LaToya Green's engaging and humorous style captivates audiences and introduces listeners to tips and techniques that foster a stronger foundation of purpose. LaToya believes that “inspired people, inspire people” and threads that idea through all of her presentations. Motivated by the “bigness” of life, LaToya encourages people to DO something with the opportunities it provides. Because inspiration can be contagious, LaToya counsels people to set the atmosphere instead of reflecting it by being a thermostat in a world of thermometers.
Her ultimate passion is to empower leaders and social entrepreneurs to chase the goals they set with a refreshed, refined perspective. In her view, personal, social, and professional change happen when you begin to see things in “higher definition”. By observing the dynamic ability of individuals to provoke action in her own life; from the preachers in the pulpit to activists in community politics, she has gleaned from the wisdom of effective leaders. LaToya now seeks to share that wisdom with others through Higher Definition Leadership and Empowerment Coaching.
