four years.


So, after working directly with one-on-one clients, some spending as much as $20,000 per year to work with me, I have put this same content into a program that is affordable to others.


Through these group calls and videos, you can get access to the same content that one-on-one clients are using to transform their careers and their home lives.

If for any reason you aren't satisfied with the program, just let me know, and I'll refund 100% of your money, no  questions asked

I want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase and am confident you will be as you take steps towards becoming the best version of yourself

Testimonials .png

As an entrepreneur, former executive, husband, and father of three, Cory Carlson understands the pressures working parents face. He is passionate about helping business leaders win at home and work.

Twenty years in corporate America gave Cory amazing opportunities as he worked his way up to the executive level. But he also saw brokenness: work without purpose, burnout, lack of focus, strained marriages, and absentee parents. Business leaders especially were often not living life to the fullest.

When Cory discovered coaching, it helped him become a better leader, husband, and father. So he left his corporate career to help other leaders win at work and at home. Cory does this through executive coaching, speaking, and writing.

Currently, Cory lives in Cincinnati with his awesome wife and three amazing children.

Cory has a Civil Engineer degree from the University of Missouri and an MBA from Rockhurst University.

His first book released in June 2019 titled, Win at Home First, is an inspirational guide for work-life balance. His book was Amazon's #1 New Release in 3 Categories and listed in FORBES as ‘7 Books Everyone On Your Team Should Read’.

Cory just released his second book, Rise and Go. This book is a resource to help leaders get back up quicker after getting knocked down from the challenges of leadership and life.

He hosts the leadership podcast, Win at Home First, a Top 1.5% global podcast per ListenNotes.

  • Isn’t all this type of content on the internet for free?
    Yes. The internet is filled with knowledge. Yet, how many books do you own that you have not read? How many podcasts have you listened to and implemented all those good ideas? The problem is not a lack of information, but a lack of implementation. This program is a guide using information that works, plus a system to help you implement, and then group calls to help hold you accountable.
  • Will this work for me?
    If you are hungry and humble, yes. Hungry to learn by watching the videos and doing the exercises. From there, implementing in your life your findings and revelations. Humble to learn from my mistakes and consider a new way of doing things since you feel like your way is not working. After 12 weeks, you can go back to your ways, but I am confident you won't.
  • Will this help my marriage?
    More than likely. In order to improve the marriage, we have to start with you. Helping you to listen to them better, go on dates and spend time together, be quick to forgive, and the list goes on! Now, after 12 weeks, if you personally have made significant changes and your spouse notices you have improved, yet the marriage is still stuck, well then we can talk about next steps - i.e. counseling. However, in my experience, most marriages are improved when one member is showing up consistently everyday to love, serve, and pursue the other.
  • Is this program for men only?
    Yes, this particular group is designed for men only. Although the majority of my clients have been men, I have coached both male and female leaders. Check out my coaching page to learn more!
  • Why is this course better than others?
    It works. Now are there better courses out there? Probably. However, this one works. Plus, you are here and ready. You could spend weeks, maybe months, or even years, looking for the perfect program, meanwhile your life is still stuck. So do this course. It has helped hundreds like you before and eventually it will help thousands. Don't let looking for the perfect program to get in the way of your progress. Your family and your team need you.
  • Will we have 1:1 access to Cory outside our calls?
    Most likely not. This program is designed to be a lower investment, thus lower touch program. If you are interested in more 1:1 coaching, then we can discuss that coaching program.
  • What if I miss a day or two in the program?
    That is OK! Yes, the days build on each other, but they are also stand alone ideas and tasks. If you want to go back and review content, you can! However, you will still make progress if you commit to the majority of the days.
  • Will this program work for me if I am single or do not have kids?
    Yes! This program is about becoming a better version of yourself. What is your vision? What are your priorities? In order to be a better spouse and parent, we have to be better ourselves. So this program is about improving ourselves.
