It’s the End of the World… What Happens Next? Leadership in Troubled Times

May 26 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm










When we think about great challenges, it’s easy to imagine that the leaders who helped had an existing set of skills that prepared them for just that moment. Newsflash: they did not.
The world’s greatest leaders simply decided to meet their challenge rather than wishing it wasn’t there.
In this session, we’ll talk about the skills you will need to get yourself and your people through this.

Who should attend: Anyone who leads a team, no matter what size!
