Dear New Student-Candidate:
Congratulations on your admission to Catapult Leaders, and welcome to this incredible community of learning and taking action. I am thrilled that we will have the opportunity to begin this exciting journey together. During my time as a leader, manager, mentor, and coach of young adults and young professionals, I have seen amazing growth based on challenges made and challenges met — as talented people are pushed to become more thoughtful and more impactful.
In this time before you get deep into the Catapult Leaders program, I write to share my thoughts with you about the community you are about to enter, and the changes you are set to make.
As you think about the professional future you’d like to create for yourself, I want to assure you that there is no limit to what you can get from the Catapult Leaders experience – as long as you commit to the sometimes-difficult task of changing yourself for the better. While it might be easy to continue familiar patterns in this new space, I’d like to remind you that your past does not define you – for good or otherwise.
I challenge you with a question I put to all who chase big goals with me:
“How Great Do You Want To Be?”
With Catapult Leaders, you will author your own story, and in the process, you will help write your chapter of the great American story.
When you get deeper in the Catapult Leaders program, you will find that we seek to help you take your capabilities to heights you might have once thought unimaginable. In order for such personal growth to happen, you must be open to the new way, the – at times – uncomfortable approach, and have a relentless focus on success in pursuit of your best self. What you put into Catapult Leaders is what you will get out. When this happens, you will be at your best.
Catapult Leaders seeks to prepare you, as a Student-Candidate, for a world full of opportunity by implementing a developmental experience that is authentic and based on the lessons learned by those who have been there and done that.
“The world wants the best from you. Do you want the best from the world?”
As you move through Catapult Leaders’ unique Personal Growth Potential Assessment™ and Career Catapult Development & Success Program™, I look forward to having discussions with you about your progress and your vision for your future.
I know that by working together, we can positively shape your future, increase your professional opportunities, up-level our communities, and further brighten Black America’s bright future.

Founder & CEO of Catapult Leaders
