Do you want to become a leader in your workplace?

Are you silently waiting for a promotion or new responsibilities to come your way? Are you unsure how to communicate your value to bosses who aren’t seeing it in our work-from-home situations?

Join this small group leadership development circle if you’d like to take a strategic step towards progressing in your career.

What is it?

A 6 week cohorted learning experience with six 1 hour sessions.

Here are the topics:

    1. Self-Awareness: Identifying Your Natural Strengths and Stubborn Blind Spots
    2. Influencing Others: Understanding Workplace Communication Styles
    3. The Give and Take: Addressing Conflict and Building Balanced Relationships
    4. More Power or More Passion: What Makes You Feel Fulfilled In Your Career

By 2030 most jobs will be soft-skill intensive – this means self-mastery and interpersonal skills are the future of work and the foundation of leadership. If you seek growth within your workplace, that means you will need to develop skills in personal leadership, persuasive power, interpersonal savvy, conflict management, and self advocacy.

If you are ready to take your career advancement into your own hands, you are invited to apply for this small group Leadership Development Circle.
