Leslie Tucker defines culture change as successful only if it is sustainable. To this end she developed “Train the Trainer” programs -- programs that certify internal coaches who transfer Leslie’s knowledge into applicable, sustainable working practices throughout each organization and into the future.
Ms. Tucker has also worked extensively in the government and non-profit sectors. Working on behalf of the Institute for Sustainable Communities, she has trained leaders of NGOs in Ukraine, China, Macedonia, Georgia and the United States to build internal and external relationships based in partnership. Her work in Moldova with the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC); an innovative and independent U.S. foreign aid agency leading the fight against global poverty, helped create a powerful vision between the U.S. agency and local foreign teams.
