REBELS. FREE SPIRITS. ADVOCATES. 
What makes a good leader?
Not what you think.

We put on our blazers, straighten our shoulders, and march to our seat at the table because we've been told that's what it looks like to lead.

BS.

Suits and power poses and assertiveness might have worked for prior generations of leaders, but that's not what works today. It's not what will work for you. It's not even what you want.

You can lead from the center of your intersectional being, drawing on all aspects of who you are -- the how and the why of you -- and what brings out your very best.

You already have what it takes to reach your professional goals, no matter your role, your job title, or your ambitions.

We show you how to unlock your potential.
