Higher Living Leadership


Higher Living Leaders embrace the attributes that unleash their personal leadership value, generate it in others, and positively transform culture.

“I am convinced that there are key principles that have the power to change a leader internally as well as empower them to bring external change within their spheres of influence. For years I have repackaged relevant business concepts, such as EQ-Emotional Intelligence, to communicate my personal passion. Knowing that language is a key to describe the essence of a message, I am now mingling my research, experience and voice to introduce the concept of Validation Quotient-the attributes that unleash personal leadership value, generate it in others, and positively transform culture.”
— Dr. Melody Hilton
