This workshop has already happened. But don’t worry, it will be happening again in the future. For now, please see our list of upcoming workshops.
Leaders aren’t appointed. They emerge.
They’re the people that take initiative when they see a problem. Either through asking permission to respond, or responding first and asking forgiveness later, leaders are the ones that take the first step. We all have the potential to be leaders.
In this workshop, you’ll explore the core concepts of leadership, and identify what leadership means to you. You will learn how to recognize leadership around you and how to use it to succeed in driving your team forward. If leadership is present, your team will proceed responsibly and effectively.
