What is Service Before Self Leadership?

SBSL is an educational solutions provider, founded in the fall of 2011 by Mr. SJ Barakony.  

How do we approach our work?  

SBSL designs & implements customized solutions - whether they be via paid services on retainer ( mentoring, advising , group facilitation ( Mastermind, DISC, 5 Behaviors, or DJ to DJ )),  and/or consulting via connecting and recommending one of our suppliers with whom we have a collaborative working agreement ( *28 businesses +  as of early 2017 ) 

Why do we exist?   

Generally stated, our overarching mission is to fill in the gaps ( aka, 15 root issues ) which exist in the traditional model of educating our citizenry.  To put into context : 

  • The K-12 model, with many of its features still in use by public, many charters, private, faith based, and even home schooling families, is 140+ years old.  ​
  • The collegiate/undergrad/university track is 70+ years old, coming into existence just after WWII wrapped, and spreading far and wide from there. 

Whom do we work with ( target markets : B2B , B2C, etc ) ?

We primarily focus on working w/ families, individuals, faith based institutions, & small and mid sized business owners/entrepreneurs. 

We heartily welcome any & all opportunities to collaborate with other educational innovators, visionaries, and early adopters, too!
