Welcome to (n)Ever a Leader, Inc.

We are an organization with a core mandate to bring positive peace, social justice and progressive change to our communities and our world through ethical and creative leadership (ECL) training. We believe civilians, at various levels in their lives and from many different circumstances, backgrounds and age groups—working together—can turn leadership into a vehicle for catalyzing change. We endeavor to engage underrepresented groups and  build multigenerational coalitions of ethical and creative leaders by offering workshops through a 'no economic barriers' business model.

(n)Ever a Leader, Inc. does not charge fees for workshops, but we do ask each participant to commit to becoming an ethical and creative leader for change. All participants sign a "New World Leader" declaration of assurance--which is a commitment to working on behalf of positive world change.

At (n)Ever a Leader, Inc. our mission is simple: Develop leadership for change that improves the wellbeing of our neighbors whether at home or around the globe.

Human Rights

Human Rights | Rights inherent to all human beings whatever our nationality, place of residence, sex, national or ethnic origin, color, religion, language, or any other status. These rights are all interrelated, interdependent and indivisible.

Positive Peace

Positive Peace | Can be defined as peace with justice for all rather than just an absence of violence. As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. reminded us, "Peace is not only the absence of tension, it is the presence of justice". It is peace with social justice.

Social Justice

Social Justice | The fair and proper administration of laws conforming to the natural law that all persons, irrespective of ethnic origin, gender, possessions, race, religion, etc., are to be treated equally and without prejudice.

Chair of the Board, Sherette Rhodes, presents at the 12th International Conference on Conflict Resolution

Cleveland, Ohio, USA

May 22 – 26, 2018

Sherette Rhodes, Chair of the Board for (n)Ever a Leader, Inc. presented as part of an expert panel at The International Conference on Conflict Resolution Education (CRE). 

The CRE is an interdisciplinary collaboration and research symposium. Presentations focused on innovations in the field of conflict resolution education.

 Ms. Rhodes shared a 90-minute panel with (n)Ever a Leader, Inc. founder, Nancy Pratt. Their panel discussion was on “bridging the divide” through community education. 

Sherette, a former juvenile corrections officer, talked about resolving conflict among incarcerated juveniles by offering additional learning opportunities. 

One of her innovative solutions is a community based experiential learning model led by minorities working in successful, but alternative careers to illustrate breadth of opportunities beyond traditional employment and to showcase community leadership outside of traditional expectations.

Sherette's CRE Power Point presentation is available to view below.

(n)Ever a Leader, Inc. was a proud Co-Sponsor of the conference.

"It is a curious thing, Harry, but perhaps those who are best suited to power are those who have never sought it. Those who, like you, had leadership thrust upon them, and take up that mantle because they must, and find to their own surprise that they wear it well."
