    Practicing Leadership: Creating & Holding Space for Success

    Emancipet New School

    February 10, 2020 (All day) to February 11, 2020 (All day)

    Leadership is, more often than not, the lynchpin that keeps the wheels of an organization from falling off. Most of us have been sold on inspirational, natural born, and visionary leaders.

    Cultivating Kick-A** Culture

    Emancipet New School

    June 15, 2020 (All day) to June 16, 2020 (All day)

    Peter Drucker is famously thought to have said “Culture eats strategy for breakfast.” We couldn’t agree more with the sentiment. Time and again we’ve witnessed and experienced the reality of the internal culture of an organization impacting its capacity to deliver on strategy and mission.
