My Leadership Journey Workshop with Mark Rittenberg

In this interactive session with Dr. Mark Rittenberg and the Leadership Communications team you will have a chance to creatively reflect on the professional and personal experiences that have made you the leader you are right now. You will delve into the authenticity of your leadership, the heart & meaning of your experience as an individual and define who you are right now and who you want to be. In this experiential and community building session you will deepen connections in your cohort through storytelling and celebrate yourself and others.
This will serve as an anchor for reflection for you, a celebration of what has happened in the past three years, and a springboard into your future.
