Despite graduating in the top 10% of his high school class, Dr. Green earned a D in the first semester of his college career – almost leading him to drop out. His experience motivated him to develop academic skills that ultimately led to successfully earning a doctorate degree and developed his passion for mentoring students. By integrating leadership skills, soft skills, and academic success skills, Dr. Green empowers students to enhance their academic performance while building career-readiness skills that employers seek.
Prior to starting his own business, Dr. Green spent twenty years teaching, advising, mentoring, and supervising university students. He spent ten years in leadership positions in higher education where he served as director of a college-level recruiting and career center, department chair, and associate dean for academic programs. He taught leadership and academic success classes and received numerous teaching and mentoring awards. He also mentored student leadership development organizations and was influential in the development of a college-level student leadership academy.
