From a seminal moment following his undergraduate work, Lloyd recognized a natural affinity for partnering with others to design practical, innovative solutions to work-life challenges. With curiosity and nonjudgment, he helped people engage their best efforts to address needs and contribute value in the world. During his graduate studies, he grounded his domain knowledge through the study of justice. Soon after graduation, he was invited to teach courses on socio-economic justice to Washington, DC, police officers -- which thoroughly tested his abstract notions about justice in lively conversations with street savvy professionals. The outcomes of those experiences affirmed that dignity, respect, fairness, and justice were, indeed, the glue at the center of social relations locally and globally. And it confirmed, as well, that dialogue and conversation were powerful catalysts for developmental change.
In his early professional years, Lloyd was Director of a non-profit organization working with juvenile offenders in Washington , DC, and then was invited to be Director of an undergraduate honors program focused on justice issues (ranging from interpersonal to international level issues). He was a founding faculty mentor in the Federal Judicial Center Leadership Program, mentoring five mid-level leaders for one year each. He is a founding faculty member of Georgetown University 's Leadership Coaching Program, where he continues to teach. He spent over 10 years teaching innovative action learning courses related to justice and ethics at American University and University of Maryland University College. Prior to his professional focus on executive and leadership development, he coached lawyers, scientists, information systems experts, and engineers.
