We make the hard work of inclusive leadership simple to understand and easy to do.
WE TRANSFORM LEADERS INTO MASTER ALIGNERS
LEADERSHIP OFTEN SEEMS LIKE AN UPHILL BATTLE.
The problem is, most leaders don’t know how to get people aligned behind a good idea. It can be practically impossible to get everyone on the same page, much less moving forward together. Imagine if you were a leader who could.
The promise of leadership is alignment. As a leader your job is to guide us to row together to amplify each other’s contribution; to engage us in a creative exploration that evokes our common passion; and create a truth-telling culture that helps us achieve our mission. Fulfilling that promise gets the best ideas implemented. We help you become that kind of leader.
There is an art to getting people to align behind a goal and feel on fire to deliver it. Our practice is dedicated to developing that art form and helping you master it.

"Prior to working with LeadershipSmarts, I struggled with trusting my team to follow through on a vision and pursue the goals we had all agreed on. In addition to helping me understand and cultivate my own leadership style, Patty truly helped me understand how to build the relationship I need for us all to succeed. Cooperation between teams is at an all-time high!"
Southeastern Region Operations Manager
“The LeadershipSmarts approach to leadership has helped me discover an authentic leadership style that allows me to bring my whole self to work and enables my team to feel comfortable doing the same. This has changed the way we work at the core level, allowing us to build trust, collaborate more openly and perform at a much higher level. I know I am a much more effective leader as a direct result of my coaching. I cannot recommend this process enough to any leader wishing to improve their effectiveness, emotional EQ and the capabilities of their team."
