As a result of this presentation, leaders will:
  • Learn why your ego is not your amigo
  • Realize the flip side of success
  • Learn how to control the ego and not let it control
  • Develop practices for “letting go” of the ego
  • Discover why soul is the real goal
  • Optional takeaway: Leading with Wisdom: Sage Advice from 100 Experts book by Jann Freed

Leading With Wisdom:
Sage Advice From 100 Experts

This book is for anyone in a position of influence in an organization, or those who train these individuals. It’s also for those who feel they are drowning in information, but starving for wisdom about what behaviors nurture people, organizations, and communities at large. Discussing her research process with these experts, Jann says, “When I asked about leadership they told me about life.”

This book helps leaders integrate the best of themselves and their lives into the tasks and roles of leaders.
