Successful Client Journeys

We have repeatedly booked Refined Leadership to pour into our leadership cohort due to her skill to merge foundation leadership principles with relatable anecdotes.  From team dynamics to implicit bias, Dr. Blount has opened our team of high performing leaders and executives to new perspectives and approaches as they show up in their respective organizational spaces.  Most of all, she partners with her client to ensure the sessions are tailored to individual needs and adequately addresses all pain points.  I highly recommend Refined Leadership to any organization seeking to see sustainable growth, improved relationships, and actualized innovation.

Dr. Morgan Blount was the head of the inaugural Operations Analyst Program. At first, I was apprehensive about the program. Fortunately, those fears were quickly dispelled under Morgan’s leadership. From the outset, she set a tone of empathy, transparency, and accountability that put us all at ease. But what I admired most about Morgan’s leadership style is her ability to make you feel truly valued—even in a fully virtual environment. She always took the time to give each of us individualized guidance and support, which motivated us to perform at our peak.

Dr. Morgan Blount is a dynamic and effective leader and facilitator. The Tampa Organization of Black Affairs (TOBA) recently had Dr. Blount lead our icebreaker activity and team-building exercise to kick off our 2023 Leadership Development cohort. While developing each lesson, she considered the group members’ dynamics and the activities’ purpose while ensuring the audience felt engaged and enlightened by the end of each task. Dr. Blount was very easy to work with during the planning phase and thoughtful in asking questions that ensured she understood our end goal and how to best prepare for the session. Her efforts resulted in a carefully catered and very successful practice, and the audience felt connected to each other as well as the organization by the end of the program. Anyone who has the privilege of working with Dr. Blount is fortunate to have someone that is professional and relatable. We hope to have Dr. Blount revisit us for next year’s cohort.
