About Llumos

What’s in a name?

Llumos is a derivation of the Latin word lumos, which means ‘will light’ or ‘will shine’. Illuminating and igniting great leadership is at the heart of what we do. What does the extra ‘l’ stand for? Leadership? Leverage? Leaning in? Letting go? We can help you decide based on your goals. Contact us to ignite exceptional leadership in your work, team, organization, family, and community.
