Charitable Giving

Empower • Lead • Excel

The Leadership Coach Group exists to develop leaders and empower them to create positive change in the world. One way we accomplish this is through our charitable giving. Every year we dedicate a percentage of our profits and offer complimentary youth leadership coaching and training to the Hugh O’Brian Youth (HOBY) Foundation’s Maryland Leadership Seminar, Inc. so that students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds can sharpen their leadership skills and have a positive impact on their community.

HOBY Maryland is the local, state-level affiliate of Hugh O’Brian Youth (HOBY) International. For more than five decades, HOBY has inspired young people to make a difference and become catalysts for positive change in their home, school, workplace, and community. As America’s foremost youth leadership organization, HOBY has a long history of successfully motivating young people to develop into outstanding leaders. Much of the work at HOBY involves young people exploring and identifying their unique leadership skills. Every student is different, and there is no attempt to impart a predefined set of attributes onto HOBY participants. They stress self-knowledge, uniqueness, and authenticity, not conformity. Students learn to mobilize their own unique traits and are exposed to particular leadership principles that they can explore and incorporate in a fashion that is true to their own personality.

Leadership Coach Group CEO, Micheal Seelman, attended HOBY Maryland as a high school sophomore and the 4-day seminar had a profound impact on the course of his life. As he describes it, HOBY was the spark that ignited a passionate to desire to serve others and lead the way. His life purpose to “help people and organizations reach their full potential” was inspired by his HOBY experience. He has served as a volunteer with the organization for over 30 years including leadership roles such as alumni president, director of facilitators, director of program, vice-chair of the seminar, and vice president of the board of trustees. In 2003 he was the first recipient of the HOBY Spirit Award for his impactful leadership development and volunteer work and in 2005 he was recognized as Outstanding Young Marylander by the Junior Chamber of Commerce for his public and community service.
