How to Be An Inspirational Leader (5/15)

Inspirational leaders somehow find a way to get more out of their people than would have seemed possible. They get great results while maintaining the engagement and excitement of their team.

Very few people are born with the charismatic leadership abilities that naturally drive those around them to dig deep to achieve their all-out best. But these skills can be learned. When you attend How to Be An Inspirational Leader, a facilitated Webinar, you’ll learn the strategies used by the most inspirational leaders of all time to ignite incredible performance from people, strategies like:

  • The secrets of motivation – what works and what doesn’t
  • Communicating your vision effectively to encourage buy-in
  • Simple motivation strategies that have a big effect on inspiration and morale
  • And more!

This workshop will be on Wednesday, May 15, 12:30–3:30 p.m. in ITE Room 456. please register by May 7.
