Organizational leaders are often viewed as one-dimensional characters driving their subordinates to just get the job done. In order to have a thriving culture, everyone’s potential must be “unlocked”. This highly interactive session will explore how to tap into your true potential and transform the day-to-day work environment into a collective experience where you can lead intentionally, inclusively, and indefinitely.
