Hi, I'm Leland (he/him)
Through a unique mix of self-inquiry, developmental psychology, and experiential learning, I guide individuals and teams to discover and cultivate their inner genius — in service of a larger purpose — in a way that feels authentic.
I don't provide answers. I help people discover their own.
People partner with me when they feel ready to embrace a journey of deep transformation and start playing a much bigger game — a game aligned with who they really are.
If this sounds like you, let's have a conversation to explore how I can help.
We'll work together to draw out your unique gifts and co-create a career and life that feel inspiring to you.
"You have an incredible gift for this work.
The insights and growth I experienced in the three months we worked together were more significant than years of leadership courses, therapy, and journaling combined."
