Jesus said to the disciples, "To anyone who has, more will be given and he will grow rich; from anyone who has not, even what he has will be taken away. This is why I speak to them in parables, because 'they look but do not see and hear but do not listen or understand' . . . But blessed are your eyes, because they see, and your ears, because they hear. Amen, I say to you, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it."
- Matthew 13: 12-13; 16-17

About the Founder, Matt Allner
(Motivational Speaking Overview)
Matt Allner founded Leadership & Legacy in 2014 in response to several growing concerns he saw in society, particularly with the family component and with youth all throughout the world and at home here in the United States. Since starting the company in 2014 Matt has seen it grow steadily having provided leadership training for the Boys & Girls Club, for numerous high schools in the Colorado Springs area, and the Salesian Sisters Young Adult Ministry group. He has had consulting contracts with the YMCA to develop and grow their youth sports program, has been the leader of a Men's Ministry Program at his Church by the name of That Man Is You, has been an national level keynote speaker, has worked with various ministry programs within the Colorado Springs Catholic Diocese, and continues to work extensively with school districts across the US to improve the overall school environment from the athletic arena to the classroom. Today Matt now travels throughout the United States and Internationally to speak to church groups, schools, and youth sports organizations as he carries out his ministry work. He was also invited to attend a leadership summit at the Vatican in Rome, Italy in November of 2017 and has been a host on the Fiat Ministry Network and on Colorado Springs Catholic Diocese Bishop Michael Sheridan's radio show where he spoke to the Bishop about the teen suicide crisis in Colorado Springs and his experience on the topic while working as a public educator.
Matt is both an enthusiastic and powerful speaker and consultant with a diverse background of both professional and life experiences that will have you reflecting not only about what matters in life, but will help you discover discernment and to hear God’s call for your discipleship. With the world at such a critical turning point—national and personal debt at an all time high, social pressures and competition in school and in sports higher than they have ever been before for our youth, the multitude of external factors chiseling away at marriages and family dynamics, and with the very real spiritual battle for our souls that is waging, Matt will help you see why there is no better time than now to address these issues with positive and realistic solutions as he sheds a very simple light on how we all can protect our relationships and our children by staying the course on what matters most---loving and serving God. From athletics to public education, marriage to fatherhood, science researcher to entrepreneur, Matt will connect with audiences of all ages in ways that will leave you wanting to hear more and desiring to build a stronger relationship with and serve God more than you ever have before.

Training Program Overview
At Leadership and Legacy we have an uncanny ability to resolve conflict situations in a constructive manner, always motivating others in positive ways to produce consistent results. Our natural sense of humor helps us to keep multiple social balances for mutual benefits. We are fully dedicated to developing others to be their best so they can reach their full potential personally, professionally and relationally in the workplace and in life. While building effective teams with strong, positive, and functional group dynamics is our ultimate goal for organizations, the training services and seminars offered can cover a variety of topics such as workplace harassment, respect for others in the workplace, the positive effects of relationship building, conflict and resolution, and restoring broken fellowship. Our training is designed not only to give individuals better team building skills and insights to make supportive programs within the church more functional, but also to demonstrate how these same skills can improve our lives outside of church - at home with spouses, family, and friends and in the workplace.

