About me

So … what do I do…

I am in the leadership business. More specifically, I help smart, ambitious, hard-working people be good leaders.

Nancy Dailey, Ph.D.Leaders are busy people. They learn while they do. I offer tools and processes to accelerate leadership development in a realistic, applied way. It could be a custom app, a video, a podcast, a text or a phone call that nudges leaders to do the right thing.

Labels that work for me …

Entrepreneur, corporate executive, management consultant, small business owner, mother of three, wife of one, small horse farm owner, sociologist, award-winning author, lifetime tech learner, social media aficionado, and alumni of Springboard Enterprises (2001).
