YPO Forums

No wonder Leslie gets mostly 10s.  I’ve worked with lots of O.D. consultants, coaches and trainers and she is simply one of the very best!  I’ve continuously worked with her in my Forums and my business.

YPO is the global platform for chief executives to engage, learn and grow. Members harness the knowledge, influence and trust of the world’s most influential and innovative business leaders to inspire business, personal, family and community impact. YPO forums are small groups peers that meet regularly, in a confidential environment, to exchange ideas and experiences on the issues that matter most to them.

After more than 20 years serving as a YPO Certified Forum Facilitator, Leslie has seen it all. And she gets YPO. She understands the unique challenges that being “at the top” brings. Leslie’s agile style and ever-growing knowledge makes her an exceptional resource for YPO forums and chapters.

Here's a sampling of forum retreats we offer. Contact LCL for a more complete list.


Authenticity: The Key to Building Relationships That Thrive

Authenticity is a unique gift – why be someone else when you are an original? The safety of forum is an exceptional place to explore being our true selves and letting ourselves be known. By  being yourself, while adapting to all situations, you never pretend and are empowered to be constantly authentic.  In this retreat, learn concepts and practices for stepping more fully and powerfully into yourself.  These skills will strengthen your forums, and forum members will learn techniques for deepening all relationships – intimate, business, family and social. Your forum will explore the genesis of conflict, core tenets of emotional intelligence, and techniques for clarifying your feelings, thoughts and want. Gain techniques for managing boundaries, truly listening and managing reactive responses to challenging situations.  The tools you’ll gain in this retreat deepen Forum protocol and provide the basis for effective communication, conflict resolution, giving and receiving feedback, and acute self-awareness.  


Living With Purpose

Success rarely happens by accident. Ninety-nine percent of the time it’s dedication and effort that result in a win. Knowing your true purpose is key to that success, allowing you to take steps to align your life and actions to more effectively fulfill your vision.  Although people may have similar general end goals (e.g. “make a difference” or “create healthy family and community”), no one expresses their purpose, or reaches it, the same way as you. In this highly interactive session, your forum will participate in exercises designed to ignite the process of clarifying personal values, purpose/mission and vision in the following ways:

  • Identify your core values that drive your actions and behavior
  • Clarify your personal mission that guides your actions, providing you with meaning and personal happiness
  • Explore your vision for ideally and fully expressing your purpose
