Spring Executive Development Series: Leading with Power and Authenticity

April 3rd –5th 2019
Kimpton Brice Hotel
Savannah, GA

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.

This program is unique in that the power of the leader is assumed to be based on authenticity. With greater clarity of core values and strengths, leaders increase their impact, inspiring themselves and others to contribute their greatest gifts.

Through lecture, group exercises, peer feedback, and deeply personal reflection, participants increase self-awareness of their priorities and unique abilities. On the final day, participants bring all elements together as they develop a tailored action plan.

What’s included: Coach Airline tickets and Hotel are included.  Meals are not reimbursed.

Deadline to Apply: February 22nd 2019
