Whether you manage clients, co-workers, or just your own time, this series is for you.

Join us for this brand new Insight Studio series designed for you and the members of your team that have asked for leadership development, specific management skills and how to drive results through effective communication.

Part 1: Uncover your leadership identity

Some leaders use a tough, direct approach to motivate their team while others go with humor or paternalistic styles. This Insight Studio conversation will discuss how to discover your authentic leadership identity and use it to motivate others.

You won’t want to miss this conversation where we’ll cover topics like:

  • How to create your leadership brand identity
  • Improving accountability with your communication style
  • What do you do when imposter syndrome overtakes you

Our first session will end with the opportunity for the audience to ask questions of our panel of respected leaders.
