Using the Intuitive Self to Strengthen Your Leadership Skills to Serve

Often, we view leadership as a singular action, of dispensing rules and directives from the lips of an authoritative figure. Actually, leadership is fluid and intrinsically married to service. One cannot fully understand leadership without serving, or understand service without leading. This workshop immerses participants in the idea of using the intuitive self to strengthen leadership skills. Viewers are given tools to define and describe their role of leadership; their leadership voice; and their vision necessary to stand tall as a passionate, visionary leader in industry and community.
