Excerpt

Last year we had a great unsession on leadership and management. I would love to have that conversation again. As we all grow and experiment with leadership, how can we best learn from each other and raise each other up.

Description

I envision this as a group discussion on leadership and management. We will put our chairs in a circle and share our experiences in leadership and expose our shortcomings to one another in the hopes that we can all learn from each other’s shared experiences in leadership. This isn’t about any one tool or technology, although tools and technology might come up during the conversation. Together, we can all become better leaders.
