About Level 8 Leadership Institute

As a leader you might dream it alone, but you don’t do it alone. Brainstorm the biggest problems faced by civilization and quickly see that no one will be tackling the challenges ahead in isolation - not in any industry, type of business, generation or country. Leveraging partnership synergy is essential for visionaries and business leaders who intend to have impact, influence, and fuel a profitable and purposeful legacy.

Researching the great world leaders, centenarians and 100yr+ family enterprises revealed there are three elements to BEING a legacy: mastery of leadership, partnership, and stewardship. As a professional facilitator and business advisor, Enette works with visionary leaders of small, large and family- and non-family-owned businesses to build capacity and excel in these three critical areas.

We all inherit the good/bad decisions from our predecessors, which is why generational leadership and stewardship of a shared cause are important. Not only do we need to work together to accomplish the impossible (e.g., masterminds, peer groups, forums), we need to be able to do it across generations. A legacy doesn’t belong to the leaders of the past or present; it belongs to the people who benefit from it generations from now.

Dedicated to inspiring world leaders who leave global legacies.

Founded in 2009, the Level 8 Leadership Institute is a private educational organization with students in 7 countries: Canada, USA, Mexico, South Africa, United Kingdom, Sri Lanka, and India.

Researching the great world leaders, centenarians and 100yr+ family enterprises revealed there are three elements to BEING a legacy: mastery of leadership, partnership, and stewardship.

Our courses and resources span three disciplines:
1. The Legacy Leader: Harmony of one mind
2. The Legacy Partner: Harmony of many minds
3. The Legacy Steward: Harmony across generations
