Christa Williams, Executive Director of Sophia Foundation
Christa has more than 25 years of executive leadership experience in corporate, non-profit and educational organizations. Her work with the Sophia Foundation has led her to be an educator where she is creating and facilitating leadership development and community learning programs that “engage and ignite potential.

"I believe that each person has gifts and strengths to serve the world. When leaders empower others to use those gifts and strengths, it unleashes potential in others, leads to collaborative work environments and fosters a servant’s heart."


Sophia's intent:

To activate caring leaders to serve and lead...

"...do those serve as persons; do they while being served, become healthier, wiser, freer, more autonomous, more likely themselves to become servants? And, what is the effect on the least priviledged in society; will he/she benefit or, will he/she, not be further deprived?"

Robert Greenleaf


The Sophia Leadership Learning Circle is based on this Robert Greenleaf's quote and best test. Using this quote as the foundation for learning, additional resources and information are used to support the learning practices helpful in developing caring leadership as individuals, as organizations and in community.
