Ruth Esau - Founder

Founder of Inspired to Lead.Ruth is an outcome-focused leader with proven experience in areas of human resources, customer service, strategic thinking, people development, visionary leadership and change management.


“In my interactions with influential leaders, I have seen how easy it is to focus on challenging their thinking and just as you would twist a Kaleidoscope, help them see a new pattern or opportunity.”


Many leadership development opportunities tend to focus solely on the skill side of leading, which is a must, and yet tend to neglect the people development side of leading.Lack of people skills as experienced through emotional intelligence accounts for 85%of failure in leadership. I am passionate about facilitating organizational skills and people skills coming together for greater synergy.


Ruth's roles and experience have been honed in non-profit, ministry and business, locally and nationally. Ruth's certifications are in Leadership Coaching and Emotional Intelligence.


“I feel most fully alive when after getting to the heart of the matter, I see ‘ah-ha’s’ turn into tangible movement forward.”


Ruth is an intuitive, intentional and relational Leader who seeks to bring relevance to the common topics Leaders grapple with on an ongoing basis.


Mining for the wisdom  in the room is a trademark of Ruth's' facilitation style. An active, visual and curious learner, Ruth draws attention to the essence in each learning opportunity.
