Hands-Off Leadership™ Is an “Open” Trademark
"May I Use the Hands-Off Leadership Trademark?"
Hands-Off Leadership™ is an open trademark of Neverboss/Priacta, Inc. This means that we readily license its use without monetary payment as long as it is used in a way that supports the open Mission of Neverboss. We do ask for a link acknowledging our trademark rights, and we ask you to make it clear how you have modified or improved the Hands-Off Leadership model in your own practice.
Option 1. If You Want To Use the Hands-Off Leadership™ Trademark To ...
- Truthfully describe a Neverboss or Priacta site or services
- Accurately report news
- Create honest reviews
Then "Yes!" Just use it with Capitalized First Letters, and if you acknowledge other third-party trademarks, please link to or acknowledge ours too.
Option 2. If You Want to Use the Hands-Off Leadership™ Trademark (Just the Trademark) For...
- Your own coaching, training, or consulting websites or materials, or

- Consistent with the Neverboss Mission,
- With NO additional certification or training from us,
- With NO exclusivity, NO referrals, and NO listing on our site as a NEVERBOSS™ Certified Provider,
Then "Yes! AS LONG AS" we both sign a Quick License granting you these rights without monetary compensation. (The complexities of trademark law require the agreement.)
This license ONLY covers the use of the Hands-Off Leadership™ trademark. It does not cover our other materials or trademarks.
This license is available even if you compete with us. We believe in and foster the principles of Gracious Professionalism® and win/win Coopertition® as demonstrated by FIRST. When everyone practices Hands-Off Leadership™ and builds cultures of empowerment, everyone wins.
