Certify as an SLG Mentor

This program is for seasoned leaders to sharpen their holistic approach to mentoring.


This is your opportunity to share your hard-earned wisdom and develop the next generation of courageous leaders. The SLG Mentors Certification prepares seasoned leaders of character to walk alongside our fellows throughout their SLG journey. Our mentors are life-long learners who desire to give back through mentorship.

Our leadership perspective is grounded in three basic precepts that set the foundation for cultivating emotionally healthy leaders who serve their teams.

the three precepts

Leadership and Followership

Leadership and followership are defined by character and are relational in nature.



Character is shaped by a timeless and transcendent set of core virtues.


Courageous Leadership

Selfless courage and service to others is not a style of leadership, but learned behavior.
