Concerned or confused about how to lead in our changing work environment? You are not alone. Yet every challenge is an opportunity, and high-velocity leadership skills will help you innovate and inspire as you navigate today’s complicated workplace challenges.

The issues confronting leaders over the last number of years have been extraordinary: running hybrid organizations, keeping people connected virtually, managing employees’ uncertainty, supporting more meaningful work, and combining organizational purpose with profit. This course is designed to reinvigorate you and your organization with these challenges in mind. Informed by contemporary best practices, business research, and industry guest speakers, we will help you shed the habits of conventional top-down leadership to instead become a collaborative transformer.

Throughout this experiential course, we will discuss current leadership challenges and provide adaptive decision-making tools. We will include interactive exercises and create cohort connections to share experiences, relevant practice, integration, and accountability. You will cultivate an authentic leadership identity and activate your unique leadership gifts and talents. Together we will reduce limiting beliefs to enhance resilience, learn a model to improve conscious communication and collaboration, and develop mental, emotional, and physical strategies for greater vitality.
