Technology has changed the way we live, work and communicate. It is time to change the way we lead. After 20+ years as Executive Coach, Dr. Cynthia Howard recognized that leaders needed different experiences  than the traditional training, in order to engage their true potential and learn new ways to engage their staff. The Work SMART Club was developed to provide a combination of live events, Innovation (learning) Labs and online experiences to bring out the best in leaders.


We unleash the potential in leaders through transformational experiences.


Transform the workplace through authentic and inspired leadership.


Excellence. Authenticity. Creativity. Bold. Success.
