Topic: "Leading to Succeed, Walking in Your Truth"
The focus of this session is to understand how the weight of negative narratives and distractions impact your journey to become a successful and effective leader. This session will illustrate some of those narratives and equip you with the tools and skills to maneuver through and around them.
The goal of this webinar will aid you to recognize the signs and share with you some anecdotes you will need, when you are confronted with questioning how to maintain your authenticity in an environment that is not always welcoming or accepting.
