Inspire Vision & Develop Strategy for Optimal Business Results

In our increasingly tumultuous business environment, with unexpected changes upending processes and operations practically overnight, senior leaders need to be resilient and strategic and continually learn as they lead and inspire their teams of leaders.

Attend four multi-day, in-person workshops, supplemented with engaging, online sessions to maintain momentum and keep in touch with your fellow participants—your new Peer Accountability Network.

*Leading Leaders hasn’t been scheduled for 2024 as our consultants are refining the curriculum for this program based on valuable feedback we received from the inaugural program participants. We plan to schedule the next Leading Leaders cohort to launch either the 4th quarter of 2024 or spring of 2025. Please let us know if you’d like to be notified of the program dates once they are scheduled.
