Nick Obando began his career in education, bringing his love of music to students and SEED facilitation to fellow educators. In his role at Leverage to Lead, Nick connects several key learnings from music education to equity work. Performing music and creating equitable workplaces both require deep listening, responsiveness and adaptiveness, and constant development of one’s authentic self.

One area of leadership coaching and facilitation Nick is especially passionate about is identity work and storytelling, because he’s seen the transformation that happens when we simply listen to our stories. He shares about the intersectionality of his own identity—race, ethnicity, gender, language, family, and more—to help others connect their personal and professional identities, show up fully in every space, and leverage their differences. Helping clients see, own, connect, and express the various parts of their identity is how Nick grounds his DEI work. Based in northern California, Nick enjoys spending time with his family, running, playing saxophone, and learning about and trying out new technology.
