All registrants will have the opportunity to submit questions in advance.

Resolve to lead with “generous intent” at Jan. 26 webinar


How to Lead with Generous Intent — and Bring out the Best in Ourselves and Others

As professional communicators, we face the pressures of competing deadlines and constantly changing priorities every day. To make an impact and advance in our organizations, we need exceptional leadership skills to inspire others and get things done. But when the work doesn’t go as planned — and people on our team disappoint — even the most optimistic among us can feel cynical, judgmental and negative.

rhonda-reaghWhat would happen if we exercised “generous intent” and empathy when confronting these challenges in the workplace? What would happen if we believed the very best about those around us (instead of the worst)? What would happen to our relationships at work and at home if we learned how to “live B.I.G.”?

Join Rhonda Reagh, Ph.D., LISW, Advanced Certified Executive Coach, as she leads an honest discussion about how the stories we tell ourselves about other people influence how we see ourselves and the world around us. As a Certified Daring Way facilitator, Dr. Reagh will draw on the findings of researcher, author and TED Talk speaker Brene Brown. Attend this lunchtime webinar Jan. 26 so you can start living B.I.G. — and transform the way you communicate and lead.
