S2S Strategy

S2S Strategy was born from the idea that the first half of our lives is generally about how to make a living. But the second half has the promise of being about how to make a life. After years of success in the corporate sector, in the military and in private small business, Leslie decided her next chapter would be about using her skills, knowledge and experiences to enable others, both personally and professionally. The “S2S” in the company name stands for the shifting of focus from success to significance in the lives of others.

Shift of focus
