Our leadership development model teaches leaders to become the authentic leaders people will follow. Upon a foundation of authentic leadership, we give leaders the knowledge and skills they need to lead. This is our Authentic Leadership model: Engage, Enlist, Equip, Empower.
Mentoring is the vehicle that will help your organization make the following transformations:
Disconnected, unmotivated employees → dynamic, engaged team members
Conflicting, ineffective organizations → synergistic, productive teams
Our services equip individuals with the skills they need for successful mentoring relationships. We guarantee that if people use our 5 Skills of Mentoring, relationships will be effective.
Mentor Leadership Team's 3G approach provides a solution for organizations who seek to address interpersonal conflict and maximize organizational impact by working across differences. The 3G's are the three primary interpersonal differences that often lead to unproductive conflict and under-realized potential: generational distinctions, global diversity and gender differences.
Innovation is the necessary ingredient for any company that hopes to keep up with the quickly developing global market. A key ingredient for innovation is collaboration. We can teach you the steps you can take to move your team from under-performing to collaborative and highly effective.

Amanda Dreher, JD
CHIEF CREATIVE OFFICER
Years ago, when Amanda first met Liz, they began dreaming of what would one day be MLT. Amanda was fueled by a passion to see organizations appreciate and tap into the incredible potential of their unique individuals.
Since then Amanda has been the creative mind behind MLT’s resources. Her approach to audio, visual, written and live communication is to provide entertaining and informative content that leaves the audience feeling compelled to change. Amanda’s belief that you should laugh, learn and leave changed has given her an edge when it comes to content creation, production and delivery. And, has made her a successful trainer, author of numerous articles and co-host of MLT’s radio show and podcast, M.A.D. (Mentoring Across Differences).
When she’s not at work with MLT, Amanda is passionate about her volunteer work with organizations that empower women, children and families to step more fully into their purpose and potential. Otherwise you can find her in the great outdoors with her husband and two young daughters or making a mess in some new creative project or activity.

His experience as both an HR and Operations executive in multi-national, multi-million/billion dollar organizations in several sectors gives George a unique perspective that helps make MLT the results oriented company we are. Not only does he have a passion for the people in an organization, but for the success of the organization as a whole. This makes him an excellent speaker, instructor and consultant for our clients.
In addition to his work with MLT, George is President of his own consulting service focusing on HR strategies and solutions. You can always find George in the midst of an adventure or listening to his latest musical discovery.
Years ago when Marsha and Liz worked together in sales, they couldn’t have imagined that they would one day work together to transform corporate cultures. Today Marsha brings to MLT a passion for helping leaders who recognize a need for mentoring but have no idea how to do it, by equipping them with the tools they need to see long-term transformation.
Marsha is a true leader and sets an example for all of us in her selfless, humble attitude and her high standards for ethics and hard work. She challenges us all to continue to raise the bar. Additionally, Marsha has a unique way of seeing and making connections between people which has given her an ability to bridge gaps between gender, generational and global differences. As a result, Marsha brings great perspective and guidance to MLT’s client facing strategies.
Outside of MLT, Marsha jumps at the chance to spend time in the garden and in the majestic mountains of Colorado. Some of Marsha’s favorite time is that spent with her husband, family and grandchildren.

“Simplifying the complex. Creating value in people. Leading with passion. These are qualities that keep bringing our diverse, national group back to Liz Selzer for her expert professional services. Clear, concise, intelligent communication is always Dr. Selzer’s leading card. She is a subject matter expert we rely on heavily in developing our nationwide mentoring project.”

"We hired Liz to develop & facilitate a training session for our mentees & mentors, as we launched a pilot mentoring program at Newalta. Feedback from all attendees was extremely positive in terms of content, flow, & duration. They say that a picture paints a 1,000 words, & Liz certainly takes advantage of this through the numerous varied real life stories she tells to make a point. She’s very well informed, a terrific presenter, & all around “good people” to work with. ﾠWe liked her so much we hired her to provide a one-hour presentation via webinar to employees across Canada & the US. The topic was the differences between mentoring, coaching, sponsorship, & managing... We’ll hire her again."
– Marina Franco
Director of Procurement, Newalta Corporation
“Liz is a dedicated, responsive teacher/trainer who’s passion comes across to everyone she works with. She doesn’t just teach rules, but by example motivates leaders to become better leaders.ﾠ Perhaps her greatest skill is to help non-leaders become leaders. I know from testimonies that many students felt she showed them how they were already leaders in their professional and personal lives."
– Kevin Storatz
Director/Center Coordinator, Colorado Christian University
“Liz is continuously focusing on the importance of mentoring and its applications which are necessary activities to enable individuals to be successful in developing and fulfilling their dreams.ﾠ With my experience in life, except for an understanding of proper mentoring activities, there is no other active process that enables individuals to properly understand what they are doing to successfully move forward. Liz is an educated and intelligent mentoring resource and activator. I see on a regular basis that mentoring education and development for others is a very large part of her entire life.”
– Richard E. Caruso,ﾠPh.D.

Ernst & Young Entrpreneur of the Year 2006
"Liz is a professional with a heart for the people she trains; she is extremely adaptable in both business settings and in casual smaller group situations. While in China with my leadership team, it was quite evident that the people Liz trained, learned the principles of mentoring and responded and interacted with great energy!"
– Peggy Sperling
Director of Women's Connections, Global Partners in Hope
"Liz has an energy about her that really puts itself forward in a positive way. When you hear her speak she is captivating, motivating, and keeps the audience engaged. I HIGHLY !!! recommend Liz for any type of leadership training, and life coaching that you may want either personally or professionally."

"M.A.D. Radio gets into topics in a thoughtful manner. Dr. Liz and Amanda, you guys are doing a great job and are covering substantial things. I really enjoy the message you have to give. Liz, you are all over the world trying to change hearts and minds. It is important work. I hope the workplace appreciates it as much as I do. It's critical."
– Tim Danahey,ﾠMBA

"MLT was a picture-perfect fix when we were looking for a motivational presenter for our company’s Woman’s Initiative for Networking and Success (WINS) group. Liz worked closely with our WINS board in order to tailor her presentation to our desired theme. The event was empowering and received excellent ratings from the attendees.
I would recommend MLT’s expertise to business professionals in organizations big and small. I will not hesitate to utilize them again in the future."
