About Dr. Shackleford . . .

Dr. Shackleford is a consultant and coach providing outstanding, relevant, dynamic leadership development training for business, education, church, community, and military organizations.
Leadership training has been a major passion throughout Dr. Shackleford’s career. He studied leadership in his university doctoral program, taught leadership studies at High Point University, and led leadership training for military commanders as a military chaplain. When he became President of Randolph Community College, he immediately started a Student Leadership Academy and created and implemented the President’s Educational Leadership Academy for faculty and staff, which he led for fifteen consecutive years, with a waiting list of hopeful participants each semester. He has been a highly sought speaker at professional conferences and statewide leadership programs for students, faculty, and staff for decades. It is only appropriate that he has taken a lifetime of leadership experiences and poured them into the Shackleford Leadership Institute, with the goal of "Inspiring Excellence in Leadership."
