Today, I’m excited to announce that I have joined the board of a startup called Leadr. I will assume the role of Executive Chairman, helping to set and shape the strategic direction for this young software company.
When I stepped down from my CEO role at Pushpay in May of 2019, I was fortunate to be able to spend more time with my family. What an incredible blessing they are. And after taking this much appreciated reprieve from the rigors of startup life, I’m eager and ready for the next big challenge - leadership development software.
What is the plan for the future? With an initial captial raise of $1.8m and a strong core leadership team, we are well positioned for growth and plan to launch publicly soon. In addition, I’ll be helping to lead another round of funding, which is set to close before the end of the year.
I’m especially excited for what we’re building at Leadr because of the potential impact. When I speak with executives and organizational leaders, the common sentiment I hear centers around the challenges with finding the right people, developing these people and having enough new leaders to handle the future growth and responsibilities. I believe we can solve that problem.
In short, Leadr is a new kind of people management software which enables one to one leadership development at scale within an organization. We do this by coming alongside existing management activities, like the one to one meeting, and making them more effective, personalized, and trackable. This leads to real people development all managed in one simple and easy to use place.
While we are still pre-launch, I encourage you to follow along by joining our newsletter list or by reaching out to our team to get a demo of the platform.
We’re on a very important mission to create and develop leaders and I couldn’t be more excited to join the team.
