About FLI

The Federal Leadership Institute™ (FLI) is a woman owned small business and a professional consulting firm dedicated to providing organizational, community-based, and program management services to federal, state, and academic clients. We specialize in administering, managing and supporting organizational effectiveness, community transformation, program management, and technical assistance efforts.



Founded in 1999, Dr. Laura Granato’s vision was to develop an organization that provided high-quality and high-impact consulting services to organizations by applying validated research and strengths-based principles to the community, the workplace and organizations.

Since then, we have accumulated over a decade of experience and have had the opportunity to develop numerous long-lasting relationships with several federal agencies. Our philosophy is simple: to bring our customers high-quality training, coaching, and consulting services; to develop a dedicated network of partners and clients to create collaborative and lasting partnerships; and, to make a difference by helping others build and support sustainable communities.

At FLI we pride ourselves on our proven track record and ability to work closely with our clients to truly understand their needs. By providing the flexibility and customization that a small business can offer, coupled with the experience, resources, and depth of a large business, FLI has positioned themselves as a dynamic leader and reliable firm in the market.
