Ahead of the Pack: Staying focused, Fulfilled and Connected

Wed, Mar 28, 2018

1:00 PM - 3:00 PM ET

Members Only

While leadership can, and should, be practiced from whatever seat one occupies, the job of the senior leader can often feel likely lonely work. But it doesn't have to. In this webinar, we will identify ways to distinguish between loneliness and solitude; discuss how to develop both allies at work and confidants beyond the organization; and identify the value of establishing boundaries and managing those boundaries. We will also discuss ways of enrolling others in your powerful vision for change!
