“In its very basic form, effective leadership requires the authentic commitment of a person with good character, a deeply rooted desire to serve others, and the ability to inspire those who choose to follow.”

– Leslie K. Nelson, Founder and CEO

Adult Leadership Development

Adult learning is unique as a fingerprint. Likewise, what we learn and experience can manifest at home, in the workplace, and in social settings differently. We offer an array of services that prepare, inspire, and transform leaders at all levels so they can lead others authentically, consistently, and effectively, regardless of the setting.

Youth Leadership Development

Without a doubt, our nation’s future prosperity, stability, and security will depend on the instilled values, norms, and social and emotional well-being of today’s youth. Our youth-focused teachings and resources help middle through high school students attain the critical knowledge, interpersonal skills, and values needed to lead themselves as well as this nation in the future.

Parenting & Family Coaching

Parenting is leadership. While parenting today might look or feel different than just a decade ago, parents’ responsibility to set good examples and equip children socially and emotionally has not changed. Through a variety of sessions, parents, legal guardians, and other caregivers of children will learn effective principles and practices for raising adults of the future.

Personal Development Coaching

Sometimes we all need accountability and a gentle reassurance before we gain confidence to make sound personal and professional decisions. Our coaching services focus on work, career, and personal and professional growth.

A true leader is someone who recognizes when to put aside their own agenda in order to support and mentor others. Leslie Nelson is one of those leaders.
