"A leader is great not because of his or her power but because of his or her ability to empower others" John C. Maxwell”


Lael is passionate about developing leaders, empowering students to think critically, and how to view themselves with an open mindset, unafraid of making mistakes. She is dedicated to helping students succeed in achieving their goals by arming them with skills to carry them to their destinations. Lael’s doctoral dissertation was on change leadership and how to navigate employee resistance through that process.
