Building Leadership Candor One Conversation at a Time

For leaders, every conversation is an opportunity to strengthen a relationship, remove barriers, find a solution, or change a life. This involves showing up with candor, courage and empathy. Candor is getting real and having meaningful and respectful conversations. This workshop is for formal or informal leaders, ready to expand their communication and leadership impact. Learning outcomes include expanding self-knowledge, deepening inquiry skills, and building personal authority and the capacity to voice authentically and clearly.
