Dr. Joseph Umidi has always been intrigued by the role of Ambassadors to a nation; how they are trained, how the best of them are able to create milestone memories at key moments in difficult conversations. When he discovered over 550 people whose lives were altered by one personal conversation with an Ambassador over his four-year tenure in the U.S., he knew he had found his life calling.  In 1999 he started Lifeforming, a training organization to train leaders with Ambassador quality skills that has become an international movement of over 10,000 certified relational leaders in 31 countries and 14 languages.  His 32 years of teaching at Master and Doctoral levels at Regent University, including roles as Dean and now as Executive Vice President, have given him opportunities to interact with present and emerging global Ambassadors.  In 2017 he launched the Ambassador Alliance, a membership platform for helping hundreds of influential leaders maximize their Personal Leadership Effectiveness through unique coaching clusters and cutting-edge technology.  

The release of the first MasterCoach APP in 2018 is becoming a major tool for Ambassador leaders to leverage their influence in‍‍‍ authentic and sustainable coaching supervision to millennials and others in the workplace.  To support this global network, he has authored numerous articles and books dealing with personal, organizational, and community Transformation, and is working internationally with transformation strategies in the developing nations. He is married to Marie Umidi, Founder & President of TMCJ, Inc., an Arts organizations that has empowered hundreds of thousands through dramatic theatre and video broadcast presentations around the world.  Their greatest joy is to model and teach these values of Honor to their married son and three grandchildren.
