Where Great Teams & Leaders Are Forged

The Mettle Foundry is a leadership development center built on the idea that true leadership is unfinished, rough, and beautifully flawed. We expose your professional flaws and strengths to refine and fortify your authentic mettle as an individual or team.

Mettle /ˈmedl/
vigor and strength of spirit or temperament; staying quality

The Mettle Foundry leadership development center takes a customized approach: expose the flaws, get to the natural beauty of the material, and sand and polish as needed.

Put another way: it’s our mission to give it to you straight. We’ll celebrate what’s working, figure out what’s not working, and help you nail down strategies to bridge the gaps.

But what is a leadership development center, exactly? More specifically, how can a leadership development center work for you?
