Leaders, who attend this highly-interactive session, will come away with tools they can use to begin transforming their workplaces into organizations where trust and respect are more than just words.

Managing Up in the Top-Down World of Business

Learn the secrets to effectively using influence, while acting with integrity and purpose.
