Exclusive Leadership Virtual Event

Reserve Your Seat Now

The last decade has proven that diversity, equity, and inclusion, are just as much a part of a corporation’s health as it’s profit and loss statement.
Let’s set you up for H.E.A.L.T.H.Y. position in both!
According to the Buffet National Wellness Survey, organizations with highly effective health, productivity, and diversity programs report 11% higher revenue per employee, 1.8 fewer days absent per employee per year, and 28% greater shareholder returns. There have been some major shifts in the world this year and as corporate leaders we have two choices. We can either lead or we can follow. Reading recommended workplace wellness and diversity books is a step in the right direction but falls woefully short of creating change without execution.
It all starts with you.


A must attend workplace wellness event that combines both personal and professional development so that leaders are equipped and empowered to create lasting positive organizational change and performance.

“I have been on work retreats before and I can truly say that this retreat was not at all what I expected. Dr. AMS was engaging and she did her research on what we did on a daily basis, some of the terminology we used and our program’s mission. She brought out all of the good parts and we left out of there feeling invigorated and ready to take on the challenges that are thrown at us. Such the antithesis of what I’ve experienced in the past.”

Virtual (Wherever You Are)


December 17TH – 9AM – 2PM EST
THIS IS NOT just another personal development event.
While individual leadership characteristics play a very vital role in the success of an organization, we will be looking at your specific strengths in terms of how they apply to your organization’s culture for the most impact and productivity.
THIS IS NOT just another organizational development event.

According to a recent Fortune survey only 7% of CEOs believe that their companies are building effective global leaders, and just 10% believe their leadership development initiatives have a clear business impact.

When you take this into consideration against the fact that US companies are spending 160 billion dollars on employee training and education, you have to wonder where the breakdown is.

Our Healthy Leader Inclusion Assessment will provide a specific roadmap on what next steps should be for any deficiencies discovered.

They will review items and receive a roadmap in order to assess where they might have dropped the ball and what can be done differently.

Session 5

The Intersectionality of Trauma A lack of coping skills in dealing with trauma influences many other areas of life. Your organization may not be able prevent what team members have experienced. But if your leadership is equipped with the tools for effective communication, they will have a deeper awareness of who they are and how to better engage with different types of people and behaviors.

Session 6

FINAL WRAP UP In this session participants will check in and confirm what specific solutions they plan to build on and what their next steps will be.
“Dr. Shuttlesworth brings a unique style to the table. I appreciated the questions that she asked, which helped to customize our session. Since we were a blend of newer and more seasoned board members, she first facilitated a discussion that helped us to get to know one another better, and then we moved into the diversity discussion. I have never seen our board members so forthcoming, a testament to Dr. Shuttleworth’s ability to create a safe place for people to share. Her “HEALTHY” strategy is the perfect tool to create an easy-to-remember, executable plan. I highly recommend Dr. Shuttlesworth to any team looking to roll their sleeves up and get to work on becoming a more “woke” organization.”

You and your organization deserve to experience what is on the other side of creating change. Pursuing equity won’t always be easy, but it will surely always be worth it.

NO MORE information without transformation. NO MORE vague theory without personal application. NO MORE inclusion and diversity practices that are standard operating procedures on paper and nowhere else. As the members of your organization are having to focus on their responsibilities both at home and at work, the media is constantly reminding them about police brutality, racial injustice, protests, political drama, civil unrest and COVID 19. In no uncertain terms, organizations that choose to operate with transparency, authenticity, and intentionality during these times will be the ones recognized for spearheading sustainable change.
