Lee & Patrick

Lee & Patrick met around a backyard fire circle.

Recognizing each other as kindred spirits they partnered in a myriad of ways. From executive coaching and team consulting to community building and a shared passion for conscious end-of-life practices, Lee & Patrick have been building mutual respect and trust for years.

As co-founders of the Relational Leadership Academy, their creative collaboration was born out of their common interests in intentional approaches to organizational management, fun and play in the workplace, and relatedness in all areas of life. 

Lee & Patrick are committed to the sacred work of supporting high vibration workplaces and powerfully emerging leaders. They plan to do that through the mediums of joy, play, beauty, abundance, and win/win contexts.
