Meghan Prout

Meghan found out early in life if you start building up the people, the results will follow. Graduating from Chapman University in Orange, CA with a B.A. in psychology and a minor in Leadership and Organizational Studies only deepened her passion for cultural development within organizations. For over 13 years, she has facilitated and directed domestic and international leadership programs for student leaders, at-risk youth, community leaders, aesthetic plastic surgeons, public safety professionals, and students and young adults from the United States, Egypt, Turkey, the United Kingdom, Russia, Pakistan, and China. She traveled to the United Kingdom, China, and Egypt as a leadership facilitator and program director, emphasizing the development of both personal awareness and leadership skill. Professionally, she is a Performance Leader with Frontline Performance Group consulting in sales and service with various hotels within the Hawaiian Islands. Her passion for leadership development goes hand in hand with her passion for people. Because without effective leaders, an organization can only be as strong as their lowest-performing employee. In her free time, Meghan is a certified Bar Method instructor, teaching bare fitness classes while encouraging a healthy and active lifestyle.
