Positive Leadership – Live Virtual Workshop

6-week virtual workshop
February 21 – March 28, 2023
Tuesdays, 12pm – 2pm Eastern Time (New York)

Are you ready to take that next step, reflect on your leadership style and be inspired to set stretch goals?

Come join us in a new, live virtual format of Positive Leadership!  Experience connection, co-creation, learning, renewal, and global networking with a team of international facilitators and fellow international participants.

This seminar focuses on a human paradigm of leadership: the ability to connect with people you work with, to see how things look from their perspective, to engage and motivate them while appealing to their strengths and passions.

We’ll be creating a small, intimate classroom feeling, so enrollment is limited. Don’t miss this opportunity:  Register now!

What is a live online workshop?

Turn on your webcam! This program is much more than recorded videos – it’s quite the opposite. The ‘live virtual’ workshops will replicate face-to-face sessions, as if we were together in the same room. We will be dynamic, using break-out rooms, real-time polls, and interactive activities.

Check out this 2-minute video for a glimpse into the virtual workshop experience.
