Using a blend of personal experiences, humor, and real-life examples, Dave will demonstrate and lead the attendees in digging deep to examining their own personal lives and feelings, with the intent of transforming their internalization process, thus developing a stepping stone to building, reinforcing, and transforming their professional organizational and individual leadership skills.
