You Have What it Takes to Be a Resilient Leader

A Conversation with Felicia Logan and Bob O'Neill: Staff Meetings that Create Organizational Engagement

  • If your staff meetings are dull and uninspiring, if your team members question the usefulness of meetings, or if you find yourself trying to avoid staff or team meetings, this session will provide you with specific skills to improve meetings and engagement inside your organization.
