Who We Are

The Leadership Science Institute, LLC (LSI) is a people development company. We started in 2009 with the idea of helping others succeed. LSI began with one coach who set out to share his executive experiences with others and guide them to success. LSI has since evolved into the "whole person" people development center we are today.

We became the first company to offer a one stop shop for people development. With the integration of skills assessments and training, blended with coaching, we can target professional and personal development needs for each individual, team and organization.

Our #1 Job... Is Your Success

LSI offers a team of experienced career coaches. Each coach has their certification and has completed our rigorous training process to ensure they are ready to guide you on your professional journey. We love our jobs, and our goal is for you to love yours too.
