Lodestone Leader was founded by Dr. Chris Slaughter, a seasoned leader, coach, and Industrial and Organizational Psychologist with a passion for helping small businesses and non-profit organizations thrive. With 23 years of experience in leadership and coaching roles in the US national defense industry and as a small business counselor, Dr. Slaughter recognized the challenges and opportunities that small businesses and non-profits face during leadership transitions. He realized that many of these organizations lacked the institutional infrastructure to capture and transfer the nuances and complexities of operating a viable and ongoing organization. He also saw the potential of tapping into the collective genius of each organization to unleash its full potential.
Driven by his vision of empowering individuals, teams and organizations to grow and innovate through collaboration, Dr. Slaughter launched Lodestone Leader in 2022. His mission was to provide technical consulting services that help small businesses and non-profits capture, document and optimize their institutional knowledge during leadership transitions. He developed a proven methodology that consists of four phases: analysis, design, optimization and evaluation.
Since then, Lodestone Leader has helped small businesses and non-profits successfully navigate through leadership change and achieve remarkable things together. We are proud of our impact on society and our clients’ testimonials. We are confident that we can help you build a culture of growth and empowerment that preserves and transfers your institutional knowledge. Let us help you transform the way you work together with Lodestone Leader.
