THE NEXT GENERATION OF LEADERS
"The Center embodies all that I believe is critical to a leader’s personal success: investing in oneself, physically, spiritually and emotionally. Investing in oneself through the power of community and sharing. Having the ability to learn from adversity and overcoming fear of failure. For me, helping the Center and our next generation understand this is extremely important to me."
"Mentors have played a critical role in my life. I see enormous opportunity to give that gift that I received to our next generation through the Center. I truly do. Every interaction with the Center reinforces authenticity and world class, leading edge young professionals all of whom have the potential to change the world. I am really honored to help shape the lives of these young people."
"For me there is nothing more important than being part of developing our next generation leaders. It is these young people that will shape the future of business, government, nonprofits and education. At the Center for Conscientious Leadership, we believe there is a huge need to support our young people on their leadership journey. I believe deeply in CCL’s mission and am honored to be part of the team."

"Our next generation leaders may be our greatest natural resource. I can think of few things more important than supporting their development. The Center for Conscientious Leadership is bringing a team, resources and a passion for serving these young people that is inspiring. I’m all in.”
"It took me lots of years and many mentors to finally get to know myself. Being a part of the Center, I can help our next generation shorten that time frame."
"I was lucky to have the help and advice from so many incredible leaders who gave their time and energy to help our team succeed. I want to pay that help forward however I can. We need more great leaders in this world. And I can think of no better organization than the Center for Conscientious Leadership to help make this happen. The leadership team and Forum Members are truly inspiring to me."
"While many of us evolve to realizing that how we spend our time is more important than how we spend our money, I believe that our energy is an even more precious human resource than time. To live a generative life, creating more energy in people than I consume, is critical to leading myself and others. Creating positive energy has become my highest intention and an offer to others to join in building a community committed to doing so, separately and together, each in our own way. I believe this is more than an aspiration. It is a tangible, attainable goal, one that we can feel and touch energetically. I have committed my time and the next chapter of my life to elevate this work. The young professionals at the Center are extraordinary and helping them in their leadership journey is an inspiration to me."
"The Center is a unique and powerful community for young professionals to start “knowing thyself”. The movement has just begun and I’m proud to be part of the effort."
"I am grateful I began my career in the military where I was surrounded by individuals who believed in servile leadership and a higher cause. I am indebted to this experience. I believe CCL can help provide the tools we all need to lead in times of success, but perhaps more importantly, explore ways to be stalwart, unwavering examples of leadership during those moments of doubt and uncertainty. That’s when we learn the most about ourselves, and when leadership is needed the most. This is why CCL is so important to our future leaders, and why I am so committed to CCL."
"Why am I so involved in The Center? It is a unique community. I have seen its power of inspiring young professionals and also seen amazing bonds of support and friendship develop. It’s a great match with my own mission."
"During my career, I developed a deep conviction in the ability of young people to change our world for the better. The Center is a tremendous values-based community where I can contribute my coaching and mentorship."
"I want to stand with the hungriest and most capable young people: in an overstimulated world with few role models and share their lives as well as a few lessons learned. I did not start CCL because I believe I am a great leader. I am just on a journey of trying to be a better leader each day. But through a long career, I developed deep friendships with many leaders who are uniquely gifted and purposeful…and passionate about mentoring young people. The need seemed so great and the passion of these leaders was so inspirational that in 2016, we founded the Center for Conscientious Leadership."
