    Duquesne University Breakfast Series Focuses on The Resilient Leader

    The next Leadership Breakfast Series of the Duquesne University School of Leadership and Professional Advancement will explore The Resilient Leader: Overcoming the Challenges of Leadership--Improving Quality of Life.

    Good leadership is recognized as hard work that can be emotionally, psychologically and physically demanding, said guest speaker Dr. Marc Tinsley, founder of Fitness For The Rest of Us. "Today's leaders are beginning to understand that taking better care of yourself, increasing vitality and building resiliency can actually help you perform better at work, give you a competitive advantage and help you become a more successful leader," said Tinsley, who helps people remove obstacles that interfere with their health, happiness and success.

    The session on Tuesday, Nov. 5, will meet in the Power Center Ballroom West from 8 to 10 a.m., with breakfast served at 7:30 a.m. The $45 cost includes breakfast, handouts and parking.

    For more information or to register, contact Linda Hirsh, program assistant, at 412.396.4434.

    The Leadership Breakfast Series is an educational and networking event designed to inspire successful leadership by exploring leading-edge topics.
