Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” 

– Howard Thurman

Leadership coaching for an everchanging world

The World is Changed…

Over the past 20 years, we’ve seen a proliferation of platforms claiming to connect people across the world and a boom in apps claiming to help people better connect to themselves. Yet, feelings of social isolation and a lack of meaning and purpose are rising.

With more people feeling lonelier in the personal and professional lives, the need for professionals skilled in accompanying people on their path towards purpose is much more necessary. 

That’s where I come in…  

What does a Spiritual Leadership Coach do?

As a spiritual leadership coach, it is my quest to help you realign your life with your purpose and to help you design leadership practices to support your alignment. People who are connected to a sense of meaning and purpose are likely to be happier and more generous.

If you’ve ever felt like a side character in someone else’s story, or like your life is a side quest in someone else’s mission, I’m here to help you find your way back to yourself and your life’s vision. 

Your Life is Your Main Quest

MainQuest has roots in science fiction, black liberation theology, and emergent leadership practices. With your expressed consent, we will work together to create a program that is deeply spiritual (but not necessarily religious), and that empowers authenticity in your personal and professional life. 

With science fiction as a creative lens, we will explore your role in building the world we live in (worldbuilding), how you think about the divine in relation to your story, and which of your strengths will help you get from where you are to where you want to be.  

The MainQuest Promise

You don’t have to feel disconnected from yourself to be the leader you know you can be. Together, we can help YOU BE and lead more like YOURSELF wherever you are. 



Hi, I’m Taj

As a writer and spiritual leadership coach, my quest is to reconnect you with yourself, ignite your creative thinking, and deepen your sense of spiritual connection to the world and your work within it so you feel confident and ready to take on whatever challenges the future might throw your way. 

My writing has appeared in the Huffington Post, the Harvard Divinity Bulletin, and QChristian Fellowship. I’ve preached at First Church in Cambridge, UCC, Old South Church, King’s Chapel, and other churches in the greater-Boston area.
