Saturday, March 15, 10am - 4:30pm

My one-day seminar “How to Lead People So They Want You to Lead Them Again” uses exercises, discussion, and lecture to teach how to lead people so they thank you for leading them and want you to lead them again. It follows up and complements my two-day seminar “Leadership Through Emotional Intelligence and Self-Awareness.”

As one attendee said: “I signed up for Josh’s leadership seminar not really knowing what to expect. I walked away with a clear, understandable framework not only for providing effective leadership, but for creating lasting and meaningful relationships with colleagues and teammates. Josh’s method of emotional connection gets to the core of the needs we all share as human beings. His techniques can help anyone become a better leader – and a more fulfilled person overall.”
