MY Story

Where It All Began

I was in 7th or 8th grade when I was taught the lesson of leading from the front. As a young girl at a predominantly white school, my lack of engagement and average grade prompted a parent/teacher conference. During that meeting, the teacher reported that I could be doing better if only I would be more engaged and not sit in the back of the class.  On our way home, my mother taught me the lesson of leading from the front and not the back by making the statement that I didn’t have to sit in the back of anything, “because too many people had died for me to sit in the front.” From that day forward and well into my adulthood, I chose to sit in the front..whether it was a conference, class, or workshop, you could find me in the front or close to it. Learning this lesson was the foundation of my passion for leadership development. I believe that everyone is a leader and it takes coaching and development to be an effective one.
