Our Partnership Creates Impact

Get the best strategy for your organization. Not the strategies others use. Or think you need to copy. Our tailored approach starts with understanding your needs and the results you want for growth. Because when we put your goals and our experience in the same room, great things can happen.

So why trust us? Executive Leadership Consulting, or ELC, brings only the best of the best practices to the table. When it comes to business, we’ve seen it all: From successful startups to Fortune 100 companies around the world. We’ve seen time and again that true leadership means creating alignment and integration – in all levels of the organization. Without it, even the biggest firms can crumble.

That’s why our CEO, Sonya Shelton, founded ELC. She combined her more than 25 years’ experience as an executive in a variety of industries with her leadership philosophy to create the pragmatic and multidimensional approach of Red Thread Leadership™.

Our WHY is all about making an impact. Our clients trust us to be their #1 partner to ensure they are aligned on their purpose, strategy, and culture. We love helping them exponentially grow their business and its people. They often tell us, “Wow, we didn’t even know this was possible when we started!”

Our success is defined by your success.

Our Purpose

We co-create exponential growth for companies around the world by aligning purposeful strategy and passionate culture that impacts their businesses, their people, and their communities.

Our Values

As Seen On...

We know how to make change that lasts

We start with where you are

To make lasting change, we know we have to take what you’ve already done and make it more effective. We’ll bring together the best of what you’ve done with our best practices and experience to create a customized solution. That way, we can work together to create alignment and buy-in throughout the process to ensure you get long-lasting results.

We guide you through the process

We will be there at the end. In other words, we’d never come in, recommend a bunch of changes, and then leave you to figure out what to do with it or how to sustain it.


Executive Leadership Consulting was founded by CEO Sonya Shelton to help organizations like yours get crystal clear about your vision, communicate it so it resonates with each person in a way that inspires them, and align the entire organization to make it a reality.
