About the Academy

The R.E.A.L. Leadership Academy was founded by professional speaker and author Matt Jones (www.MatthewDJones.com). The idea for the Academy came during his first year of his PhD program in Organizational Leadership as a solution to the leadership gap that exists in many sectors of society. The mission of the Academy is to develop leaders who are inspirational, influential, innovative, and make a lasting impact. This is accomplished through the most up to date leadership theories, practices, and the core characterizes of R.E.A.L. Leadership which are relational, ethical, authentic, and lasting. We provide the following services:

Keynotes Consulting Breakout Sessions Coaching Seminars Assessments


There are six core services currently offered by the Academy. These services range from a forty-five minute keynote to one on one leadership assessments. Each component/service is designed to increase the characteristics of R.E.A.L. leadership in the participant. The model used by the Academy is like a funnel with the services starting out more broad, general, and universal; becoming more specific and tailored to the individual. This allows for the services to be offered to a large group down to the individual and their specific needs. These services are also tailored and benefit leaders in all sectors including: for-profit and non-profit organizations/associations/corporations, governments, college, and youth.
