The Leadership Synergy Institute

Welcome to the Leadership Synergy Institute, where we believe that every individual and business has the power to unlock greatness. Our journey is not just about leadership development; it’s about creating a synergy that transforms lives and propels organizations toward enduring success.

Leadership Synergy Institute began with a vision to ignite change and empower leaders to embrace their full potential.

As a professor at the university, Dr. Shade saw some of her best students, who were top in their class, struggle in their careers – frustrated by the inequality in the corporate and business worlds and needed a plan to get ahead in a rigged system without losing themselves.

What started as a desire to help those students excel has evolved into this beautiful life-changing project, as their success stories fueled my passion!
