San Diego, CA. If you don’t already know the name Terrell Fletcher, you will… and certainly should! This NFL pro turned no-holds-barred cultural consultant and commentator, leadership expert and community mobilizer is on a mission to give the disenfranchised a “voice” that’s actually heard, and advocate why (and how) everyone in workplaces, homes and sports programs across the U.S. can live a community-centric life—one that’s driven by the kind of transformation and action that makes organizations, schools, homes, streets, cities and towns better to the extent that the impacts can be felt on a national scale.

Terrell doesn’t just talk the talk, he walks the walk. His own calling commenced in April of 2005 when, having realized a dream of his own through which he could utilize innate gifts, he was drafted into the NFL by the San Diego Chargers. There he enjoyed a successful 8-year career with the team. During this period, Fletcher became a vital and extremely active part of the community, serving as the Chairman and Spokesman for Jr. Achievement, volunteering with San Diego County Adoptions and regularly making meals to feed San Diego’s homeless, among other of his charitable and philanthropic endeavors.

Never one to shy away from “tackling’ a challenge and with his NFL “activist athlete” years now behind him, today Terrell remains a man of action—a bold community leader, organizer and compassionate advocate for those in our society who are marginalized and need an “assist” to help their proverbial voices be heard.

To learn more, I connected with Terrell for some of his fresh and unique insights, leadership lessons he learned on the gridiron and how we can all create a legacy through leadership.  Listen to my exclusive interview with Terrell here.
