As leaders take on roles of greater influence within their organizations, authenticity and the ability to inspire trust among colleagues is critical to success. Over this two-and-a-half day program, participants learn and practice strategies to build relationships in business, manage differences among peers, and tap into their power so they can lead with vision and clarity. Through lecture, group exercises, peer feedback, and deeply personal reflection, participants increase self-awareness of their priorities and unique abilities.
