Lean Into Leadership | Inspire Innovation | Cultivate Creativity | Awaken Awareness | Develop Dreams

In your G.R.I.T. Dream Team, you will have the opportunity to build real, human connections with resilient, high-integrity leaders through facilitated confidential 1:1, 3:1 and 12:1 C.E.O. (Challenge, Encourage, Observe) connections.  We question each other's answers, blind spots and implicit biases, collectively tackle complex challenges and develop leadership super-powers, all in a sacred, B.R.A.V.E space for C.O.P.I.N.G.

Giving a Presentation

Is Any of This Familiar?

I sometimes feel lonely and isolated.

I am overwhelmed by a myriad of hats.

I am curious about alternative perspectives.

That decision could have gone better.

I wish I had more time for what brings me joy.

Is what I am presently doing the best use of my time?

Am I self-aware?


Do I have limiting beliefs?

What are my unconscious biases?

Am I an imposture?

What Do We Do?

Check our ego.

Gathering of diverse minds with a shared intent and purpose.

Bring our whole selves to the “table” unapologetically with candid communication.

Assessments for expanded consciousness, self-awareness and acceptance of and empathy for others.

Ongoing C.E.O. (challenge, encourage, observe) connections with your facilitator/coach/thought-partner.

Growth partners experience co-transformation.

Connection + Challenge = Change (Dr. Abdul-Malik Muhammad, Ed.D)


"All of us, at some time or other, need help. Whether we're giving or receiving help, each one of us has something valuable to bring to this world. That's one of the things that connects us as neighbors - in our own way, each one of us is a giver and a receiver."

― Mr. Fred Rogers
