Renewing Passion, Avoiding Burnout

Success is more than opening one box and closing another.  It is about the Journey and how we get there. In today's fast-paced world it is about managing ourselves, others and time. That can be tough to do in this fast-paced, information-overload world. This workshop will give tools and practical ideas on managing leadership stress that you can take home. Bring your tools with you and we can learn from each other as well.
