Potent Possibilities




PureRising is a professional development group with a “growth mindset” approach to life and leading.

Our purpose and mission is to be a contributor in developing massive growth spurts in people and inside the workplace. We partner with organizations and not-for-profits providing leadership development, coaching and ‘effective communication’, engagement and burnout strategies, purpose and self-discovery work to leaders and their teams.

We offer transformational, life changing ‘pep talks’ too!

The visionary, LaVada, believes personal and professional development intersects. What differentiate us from others is our holistic approach to individuality. We believe every person has the capacity and potential to lead something – including self.  We do not believe in a one-size fits all model. Instead, we lean into where the person or organization is and their desired state.

Our edge is “iron sharpens iron’ for continuous growth to lead, transform and elevate.
