Kyrene de la Mirada Leadership Academy at 5500 W. Galveston Street, Chandler AZ


Because of the fast-paced world we live in, it is fundamentally important to stop and reflect on the emotional stability and well-being of the family unit. Without intentionally cultivating a positive and uplifting environment, valuable relationships can become strained over time. The 7 Habits of Successful Families provides a powerful framework for implementing timeless principles that create a nurturing and enriching environment for all members of the family.

Charles Fonbuena began his leadership journey with Franklin Covey in 1991. He has worked with thousands of leaders in various private, public, and education industries throughout the US and Canada. With his vast experience, he learned and relearned what Albert Einstein said: “The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.”

By understanding and living by timeless principles, we can address all our current significant problems. We can predictably have more fulfilling lives and happy families and be the kind of person others want to work with and align systems that empower and achieve sustained superior performance. He has taught and applied these principles as a senior consultant, general manager, husband, father, and volunteer with authenticity, wisdom, humor, and the spirit of pre-forgiveness.

Charles earned his Master of Business Administration (MBA) Degree from the University of Louisiana Lafayette. Charles and his wife Julie co-authored Time Management for Moms and Other Executives and Leadership Is a Way of Life. They are the grateful parents of seven children and call Alpine, UT, their home.

“Historically, the family has played the primary role in educating children for life, with the school providing supplemental scaffolding to the family.”
