Leadership Essentials Workshop

Like many things in life, effective leadership will never be an exact formula; but nor should it feel mysterious or unattainable. Being a good leader is about striking the balance between task and relationship by using empathy, transparency, clear communication, humility and presence.

Time & Location

Aug 14, 2024, 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM

The Central Coast DBT Centre, T2 suite 2/34 Karalta Rd, Erina NSW 2250, Australia
