    Tuesday, April 7, 2015 - Leading with Purpose: The Soul of Leadership
    Facilitator: Dr. Kathy Humphrey

    Do you ever reflect on what enlightens you? What sparks you? What engages you? On the quest to become a great leader, you possess the ability to connect, with your employees, your organization, but primarily with yourself. These connections are vital to your fulfilment of leading with your ‘soul'. The soul of a leader is in the Knowing, Being and Doing. During this lively session, you will engage in reflecting, thinking, growing your own dynamic qualities and infuse the energy to create a positive aura in your life. Join in engaging discussion on how to use your ‘soulful' gifts, talents, and specially-designed tools to create the leader in you - the very essence of who you are - who you desire to become.

    Tuesday, May 12, 2015 - Unlocking the Power of Your Creative Edge: Staying Inspired!
    Facilitator: Dr. John Stanko

    Do you feel stifled and bored in your daily work? Are you having fun while you work or in your life? Do you even believe that is possible? During this highly interactive session you will identify the gremlins that keep you from expressing your creativity, imagination, and curiosity, and which are often the same gremlins that prevent you from finding and flowing in your life purpose. Learn how to unleash, stimulate, stretch, and guide your creativity - personally and professionally.
