Is THIS Our Legacy to Our Kids?

  • Entitlement...not Responsibility
  • Feelings....not Facts
  • Ego...not God

How did we get here?

More importantly, how do we change course?

The World Needs AUTHENTIC Leaders.

We watch billions of dollars wasted every year on “Leadership Lip Service”: programs in education and business that produce no results, because they treat leadership like a technique. It’s not.

Rather, Authentic Leadership is first about CHARACTER - which is the power to MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICES. Without this foundation, our young people will fail, doomed to a life of mediocrity and misery.

Building CHARACTER in Our Young People is what the Authentic Leadership Foundation is all about.

Formally established in June 2021, the Authentic Leadership Foundation uses training and development models successfully implemented in private business over the past 25 years. The foundation’s purpose is to help young people capture WHO they are, fulfill their BEST SELF, and create BETTER RESULTS in their responsibilities, relationships, and their lives.

Our Approach

By partnering with schools and other community-based organizations, we have developed a step-by-step process that helps youth form their character, and to create an “Personal Best Plan.” Then, they can use it throughout their lives so they can become and stay their best selves. In doing so, they help others around them to do the same.

1 - Identify TRUTH

A young person must first recognize that there is an objective truth about life and right and wrong, that exists completely detached from their own personal feelings or opinions.

2 - Discover FREEDOM.

The Truth sets us free...and with this freedom comes the opportunity to discover one’s purpose, set worthy goals and lay the path to become their best self!


We know an airplane is “off course” most of the time, yet constantly adjusting to reach its destination. So too must young people learn from the feedback of their peers and mentors to reach their goals.

Beginning in the Dallas region, this approach will transform the youth of our nation into true, character-driven authentic leaders for their communitiesorganizations and families.

The Time is NOW.

When you join us, you will be actively supporting our youth education programs. As our past work in business, these programs are very specific in their objectives with measurable deliverables and outcomes. But we can’t do it without education partners and investors. As our nation corrects its course, you will be actively and enthusiastically helping to transform our young people into true, character-driven authentic leaders.
