July 6, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am

Are you getting frustrated with what leaders say vs what leaders do?

Are you ready to get real and face the leadership crisis we are witnessing right now?

Join us for an eye-opening event that will redefine your understanding of leadership in these challenging times. 


It will be an interactive discussion, a candid exploration, and a redefinition of leadership. This is an invitation to redefine the role of leadership, not just in theory but in practice. 


In the session we’ll unpack, share and give you insights:

  • Bridging Theory and Practice: Explore the disconnect between what leaders are doing and what science tells us about effective leadership. 
  • Learn from Experts: Engage in thought-provoking conversations with seasoned leadership experts who will bring a human and neuroscience perspective to the crisis. 
  • Unpack Solutions: Discuss actionable solutions that you can take back to your workplace, contributing to change and transformation. 
  • Interactive Discussion: Join in a robust Q&A session that ensures your burning questions get answered. This is your chance to shape the conversation.
  • Synergistic Approaches: Learn how to work synergistically, bridging the gap between leadership and the front line for greater productivity and satisfaction.
