Meet Atlanta’s Leading HR Consultant

Lelia Hagood, CEO & Founder

Before there was a high-performing HR training company…..

Before there was an executive consultant driving harmony in the workplace…

There was an HR executive at a corporate office, leading with compassion.

For over 20 years Lelia Hagood has used her positive attitude and a strong commitment to excellence in Human Resources to train over 3,000 employees.

Her experience working for Fortune 500 institutions and her career success in a diversity of industries including Hospitality, Distribution, and Technology allowed Lelia to land her dream job leading an incredible team.


Lelia’s dream crumbled when her unique style of compassionate leadership came into conflict with a toxic and hostile workplace.

After the company’s closure in 2017 left her out of work, Lelia remained committed to the advancement of others. After successfully acting as a recruiter for 160 of her displaced coworkers, Lelia turned her attention to rebuilding her dreams.

Lelia founded The Humanity Group, a corporate training and HR leadership consulting firm aimed at transforming the workplace. Her reputation as a results-driven performer allowed her to obtain her first contract with the Atlanta Marriott Marquis hotel in Atlanta, Georgia.
