WINN SUMMIT STRATEGIES
Winn Summit Strategies was formed in response to over 20 years of engaging with leaders and organizations who desire to live out their mission with stability, health and impact, in the for-profit, not-for-profit, and ministry realms.
Angie Winn, owner and principal leader of Winn Summit Strategies, has strengthened leaders and teams through strategy, coaching, training, and organizational-wide performance management systems.
While serving as the Vice-President of Leadership and Organizational Development of CNL Financial Group, Angie had a courtroom experience that would forever change the trajectory of her life. This experience set her on a path to engage with leaders of business, government, church, and non-profit for the purpose of transforming distressed communities. She led a research project called Seeking the Welfare of the City, co-founded a non-profit organization called The Polis Institute, and served on the Board of a global organization, Leadership Foundations, who works across cities on behalf of the poor and vulnerable.
Eventually, she left the corporate world and joined Desire Street Ministries, working along side inner-city ministries and leaders - the street saints- strengthening their impact and helping them persevere for the long-term.
Along this journey, Angie witnessed the tolls of leadership and ministry, and experienced her own degree of burnout. Her “calling” overwhelmed her life. Facing the decline of health, and challenges with relationships and peace, God began to reveal another dimension of leadership, another way- one that stabilizes the soul through the integration of body, mind, heart, and spirit- and changed her stride from aimless striving to intentional, discerned movement towards impact. Stability of the soul in spirit-led movement. Stability in motion.
As Angie began to integrate these contemplative practices into her life, she found herself being asked to share her understanding and practices. Conversations turned to coaching and workshops, tending to her health turned to yoga certification and instructing, and the whole picture culminated in the facilitation of retreats, the launch of a local yoga/workshop/retreat space in Windermere, FL, and the ownership of a retreat house in Breckenridge, CO.
Her credentials include a Masters degree in Industrial/Organizational Psychology from the University of Central Florida, a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from the University of Florida , and certifications in various personality assessments (Myers-Briggs, Kolbe, EQ), executive coaching, and yoga. Although a strong believer of God and a follower of Jesus, Angie consults and coaches people of all beliefs.. Retreats tailored specifically to Christians will be noted in the description.
Her passions include supporting leaders working with distressed populations, helping these populations experience economic and social justice, and following Christ.
Her fun includes her husband, two boys, yoga by the lake, and hiking in the mountains.
And her deep desire is to help people find their own stability in motion- so they can run with perseverance on their journey to the summit.
