LeadingAge New Jersey & Delaware is Proud to Partner with Drive for:

Fearless in the Face of Crisis: A Virtual Leadership Retreat (5 CEs)

Over five webinars, we will walk attendees through the 5 principles and the 30 behaviors that support exemplary leadership. And this is all tried and true, research-based information. 40 years of research has already shown us what makes great leaders, great. We want to make this information easy for attendees to translate into action. 

We want you to take this challenging time and turn it into an opportunity to stretch your skills to be your best, most fearless and exemplary, leader possible. We believe in you and we want you to believe in yourself!

All attendees will learn simple, daily actions, that take no more than five minutes, that can impact their community immediately and make leading through this time of crisis a bit more manageable.
