Developing The Next Generation of Leaders
Leadership Development and Coaching Program for High-Potential BIPOC Employees
Attract, Develop, & Retain Talent
Discover Hidden Talent
Tap Into Your Greatest Asset: Your People
Many CEOs and business owners know the research. Diverse teams are more innovative, they’re more engaged, and they generate more revenue.
But to reap those rewards, companies have to do more than just hire a more diverse workforce.
Inclusion efforts must make sure that BIPOC employees feel a sense of belonging, are treated respectfully, and have opportunities to perform, develop, and advance.
Many BIPOC employees feel marginalized by their employers and colleagues. The irony is that the value of an inclusive environment is the access to different thought processes, different life experiences, and different points of view.
We Believe That
Diversity Isn’t Just A Metric To Reach
Representation, inclusion and broadening access to opportunities is actually an integral part of developing a strong brand, a successful corporate culture and revenue generation.
Unfortunately, most businesses just don’t have the time or resources to close the capability gap and provide personalized support to high-potential BIPOC employees.
Our Program develops strong BIPOC leaders and supports leaders by helping them create a more inclusive environment to support those employees.
Our 12-Month Program will
Turn Potential Into High-Performance
Accelerate the progression of early to mid level BIPOC leaders in your organization

"It has been an absolute honor and privilege to work alongside Lonnie Brewer. His passion, expertise, and commitment to excellence is second-to-none. Lonnie has been a trusted advisor, an objective sounding-board, a mentor, executive coach, valued consultant, and a friend. Humble, yet unapologetic, a man of high standards yet patient with others, and a big picture thinker and leader who took time to understand our business and the value of incremental goal achievement. The results included the business overcoming nearly a million-dollar deficit, that lingered for several years. We grew the operating budget by $1.6 million, and grew our liquidity by $2.5 million, while reducing our debt to less than $100,000. Frankly, Lonnie Brewer is the real deal!"

His feedback and questions are shared in such a genuine way, that you feel empowered and at ease on the journey of development."

"Lonnie Brewer’s approach to coaching brought immediate benefits to me. He is a sincere and easily approachable advisor and I felt at ease with him very quickly in our relationship. He has an ability to listen and then boil down issues into relatable stories and experiences which help to get to the heart of the matter and to make progress. He speaks from his heart and genuinely tries to help others be their best. He helped me see leadership as not just about my job but about being human and living with integrity. As a female finance leader in a technology company, Lonnie was instrumental at helping me navigate unique, sometimes difficult situations, and be more strategic in my thinking. When I was evaluating career opportunities, he helped me reflect on my own needs and goals to make the right decisions for my career and my life.

"I have worked with Lonnie for a number of years as an executive coach, consultant, and trusted advisor. Lonnie helped me to build an effective global talent strategy and a high performing leadership team during a time of business transformation. Later, Lonnie and I partnered again, where he was exceedingly instrumental in helping to develop an employee resource group from a group of passionate advocates, focused on articulating to senior leaders why the hiring, retention and advancement of diverse slates would add value to the organization. We were highly successful! Lonnie’s ability to listen, build trust and communicate difficult subjects effectively in a graceful manner was a significant differentiator and made him an unquestionably gifted executive coach and consultant. I am fortunate that I partnered with Lonnie throughout this journey and enthusiastically recommend him as an executive coach and consultant.”

Lonnie worked with me and helped me strategize to better leverage my strengths to meet the moment successfully. Working with Lonnie has been immensely helpful, rewarding, and inspiring. His passion and optimism are both infectious and motivating. Lonnie is a talented executive coach who combines great listening with powerful and insightful questions. He encourages self awareness of the values you bring while also addressing the need to dig deep to explore new approaches and ideas that would work with your leadership skills. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to achieve their goals in life and work!”
