Impactful Leadership during Challenging Times | August 13, 2020

As leaders and Human Resource professionals, we have the opportunity to impact those around us. But often, we get caught up in the day to day and miss those opportunities.

Becoming an Impactful Leader shifts the dynamics from just overseeing a workforce, to creating a positive & sustainable impact in our corporate culture. Through this engaging session, you will learn to lead authentically through vulnerability-based trust to make a long-lasting, meaningful and positive contribution with those you lead.

Uncover the 5 steps toward becoming an Impactful Leader:

1: The Shift - Discover how Impactful Leaders can transform careers from just another job to one that makes impact.

2: The Encourager- Understand how your seemingly simple actions as a leader can have lasting impact.

3: The Silent Leader- Uncover how your leadership, even in silence, can make a powerful impact.

4: The WalkListen as you learn what it really means to ‘Walk the Talk’ to become an Impactful Leader.

5: The Human SideWatch as we go behind the TV camera one last time and realize Impactful Leadership isn’t just an 8 – 5 job.

Follow us on a journey behind the TV camera.  Experience real life stories and events that will lead you to discover what an IMPACTFUL LEADER is and begin your journey to become impactful. A good coach can change a game... a great coach can change a life.  Be Great!
