In today’s world, leading an organization goes beyond productivity and output. True leaders need to motivate and inspire their teams by using empathy and through developing the strengths and passions of the individuals that comprise this unit. Today’s leader is a positive force in the world, helping to unleash the potential of each individual within his or her respective organization.
This seminar focuses on a human paradigm of leadership – the ability to connect with people you work with, to see how things look from their perspective, to engage and motivate them appealing to their strengths and passions. You will leave with practical tools that will help you become a better leader, both at work and at home.
The workshop will be led by highly experienced and qualified professionals, including the founder of the UPEACE Centre for Executive Education, Mohit Mukherjee, and Craig Zelizer, the founder and CEO of PCDN.
