Skinner Leadership Institute(SLI) is a unique organization that works alongside business, political, youth and clergy leaders across the nation, and brings together leaders of diverse races and cultures seeking reconciliation based on the teachings and lessons of Jesus Christ. Our goal is to train a new generation of Christ-centered leaders who are technically and morally excellent. SLI was founded by Dr. Barbara Williams-Skinner and her husband, the late Tom Skinner, a former Harlem New York gang leader turned evangelist, pro sports chaplain, and author. Dr. Barbara Williams-Skinner has made an indelible imprint in American politics as a faith leader, author, lecturer, lawyer, businesswoman, educator, trusted advisor, mentor, political strategist and serves as President of the organization.
"Great Leaders inspire, motivate, impart faith, and built confidence. Great Leaders move people from one place to another, from one goal to another. Great Leaders pour themselves into people, give themselves away to people and get the job done through people."
