In this session you will learn how to use leadership skills to create the future you want. With 5 specific tools, you will take action right away to make changes to the world around you. This is hands-on time to develop your personal strategy in the key areas that matter to being a great leader. Grow your leadership, get things moving!

  • Decisions, decisions, decisions! Understand problem solving style and lead through change (1:45 pm - 3:00 pm)?

Our success depends on how well we solve problems. The loftier the goal the more complex the problems. Learn your problem-solving style* and discover the value your style brings to a team. Before arriving to this exploratory session you will fill in the KAI inventory. Results will be revealed during the workshop and you will see how you uniquely contribute to problem solving. Together we will explore how positioning team members in the problem-solving process can make success easier, faster and more fun!
