Meet Doc Holly

Dr. Holly Latty-Mann is the president and co-founder (with the late Dr. Jim Farr) of The Leadership Trust®. Holly specializes in helping leaders unleash their full human potential to inspire trust-inspired collaboration. She uses an extended holistic, integrative model designed to heighten both self-awareness and emotional intelligence at root-cause level. She also performs comprehensive, customized leadership impact studies, corporate assessments, organizational development initiatives, onsite/offsite team-building retreats, and strategic culture studies for diverse businesses and industries. Every year Holly donates time to non-profit organizations in the form of pro bono workshops and presentations.

Latty-Mann, a licensed clinical psychologist for over 20 years, completed her post doctorate in clinical psychology at Kent State and Duke University Medical Center after having earned a doctorate of philosophy from the University of South Carolina in experimental psychology (social psychology/personality). She served as Executive Professor of Leadership at the Wake Forest University Schools of Business and later formed alliances with other major North Carolina universities including Duke’s Fuqua School of Business, their Coach K Center on Leadership and Ethics.

In 2015 Doc Holly was named as a Top 100 Thought Leader in Trust by Trust Across America – Trust Around the World. She was selected in 2014 as a Top 100 Thought Leader in Trustworthy Business by the same organization. Holly’s 2012 published anthology is entitled Roadmap to Success and co-authored with Dr. Ken Blanchard, Dr. Deepak Chopra, et. al. Her contribution is described as an extended 4-Channel Model, in which the three channels of Mind, Body, and Emotions are powered by the master channel of Spirit to achieve “flow,” a state of social knowingness in which one “gets” what makes both self and others tick. This is at the cornerstone of one’s ability to inspire trust and therefore buy-in which promotes respectful, progressive collaboration, even when under trying circumstances.

Holly’s serious passion is animal welfare. Her semi-serious passion is piano, and her lighthearted passion is foreign travel, having traveled extensively and mostly for fun to more than fifty foreign countries. When in North Carolina, you’ll find her hiking and biking her favorite trails, creating what she describes as “Total freedom, total joy, one big smile!”
