About us Effective Leadership Academy (ELA) began when Founder and Executive Director Flo Brett recognized the struggle of new corporate professionals who were expected to assume leadership positions, but lacked the necessary skills. In response, Brett developed and led an intensive adult leadership-training program with outstanding results. Brett then went on to identify a significant gap in student leadership training in middle and secondary schools. Taking lessons learned and successes from her corporate curricula, Brett adapted it to serve the needs of students in grades 5-12, college students and educators to ensure they received essential life-skills education during their most formative years. The concept of training young people, and those who impact the lives of young people, with essential life skills led to the creation of ELA in 2008. Since its inception, ELA’s expert trainers have provided tens of thousands of students and professionals from throughout Northeast Ohio with custom designed and award-winning programs that turn potential into performance. ELA’s interactive programs focus on the development and enhancement of critical soft-skills and give youth the tools they need to succeed in the 21st Century. And, most importantly, our staff and facilitators are dedicated to each student we serve.
