Speakers


Christina Wooten

Like you, leadership expert and professional development coach, Christina Wooten has seen leadership defined numerous ways.  Is it decisiveness and dedication, parts Charisma or positive thinking? Is leadership dependent on the situation or is it only for the gifted or chosen few? With over two decades of coaching, leadership, speaking and most importantly, real-life, in-the-trenches business experience, her view is radically different. Christina appreciates, and shares with clients, that leadership is a day-to-day choice and not about title, tenure, or position. Leadership is for everyone, every day. It is how we should live our lives. Christina works with clients from college students to small business owners to executives using her courageous coaching style to bring out their very best leadership potential. Christina is known for her ability to connect, relate, and challenge audiences to rise to their leadership ability and increase their influence. Christina has served in many leadership positions with Wells Fargo Bank over her sixteen year career there. She also is a certified speaker, coach, and trainer with the John Maxwell team and a certified assertiveness coach. Christina also hosts her Dreamcasting 101 workshop virtually four times a year to walk clients beyond goal setting and into dream achievement through action planning.

Advisor



Dr. Alan Aylor
Professor of Business

My professional career began as a high school teacher and basketball coach. While teaching I completed a course of study in computer science at a local Community College and left the teaching profession to work in IT for a manufacturing firm in Southern California. This began a path of opportunity that allowed me to work with robotics, manufacturing process control, ERP and data control systems. Eventually I became the Vice-President of Operations for this same manufacturing firm having oversight of all aspects of the company except sales. I subsequently left that business to become the President of another manufacturing operation where I was able to expand the firm from a domestic operation to a multi-site, international corporation. A later transition took me from the private sector to the nonprofit world where I spent 12 years as the Executive Pastor of a large church in Southern California. In that capacity I was involved in numerous projects including developing a community-based sports ministry that provided leagues and clinics to over 2,000 children annually. The nonprofit environment was a unique growth opportunity. Nonprofits face many of the same challenges as for profit organizations but often work with volunteer and diverse workforces. Working in this sector allowed me to further develop my leadership and managerial skills. I graduated from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona with a BS in Social Science and a teaching credential. In 1999 I received my MBA from the University of Redlands and in 2011 a DBA from Argosy University. I now enjoy teaching and do consulting work with organizations on strategic planning, leadership and organizational development. As an instructor I enjoy the opportunity to interact with students while creating an environment in which individuals discover their potential.
