We will learn what is acceptable and what is offensive and learn alternate ways to behave that improves chances for success while maintaining productive relationships, no matter what the background.

Priscilla Walker Locke, aka Pat is honored to be president of Life Plan Services (LPS), LLC and Seeds of Humanity Foundation, Inc. Her passion for the last 30 years has been the study of the human condition and leadership. This journey began after leaving Detroit, Michigan, joining the U.S. Army, and working as a Communications Specialist at Fort Polk, Louisiana. A year later her commander asked her to consider attending West Point, to which she responded, "What's that?" Pat became a member of the first class of women to graduate from the United States Military Academy (USMA) in 1980 and, by order of merit (OML), the first African-American woman to graduate from West Point.
USMA was a "fire hose" introduction to the world of leadership, ethics, communications, protocol, etiquette, which significantly enhanced the "fine" character she acquired growing up in Detroit in the 1970's. After acquiring such valuable traits, receiving the Key to the City of Detroit, and being featured in many national magazines and newspapers, this was now the perfect opportunity to start effectively giving back. Pat started a foundation, "Seeds of Humanity," to address significant childhood developmental needs in underserved areas. She received her certification in Montessori instruction by the Association Montessori International (AMI), Washington DC, her Master's in Education from Loyola in Baltimore and her Master's of Science in Administration from Central Michigan University.
Measuring where she came from to where she is today, Pat sees how a lack of core leadership skills can limit personal and professional effectiveness and happiness in life. Since 1995, in both a volunteer and professional capacity, she has dedicated her service to help people in their leader skills. From helping corporations to helping children, she is passionate about people acquiring these essential life skills and developing a plan to maintain, increase and pass them on during their "Ascent to Excellence"!
