Our out-of the-ordinary programs are designed to create a unique experience for participants, so that they can be reminded of who they really are and, in doing so, to feel called to transform into the best version of themselves.

As such, the seeds are planted for their highest levels of productivity, focus, fulfillment and joy.

Forget been-there, done-that presentations that are not only boring…but painfully ineffective. Colleen brings her signature spunky style to liven up her audience and keep them engaged.

Participants won’t be zoning out on their phones, nodding off in their seats, or counting down the minutes until they can finally zip out the door.

Every one of Colleen’s programs blends her own wisdom and expertise with the most current, up-to-the-minute info your participants need to make a lasting impact in both their personal and professional lives.

The we can’t change because this is the way we’ve always done it mentality makes Colleen cringe every time she hears it. She wants to empower audiences to step outside of worn-out mentalities into a life and a path far more fulfilling and productive.

She loves inspiring people with her sense of humor, willingness to be open about own vulnerabilities, and by sharing her own real-life stories to show participants how they too, can indeed find the freedom and joy that they crave.

Colleen’s goal is to educate and inspire her audience to take that bold move…and to enjoy greater levels of impact and fulfillment.


As a speaker, Colleen Slaughter engages the audience with her natural talents for motivating people and planting the desire for positive change within themselves. Her vast experience in business and industry allows her to speak authoritatively on leadership, organization development, change management, and a variety of related topics.

Colleen is dedicated to steering emerging leaders to attain the clarity, structure and self-confidence needed to realize higher levels of success and fulfillment in their personal and professional lives. She is a proven coach with a remarkable ability to guide clients in overcoming self-doubts and dissatisfactions in their lives and businesses.

Many assume Colleen was raised in a well-to-do family and groomed for an international life. Instead, she grew up in a single-parent, low income household in Kentucky. Her path to becoming a leader for women became clear at an early age. Nicknamed “Miss Independent”, she always knew she wanted to be “the boss”.

She moved to Paris at the age of 21 – hardly speaking the language -and with no money in her pocket.  She stayed for 13 years and built a successful life. Formerly a secretary, she was accepted to a globally top-ranked bilingual MBA program.  She continued taking bold actions – landing two global consulting positions. Others took notice – and Colleen eventually found herself in a rewarding new role – mentoring women.

Guests share how Colleen’s presentation had a positive impact: Colleen’s dynamic experience makes her stand out among the rest.

Her international focus allows her to serve the widely developing market of emerging International leaders who are making their way around the world. Her proprietary BOLDER system is designed to offer the structure, clarity and self-confidence necessary to achieve alignment with true talents and desires.

Inspiring Other to Follow You: Defining Your Leadership Style

In the last month, have any of these thoughts streamed through your head?

  • I get frustrated as I watch other people get the great gigs. I’m always left wondering why that isn’t happening for me, too.
  • People tell me that I am not powerful enough, that I am too soft as a leader. But I don’t know what to do about it – how do I claim my power?

Just how do you define your own leadership style?

2. Defining your personal leadership style: It isn’t enough to know the basics of different leadership styles – once you define the leader you want to become, you must commit to becoming aligned with your own values and ultimately, to making a difference in this life.

3. Smart strategies for getting there: Now that you have more knowledge about top leadership styles and you’ve established a foundation for defining the leader you personally want to become, what’s next? Strategies! We’ll talk all about the smart tips and tools you can implement to become more of a leader others will be inspired to follow.

This comprehensive presentation covers a lot of material, starting with a look at the all-too-familiar “technical” leadership style of the late 20th century, then transitioning into a deep analysis of “adaptive” leadership styles. Why? Because that is where it is proven that you can be the most effective as a Leader.

If you’re ready to define your personal leadership style, Colleen’s engaging presentation is the foundation you need to help you get there.
