Your Leadership Strategist

Tessie Watts, M.S., CEO/Founder

I am the Founder and Principal Leadership Strategist of The Leadership Haven Resource Center, LLC; an innovative training and development organization that is committed to turning leaders into the Positive “Change Agents” they are called to be. 

Some may say that I am relentless in my efforts to reach and empower as many Leaders as possible; believing there is no Leader alive that can’t benefit from my “No-Holds” Barred training style that promotes Transparency, Truth and Self-Awareness. 


I provide strategic coaching and training services to leaders and businesses across multiple sectors. My expertise lies in strategic leadership; which I define as "leadership that is deeply rooted in restraint-removing strategies that promote a new level of Leadership Excellence". 

Why Us?

Leadership Development is key—that’s why when it comes to our services, our push is always to get Leaders to a place where they are comfortable with expressing their strategic vision for themselves, their organizations, and their communities.
