What We Believe
The old command and control model of leadership is not going to cut it in today’s world. Instead of an MBA, today’s leader might be better served by getting a master’s in psychology degree. Work needs to be done with and through the individuals on the team; every individual comes in with their own desires, goals, and needs to be successful. The ability to balance those individual needs with the team and organizational goals is a requirement for every leader.
Here’s the good news, leadership skills can be learned. They’re not bestowed on a lucky few, with the rest destined to be ineffective managers. But they won’t be learned from a one-time dry lecture. That’s putting a bandaid on the situation.
Learning is done best with engagement, reflection, sharing of best practices, in a cohort, with a bit of experimentation. There isn’t a singular model for what a great leader looks like. Our mission at Luminant Leadership is to bring out the best in each leader and give them the opportunity to flex their leadership style to meet the needs of their team and situation.
Our Big Idea
“A leader’s primary role is to build strong relationships through effective conversations”
This isn’t about popularity or networking, effective conversations are the cornerstone of everything a leader is expected to do. Building psychological safety, setting agreements, co-creating goals, delegating, setting the vision, coaching, providing feedback, and influencing change it’s all done through conversations.
When you ask better questions, listen more fully, engage both the head and the heart, and show up vulnerably as a leader, the conversations change for the better. This is a practice that not only positively impacts the organization, it positively changes the leader in all areas of their life.

Founder and CEO of Luminant Leadership, Deanna Moffitt
is an energetic, thought-provoking force on any stage. From intimate engagements that feel more like conversations to convention-size audiences of 4,000 plus she has an ability to speak to both the mind and soul of audience members.
Wow, Deanna was beyond incredible today!!!! Our team members were truly blown away, and our facilitators were frantically taking notes on how to emulate Deanna’s skill.
Deanna has a gift for bringing her own personal experience to the content for participants and she brings it to life! She is approachable, inviting, and keeps it ‘real world’. I would highly recommend her to work with any audience, at any level, to apply key concepts from Organizational Theory to actual application.
Deanna delivered an inspiring keynote to our group at the TXA Spring Invitational in Phoenix. She encouraged us to re-examine our own experiences and to re-write the stories we tell ourselves. It was an uplifting, thought-provoking session that caused us to reflect on and share our experiences with one another. Deanna was engaging and captivated our attention from start to finish!
