C.J. Frost writes a heartfelt, funny and sincere account of how he found happiness and redemption in Finding Your True North. C. J. Frost began experiencing physiological distress after the death of his father. He didn't know where the pain and hopelessness was coming from but it had, throughout his life, left him friendless and alone and in dead-end relationships where he had played and used every woman he was with. As his memory began to become clear to him, he realized he'd been dramatically traumatized as a child. What followed was a exploration that led him into a place of darkness and self-destruction that cost him everything-his marriage, his livelihood and C.J. found himself homeless with no friends and no where to turn. After years of scraping rock bottom, C.J. had an epiphany. He knew he had to turn his life around, not just for him, but for his son. His son became his "True North" and C.J. slowly and painfully began the tenuous path of self-discovery and recovery. Finding an unbridled passion for everyone that is lost, alone and who feel there is no hope and no way out. Frost's inspiring narration will encourage you to reach for and find your own True North, no matter what your life situation or past experiences.

The challenges we face these days are so great that we cannot rely entirely on ourselves, our communities, or our organizations to support us and help us stay on track. We need a small group of people with whom we can have in-depth discussions and share intimately about the most important things in our lives—our happiness and sadness, our hopes and fears, our beliefs and convictions. For the past thirty-five years, Bill George and Doug Baker have found the answer in what they call True North Groups. “At various times,” George and Baker write, “a True North Group will function as a nurturer, a grounding rod, a truth teller, and a mirror. At other times the group functions as a challenger or an inspirer. When people are wracked with self-doubts, it helps build their courage and ability to cope.” Drawing on recent research in psychology and sociology, George and Baker explain why True North Groups are so critical to helping us develop the self-awareness, compassion, emotional intelligence, and authenticity required to be inspired human beings and inspiring leaders. They cover every detail from choosing members, establishing norms, and dealing with conflicts to evaluating progress and deciding when it’s time to restructure. True North Groups provides a wealth of practical resources, including suggested topics for the first twelve meetings, advice on facilitating groups, techniques to evaluate group satisfaction, and much more. For the millions of people who are searching for greater meaning and intimacy in their lives, this book will help them to grow as leaders and as people—and to stay on course to their True North.
