LeadHership's Mission

Empowering Women to Embrace that They are

Powerful, Purposed, and Priceless!


  • POWERFUL Becoming a woman who believes anything is possible and wants to succeed at what she puts her mind to accomplish. A woman who is confident and comfortable in her own skin; she doesn’t feel the need to compare herself to others or be who others expect her to be. A woman who believes unequivocally “I am enough.” She is vulnerable enough to ask for help, and can laugh at herself on good days and bad. A woman who embraces her leadhership and shares her power with others.
  • PURPOSED Becoming a woman who wakes up with purpose and engages in the very things that make her passions ignite. A woman who wants to make a difference and dares to love, laugh, and live and without regret. She accepts the situation before her and longs for a better world…and she strives daily to make it a reality. This in turn will help her to lead, delegate, and execute what needs to be done to make her work, church, and community at large a better place.
  • PRICELESS Becoming a woman who embraces her unique voice, and shows up and never gives up, A woman who perseveres through adversity (even when she is alone). Who realizes that she can learn more from her failures than from her success. She does not allow herself to get tangled in her failures or entertain negative self talk. A woman who will be steadfast in retraining her brain to validate women, and see the positive in every woman. She is cognizant that her value is innate and immeasurable.
