    Join us and learn how to become a powerful leader!

    Because of widespread hidden agendas and extensive political maneuvering in an ever-changing global economy, most people do not intrinsically trust themselves, others, or the organization they work for. Is it possible to break through this barrier and become a trustworthy, high-performing leader? We think so, and will teach you how to become powerful leader WHO has a heart.

    In this workshop we focus on intention, trust, and the relationships that are built between a leader and those that they lead. Trust is foundational for leaders at all levels who aspire to direct and contribute to initiatives and processes within the organization.
