Thoughtful Leadership

Although there are many various ways to lead and manage a group, the most effective and thoughtful leaders maximize their leadership potential through rigorous education, self-assessment, and training. The purpose of our 'Thoughtful Leadership' workshop is to provide participants with a foundation for growing their leadership capabilities and potential by expanding their understanding of what it takes to be an effective leader. This program will expose participants to core leadership models and approaches and provide them with an opportunity to reflect on their own leadership strength and development priorities to build the foundation of a self-aware, thoughtful, and effective leader.
