Do you ever reflect on what enlightens you? What sparks you? What engages you?
On the quest to become a great leader, you possess the ability to connect, with your employees, your organization, but primarily with yourself. These connections are vital to your fulfilment of leading with your 'soul'. The soul of a leader is in the Knowing, Being and Doing. During this lively session, you will engage in reflecting, thinking, growing your own dynamic qualities and infuse the energy to create a positive aura in your life. Join in engaging discussion on how to use your 'soulful' gifts, talents, and specially-designed tools to create the leader in you- the very essence of who you are- who you desire to become.
