BURN BRIGHT: High Impact Leadership in High Stress Times

Exclusively for BMLI Alumnae

Friday, December 4, 2020 | 12 noon to 4:00 pm (Eastern)

For the first time ever, BMGI will be delivered as a virtual event. But don't worry, we’re still bringing you the fresh content and networking opportunities that BMLI alumnae are accustomed to.

Elite performers in every field and discipline – from athletes to artists to C-Suite leaders – understand that peak performance and productivity do not come from blindly pushing harder and harder and working longer and longer.

Sustained individual, team, and organizational excellence is built on a foundation of resilience and energy – consistent, intentional practices which create a virtuous cycle that recharges one’s energy and then positions individuals and teams to bring their best selves to every endeavor at work and at home.

Join organizational psychologist Joanne Dias, who serves as senior faculty member for CCL’s Global Markets, and reconnect with BMLI faculty Sara King and LD Bennett, as they impart researched ways to recharge yourself and your team to burn brighter instead of burning out.

The cost for this virtual program is just $495 for members/$795 for nonmembers. The nonmember rate includes a one-year WICT Executive level membership for those who are eligible.