What is the overall pulse and climate of your organization and its programs? Are you in need of some re-energizing, positive thinking and application of good attitudes, need a challenging perspective on how to assess yourself more so than others? Leadership & Legacy, LLC will provide you with a refreshing perspective and outlook on your organizational climate as well as an overall re-focusing on life in general. Let us come inspire and motivate your organization and its supportive programs to move to more positive thinking to foster better relationship building and work collaboration.
Consultations can be either one-on-one sessions for personal growth (at work, in personal life, or both) or group/organization-oriented sessions for growth of a group or the entire organization. Both types of sessions are designed to engage the leader/group in thought and conversation to self-assess, plan, and initiate small changes that bring about highly effective and positive results in the day to day approach to working with co-workers, organizing and managing tasks and the necessary allocations, satisfying customers, and overall work effectiveness and efficiency. The self-assessment aspect will become the most effective tool to the leader, as they will find it guiding them to the proper change and in the proper areas of the organization while creating an environment that is more open and soliciting of feedback from others. Consultations are designed to move leaders and groups to the top of Maslow’s Pyramid of Hierarchy, reaching Self-Actualization by transforming the way they think about day to day, and moment to moment interactions with others. Consultations will further help leaders arrive at and sustain the Dynamic Leader status they are truly capable of.
Organizational Leadership Training (Leaders Only)
Leadership training is essential to any and all organizations in that it provides structure and guidance for leaders to learn how to review, apply, and sustain best practices in leading others. This training will engage leaders in a deeper understanding of the psychology of people and the manner in which we all are capable of reaching our full potential in all we do. Training sessions will further explore past historical leadership and group dynamics successes and failures and then transition in a way that will find leaders heavily self-assessing themselves and their role as a leader in an effort to help them identify the areas where their leadership is strong and productive, as well as the areas where it is weak and needs improvement. The overall goal of this training is to help leaders maintain their strengths and minimize their weaknesses while earning the trust and respect of the people they lead on a day to day basis through positive attributes found over time to motivate people to work productively, efficiently, and collaboratively.
Team Dynamics Development / Team Building (Leader with Group)
Team Dynamics have been the focus of many organizations and groups for many centuries now, but more so in the last few decades due to the growing global population, the strain on resources, and the merging of a variety of different markets, among other factors. We are living in a time where innovation is necessary but yet the innovative mind has not been producing as we had hoped. But why? While many analysts and experts have proposed ideas and theories to explain it Maslow’s Pyramid shows us that innovation comes when we arrive at Self-Actualization. Furthermore, research in the area of small group dynamics in Isolated and Confined Extreme (ICE) Environments has provided us with much anecdotal data as have many third party organizations who have been working with Human Resources Departments in an effort to help companies redesign their work groups to help them to be more cohesive. Despite these efforts, workplace interactions are still struggling and work morale is still on the decline as there are strong indications that where this efforts are failing is with the complexity of the measures and assessments they use to provide data to make these changes. Archival data from the last 200 years has shown that some of the best group dynamics have evolved naturally and even so from dysfunctional teams, as the team encountered adversity and stressors that challenged their very survival, forcing them to find a way to look past their differences and work together. These training sessions will help teams (leaders and co-workers) better understand this history, especially where many past and successful civilizations had a strong belief that to know the future and where you are going you have to know the past and where you have been. Through this Team Dynamic Training effort you will see your teams learning and engaging in strategies that help them understand that diversity and differences are actually a benefit in the long-term scale of things when it comes to evolving and innovating for the sake of survival. This training will transform your leaders and their teams into cohesive units functioning with flexible and adaptive styles of leadership throughout the team.
All Staff Group Training (Synergistic Approach)
The All Staff Group Training approach is a bold effort to move the entire organization to synergy and Self-Actualization. Through an interdisciplinary and integrated approach to the Progressive Training Structure, the culmination of all prior trainings received combined with new training insights will help the pieces of the puzzle all fall together for the organization, as the shared vision becomes a positive forward movement for the organization. From here the organization has the ability to transform into a single entity that openly solicits feedback, ideas, and encourages new and innovative solutions to meet the rapidly changing climate of the industry. Furthermore, these training methods will deepen the understanding of how emerging markets impact the organization so that adaptiveness and support become the foundation of helping the organization meet both its short and long-term goals. This training is designed to be fun, interactive, and full of brain storming and relationship building to foster a more cohesive and collaborative culture within the organization.
Online and anonymous surveys will give your organization the insights it needs to make informed decisions with regards to potential changes in how you operate your business on a day to day basis. As trust continues to build through each and every training/coaching encounter so will the honesty of the survey data, which in time will help your organization to make decisions based upon solicitation from employees and empowerment of the synergy that leads to a self-actualized culture at the work place. Assessments that will be offered include: Self Assessments; Leadership Assessments; Team & Organizational Assessments.
