    Leadership & Management Skills for Women

    April 28 & May 4

    Great leaders bring out the best in others because they know how to build trust, encourage confidence, and command respect. Most importantly, great leaders inspire others to follow their initiatives, adapt their ideas and perform above and beyond their own capabilities on a regular basis. What is it that makes a leader and what separates the good from the great? How can you become a more powerful, effective and respected leader? This seminar will explore and examine what makes a great leader. You will learn how to bring the best out of your people, and lead from a position of firmness, fairness and quiet strength. Additionally, you will be empowered, inspired, and you will experience a boost in your confidence as a leader.
