Welcome to the Vellamo Leadership Institute

A community of confident, decisive, resilient, authentic, badass leaders

Vellamo's mission is to bring together professionals who want to be more effective leaders, so we can learn together, build a network of support, expand our influence, and have successful and fulfilling careers. Today's workplace is very different than it was just a few decades ago. There are people from multiple cultures and backgrounds from five generations working together who all have different communication styles, values, motivations, and strengths. We help people become better leaders by teaching them the mindsets, skills, and other attributes needed to connect with themselves and with those they lead, to create a positive and productive culture, and achieve fantastic results for their organizations.

Leadership is not just about a job title. It's about stepping up and making a difference! You don't have to be in the C-Suite or own your own business to step up and make a positive impact on your workplace, your community, and your family. Join the Vellamo community! Invest your time in your career and your future!

Vellamo Book Club

The October book is How Women Rise by Sally Helgesen & Marshall Goldsmith. An iconic book in leadership circles is What Got You Here Won't Get You There by Marshall Goldsmith. It explores the bad habits that people need to break in order to get to the next level in their careers. However, after publishing the book, Goldsmith realized that many of the habits described were possessed primarily by men. So he teamed up with Sally Helgesen to identify the habits that hold back women professionals. This book is the result.

Join us in the Vellamo community portal on Monday, October 23rd at 6pm ET/3pm PT to discuss the book and which habits you need to break.

Artificial Intelligence, or AI, is changing the business world at a breakneck pace. I want to share some of the basics I recently learned about how to utilize Chat GPT, including the best practices of prompting.

Join us in the Vellamo community portal on Tuesday, September 26th at 7pm ET/4pm PT to get familiar with this revolutionary technology.
