Len Moisan grew up in an Irish and Italian enclave in the inner city of Chicago’s south side. The product of a large, single parent family, he learned at an early age the importance of what people in the city called, “being connected”. Now after 20 years of formal study and two successful careers, one as an educator and the other as an entrepreneur and consultant, Dr. Moisan shares the leadership lessons he has learned. In Leadership is a Covenant he makes the case that the essence of leadership is found in the dynamics of the relationships between leaders and followers.
Len is the Founder and President of The Covenant Group, a private consulting firm in Louisville, Kentucky that helps businesses and non-profit organizations apply the principles of covenant in ways that enable them to build success that lasts. Since its inception, The Covenant Group and its associates have helped hundreds of business and non profit clients enhance employee satisfaction, improve worker productivity and increase organizational revenues and profitability. His long list of clients includes UPS where for more than 15 years he has trained over 5000 mid and senior level executives and pilots in the leadership principles of covenant. Throughout his career Len has served as a teacher, coach, college professor and administrator, corporate trainer, business owner and consultant. He brings new meaning to the concept of leadership by demonstrating how the principles and power of covenants, properly applied, can increase engagement, improve productivity, create prosperity and transform people and organizations for the better. Many of Dr. Moisan’s leadership insights come from a “street smart” understanding of people that he acquired growing up in the inner city. Of course, that understanding has also been refined by education and informed by his personal experience of the power of covenants. Len received his B.A. degree in English and Master’s degree in counseling from Northern Illinois University. He also received an Ed.S degree from Lynchburg College and a Ph.D. from the University of Virginia with a major emphasis in leadership studies. Len and his wife Gigi have three children and live in Louisville.
