Our Mission… "We provide a supportive and positive learning experience in which members are empowered to develop communication and leadership skills, resulting in greater self-confidence and personal growth."
We meet … every Wednesday at 6:30 a.m. at Cal Lutheran Center for Entrepreneurship in Westlake Village. We end at 7:45 a.m. We are all ages, many cultures, professions, and interests. We have lots of fun, are amazingly affable, and face the fear of public speaking head on!

Overcoming Barriers to Empowerment
Leading well is not about enriching yourself-it's about empowering others. Only empowered people can reach their potential. When a leader can't or won't empower others, he creates barriers within the organization that followers cannot overcome. When leaders fail to empower others, it is usually due to three main reasons:

A desire for job security.
Resistance to change.
Lack of self-worth.
The truth is that empowerment is powerful not only for the person being developed but also for the mentor. Enlarging others makes you larger. It is an impact you can experience as a leader as long as you are will to believe in people and give your power away.
