The Mission of the Authentic Leadership Foundation is to build the strong leaders we need.

We call these leaders Truth Seekers.

We Have Truth Seekers Programs for Youth, Educators, and Adults. In a series of trainings you learn how to build leadership strength that’s character-based.

What Can TRUTH Seekers Do?

  • Communicate their mission and obstacles.

  • Make consistent decisions and explain ‘why’ successfully every time. No one cares about knowledge and experience. They want principled decisions.

  • Distinguish between important words such as mission, vocation & integrity and how they work together to help them lead.

  • Examine their day and adjust quickly for better results.

  • Measure service & greatness for themselves with the help of an authentic feedback loop of those that love them and will speak the truth.

  • Achieve their potential and have a great impact on those they serve.

How Do We Do It?

We train on the language, process, and metrics of 10 core success habits.

  • Training Module 1: train on fundamental leadership strength training success habits.
  • Training Module 2: trains on enhanced leadership strength training success habits.
  • Training Module 3: focuses on advanced leadership strength training.

One Last Quick Message from Darren Smith...

WHAT NEXT? You START by Seeking the TRUTH.

Without a clear understanding of Truth, one cannot lead. People and organizations cannot grow or flourish. That’s why the Authentic Leadership Foundation has created the TRUTH Seekers Leadership Series.

The first two, half-day workshops are the keys to authentic leadership and decision making. The other workshops, completed over two semesters, deepen your ability to execute and lead.

In this three-hour workshop, you’ll define your potential in character-based terms, understand your God-given temperament, and identify and move toward your mission and purpose.
