How to create a safe, inclusive and effective corporate culture.

Implementing D&I initiatives takes a lot of introspection about a corporation's internal practices and oftentimes, personal biases.

Using the Tuff Tactics in The Ultimate Diversity Blueprint Program will limit biases and will change the culture within the company, organization, nonprofit or school.

Your culture is unique...

Your training, coaching, or consulting program should support your culture, plans for growth and philosophy. We have several programs and speaking topics available which can be tailored into a program that will ensure that your time and money are well spent.

Don't be concerned! We have the nation in the same yacht. Antoinette is here to help.

Antoinette's experience with using Tuff Tactics (Compassion, Confidence and Control) and her experience of being held hostage on August 20, 2013, will be able to get you back in driver's seat.

Antoinette has the techniques and tools you need to kick-start your new normal which includes diversity, inclusion and psychological safety.

Antoinette Tuff, knows firsthand what it feels like to hear the words from a troubled young man that “We are going to all die today” after a parent leaving the building held the door open allowing him to come in without being buzzed into the school holding an AK-47 and over 500 rounds of ammunition. Rather than running in fear, barricading herself behind a desk or using a firearm, she used compassion, confidence, and control to convince the shooter to hand her the weapon which saved more than 1,000 lives on August 20, 2013, at the Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy in the Atlanta metro area. This is the only school active shooter situation in the US that ended without death or injury to school students, faculty, parents or shooter himself. Since becoming a hero, Antoinette has been teaching international audiences strategies in dealing with difficult situations with her presentations and programs. Antoinette has also become a national expert and community leader for student safety, which includes the prevention of bullying and suicide, as well as the deescalating an active shooter situation.  Her book, PREPARED for a PURPOSE, received "The Christopher Award" and became an international bestseller. Antoinette shares her unexpected journey in becoming an everyday hero and the details of her diversity, inclusion and psychological safety with corporations, non-profits, churches, school districts, and universities.


Here is somebody who is not just courageous, not just cool under pressure, but also had enough heart that somehow she could convince somebody troubled that she really cared about him.

The Inspiring True Story of How One Woman Saved an Atlanta School Under Siege.

Antoinette Tuff's courage and faith prevented tragedy in a school under siege. 870 children waited in fear as their elementary school rushed into lockdown mode. As the nation faced yet another Sandy Hook story of tragedy, one woman rewrote the ending.

Yet the story doesn't start with those first steps Michael Hill took into that Atlanta elementary school. It starts with Antoinette Tuff, a woman who faced her own pain, hurt, and rejection, yet held onto grace, faith, and hope. A hope that anchored her in the most high-stakes moments, a grace that allowed her to empathize with a hurting young man, and a faith that gave her the courage to love him back from the brink.



Kids on the Move for Success believes that there are many issues that contribute to the success of children. For children to succeed, they must feel safe, must be transported to a world beyond their everyday life, learn that STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) fields are available to all (minorities and girls) and that giving back to the community is important in learning acceptance and developing leadership skills. Kids on the Move for Success believes compassion, confidence and control are foundational elements in the success of children now and in the future. Our programs are designed to be mobile and dynamic allowing us to impact communities at the local, state and national level.
