Why Attend

The Leadership Challenge Continues® Workshop is an innovative and flexible program that encourages leaders to remain focused on what they learned during their exposure to The Five Practices Model.

Emotional Intelligence (EI), team building, and creativity will be discussed as being critical elements for living the Five Practices. Are you up to the challenge?
