The Leadership Mastery Institute is comprised of educators who coach professional women of color to rise to their highest level of achievement in leadership and philanthropy. Using the empirical evidence garnered from over 300 coaching sessions with professional women over five years, executive & certified coach, Luz Canino-Baker has tailored this culturally-relevant leadership program to meet the professional development needs of women of color.

The curriculum was also devised under the guidance of Dr. Damary Bonilla-Rodriguez whose doctoral dissertation comprehensively analyzed the profile of Latina leaders across the United States. And, Dr. Michelle Rivera provided insight based on her research of communication and Latina/o media.

Five key tools of a leader



Tapping into each woman’s natural leadership ability we will provide a unique culturally- based curriculum to sharpen her leadership skills.



In the workplace leaders are generally given authority based on position, however the research shows that authority is more than position. We will learn how to use powerful language that will put her in the power seat.



The character of a person speaks volumes. Through a series of self-assessments tools including Emotional Intelligence, Myers Briggs, Influence and Strengthsfinder we will make each woman aware of her professional assets and the value she brings to the workplace. We will also teach her how to maximize the people she leads by tapping into each person’s values and talents.



A Leader’s ability to move people to be their best is a key skill we will drive home via our curriculum. A Leader will be trusted and followed when the ones they lead know that they have their best interest at heart.

Gallup states that only 2 out of 10 play to their strengths every day. That means that 80% are functioning daily in their areas of weakness. Any wonder why survey results show that 68% are disengaged at work. This class will use Strengthsfinder results to identify ways to become the 2 out of 10.
