IMAGE: Lead Like a Boss - A Leadership Adventure


Logo: The Leadership Green Room is presented by Republic Bank FoundationThis interactive leadership course is designed for accomplished professionals who want to take their career to the next level. Participants will explore how some of the behaviors that lead to individual success may be the very tendencies that limit their potential. With greater awareness of interpersonal skills in leadership, participants will create a developmental action plan that equips them for greater career responsibility. While many courses focus on telling leaders what to do – this course helps leaders understand what to stop.

This course utilizes the powerful and solution-based curriculum from bestselling author Marshall Goldsmith’s book, What Got You Here Won’t Get You There (with his permission), combined with principles of emotional intelligence and the rigor of change management.

January 12 & 26, 2018 | 2 half days ($450)
