Leaders have always required both competence and vision.

In this workshop attendees will learn and practice in the following areas:
– Emotional intelligence and how to build it
– Six leadership styles to use to motivate your teams
– Current brain science that makes communication challenging
– Practice the skills that result in communication that builds trust, builds teams and fosters engagement.

This workshop will be both practical, challenging and fun so come prepared to participate as you learn about yourself and others as part of your leadership journey.
