From Successful to Satisfied: How To Become The Leader You Want To Be
Leaders at every level have to deal with a sobering reality: the world has changed more in the last five years than in the last fifty. What worked in the past, will often fail with customers and colleagues today and you must achieve more with less time, less resources and higher stakes. Plus, the more successful you become, the harder it is to change.
Mel will explain how rapid change has impacted your role as a leader and guide you through the process of identifying key areas and opportunities to raise your professional game.
Mel utilizes social science research, peer-to-peer coaching exercises, audience interaction and captivating videos to teach you what it takes to move from being merely successful to being deeply satisfied with work, life and the impact you make in the world.
You’ll leave this motivational experience with key objectives for professional and personal growth, and the knowledge and inspiration to become the leader you want to be.
