An Invitation to Mastery
The New Culture of Leadership
Pre-pandemic leadership was old, antiquated, and stale.
Leadership was an exclusive Members Only Club dedicated to those who looked the part and perpetuated the status quo.
Then, the pandemic hit, and a tectonic shift happened that no leader could have predicted.
Employees were in a mass exodus, forcing organizational leaders to re-evaluate their core values and burn down their systems to begin anew.
Leaders made swift changes to healthcare benefits, work-from-home policies, and DEI efforts brought on by the social justice movements that no leader could ignore.
Today, we’re picking up the pieces and marching forward with new values, insights, and innovations in the field of leadership.
A new culture where you find a deeper meaning and purpose in your leadership.
A new culture where your relationship with yourself is the strongest it has ever been.
A new culture where status and psychological safety aren’t mutually exclusive.
A new culture where you are supported because you are a woman who thinks, feels, and behaves as such.
Welcome to the culture of Masters of Leadership, where the road to mastery will require a new way of leading.
This is your invitation to mastery.
Answer the call now and begin the road to mastery.

Brand & Project Manager Nonprofit Organization
When I first started working with Dr. Simpson, I was still transitioning from my previous Graphic Designer role into the one of Brand and Project Manager.
Having always seen myself exclusively as a graphic designer, this career shift required a profound identity change. The new position came with its own set of challenges, as I was now responsible for serving multiple stakeholders and handling numerous tasks.
This increased workload sometimes made me question my ability to adapt to the new challenges effectively. Throughout our time together, I am most proud of the transformation in my mindset and the realization of my true potential.
Dr. Denise has helped me navigate the challenges of managing several responsibilities. Her guidance and support have been invaluable in reminding me of my professional self-worth and empowering me to embrace the demands of my role with confidence.
The progress I've made with Dr. Denise Simpson's guidance has been truly remarkable. She has encouraged me to explore project management, which has equipped me with valuable tools and techniques which benefit my new role, my team, and my organization.
Dr. Simpson's support and expertise have been invaluable in sharpening my communication skills, empowering me to articulate ideas effectively and navigate conflicts with confidence.
I am grateful for the transformation she has helped me achieve, both professionally and personally.
To anyone who is facing the challenges of a new role or feeling overwhelmed by their responsibilities, I would wholeheartedly recommend working with Dr. Denise and joining the Masters of Leadership Institute.
Her expertise and support will help you uncover your true potential, build confidence in your professional abilities, and find a fulfilling path amidst the challenges.
Investing in this program is an investment in your growth and success. Your future self will thank you for making this decision.
Higher Education Leader
Before working with Dr. Denise and Masters of Leadership Institute, I felt out of place in leadership although I have a natural tendency for it. I did not feel confident or strong as a leader in certain places, especially as a Latina, as if I was not taken seriously.
Imposter syndrome would take over and I would second guess myself.
The MLI offers "real talk" with real solutions that I needed to help realize my self-worth, both as an individual and professional. This along with the unfailing support of Dr. Denise and MLI made me feel that I could take on my Leadership role and know I was not alone...in fact was cherished and championed.
I realized the support and trainings of MLI were working when I stopped fearing the process, people and position I was aiming for to level up.
I am happy to divulge that I am the new Director of Advising at UIW. I feel confident that I am making a difference everyday in the lives of my students. I am a work in progress, but happy to continue to realize the changes in myself, my confidence and overall life balance.
Here are a few questions your fellow leaders asked before joining the membership
I don't know if I'm a leader. How would I know?
Is this program a long-term contract?
I've paid thousands of dollars for coaching. Is $77 a month really worth it?
What if I don't have time to complete everything?
I'd rather work with Dr. Denise personally. Is that possible?
Is this only for women?

Dr. Denise Simpson, is not merely an exceptional coach and mentor; she is a force of inspiration and transformation that has left an indelible mark on my life.
Working with Dr. Denise Simpson has been nothing short of amazing. From the very beginning of our journey, it was evident that I was in the hands of someone truly exceptional.

Anais B. Miracle
Chief Communications Officer, Nonprofit Organization
As a client of Dr. Denise Garcia Simpson, I was introduced to her work through the San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce’s Latina Leadership Institute (LLI), and I remember hearing her story of resilience and incredible resolve.
Upon taking this leap of faith, and quite frankly in the words of Dr. Simpson, a strategic step of “risk tolerance,” I moved to Austin for a career move that has been transformational.
In that vein, we are encouraged to engage with an executive coach, and Dr. Simpson has been someone that has become my confidant, sounding board, and executive coach to delve into challenging conversations centered around female executive skillset, mindset, and capacity.
Dr. Simpson’s expertise in neuroscience and leadership holds a mirror to your brain, and says our “brain is going to brain,” but she teaches you how to quiet the negativity and gives you space to be your authentic self, and has taught me and has ingrained in me, that “to be in this position or to be in a position of great influence and responsibility is a privilege and never a right.”
I have been on this journey with Dr. Simpson for nearly two years, and she has not only worked with me, but she has also created tailored workshops for our Communications team members, so that we may pour into their professional development and leadership.
If you want to see you and your team transform, you must make the time to research Dr. Simpson, engage with Dr. Simpson on a one-on-one basis for a courtesy hour-long session, and see her passion come through as she listens, observes, and processes your experiences.
Dr. Simpson is authentic, brilliant, caring, charismatic, intelligent. She is a trusted professional specializing in neuroscience-leadership, female executive leadership, and understanding the intricacies of the C-Suite.
