A crisis is really a terrible thing to waste. - Paul Romer, Standford economist

In the face of the unprecedented disruption that now surrounds everyone, an opportunity lies before us to discover our authentic leadership and amplify our impact through a deeper presence.

This thought-provoking, inspiring virtual session will provide practical insights and strategies to use this time of chaos to strengthen your leadership. Let’s not waste this crisis as we move forward together!
