Talent. Drive. Strategy. All of these things are necessary to be an effective leader, but ultimately will not matter unless you possess one crucial ingredient. If you’re currently struggling – or worried that you will have difficulty – influencing others in your organization to action, this session will help you identify what you’re missing and help you correct it.

Take Control and THRIVE

Take Control and THRIVE

9/12/24 | 3:00-6:00pm | In-person at Walsh College
Too often leadership trainings are not successful in producing long-term lasting change, both for the leader and the organization. That’s because they rely too heavily on conscious mind theories and principles. And, while these can be useful when applied for a period of time, the problem is making sure these strategies can effectively take root with the leader and with the organization, in order to see positive change. In this leadership session, we’ll empower you with evidence-backed, neuroscience-based tools that you can apply right away to take back control and THRIVE in all areas of your life!
