Upcoming One-Time Leadership Workshops
DiSC Behavior Styles on September 13 at 4:30 p.m.
The most successful leaders are keenly self-aware and have the ability to effectively adjust their styles to meet the demands of their different roles. DiSC profiles help us identify a leader's preferred behavioral style; think of it as a road map showing how a leader is likely to show up in different situations. We can predict how they tend to do things, such as lead others, make decisions, and communicate.

Building Connection and Community on September 23 at 6 p.m.
In a recent survey 79% of Gen Z respondents reported feeling lonely, isolated, left out and without companionship. In a world where we are more digitally connected than ever, our sense of human and authentic connection is at an all time low. In this workshop, we will explore how leaders can cultivate a sense of community, build connections, and make the world feel a little less lonely.
