Since 2009, the team at Strata Leadership has spent tens of thousands of hours elevating life at work by developing effective, consistent leaders through character and competence-based executive coaching and leadership development experiences.

“One of the greatest challenges to leading a healthy team is convincing every team member of their value to the whole. If they don’t take ownership of their role on the team, if they are unwilling to engage and take risks, it makes winning exponentially more difficult.” –Nathan Mellor, Ed.D, PCC
