About Charles Hosford & Associates
Our founder, Charles "Hos" Hosford, was an internationally known management consultant. Often referred to as the “trainer’s trainer,” he was best recognized for his work in leadership development, team building, and conflict resolution for high-tech, business, government, education and social organizations.
Hos developed Leadout for use in his training programs. After years of fine tuning and incorporating real life critiques, the Leadout simulation was marketed around the world as a training tool – with overwhelmingly positive response. Hos dedicated his professional life to creating innovative, challenging, safe, fun and inspirational learning environments. Leadout exemplifies his approach to teaching and learning.
We are continuing Hos' legacy at Charles Hosford & Associates by helping people and organizations develop their authentic leadership skills. Charles Hosford & Associates is committed to education, social responsibility, inclusion and exemplary customer service.
Leadout is manufactured and produced in the USA using local businesses. Our company is owned by Leslie Hosford Rose and headquartered in Portland, Oregon, USA.
