About Us

We care about your success as much as you do.

At Strata Leadership, we know you are trying to build a successful company.

But, like many businesses, you may not have the tools, resources, or even the time to develop your leaders and that can have a negative impact on your culture and bottom line.

We believe that great companies like yours deserve a trusted partner that can develop and equip your leaders.

That’s why we are passionate about serving leaders who believe in elevating the lives of their team. The success of your team matters as much to us as it does to you.

For 15 years, we have spent thousands of hours developing effective, consistent leaders through character and competence-based coaching and development programs. From equipping emerging leaders to refreshing busy senior leaders, we have several individual and group programs that can be done on-site, off-site, virtually, or even in a National Park.

The foundation for all that Strata Leadership does is based on our Mission, Vision, and Values:

Mission: Elevating Life at Work

Vision: Develop leaders and organizations by providing coaching services and training programs that strengthen character and competence.

Values: We are deeply committed to the ongoing development of character utilizing Character Core. 

–      We embody a growth mindset.

–      We believe in serving others with radical hospitality.

–      We continually strive to do the right thing.

–      We steward time and resources well.

–      We set the tone and pace.

Your path to success:

First, let’s talk. We want to learn more about you, your company, and your vision.

Next, we’ll create a coaching or development plan specifically designed for the needs of your team so that you can confidently grow your business. With a thriving workplace, you’ll be amazed at what you can accomplish.

It’s time for you to stop missing out on your team’s potential and start enjoying the success that comes with effective leadership.
