Self-Leadership Series

Self-leadership is about taking control of what we need to achieve. Before productivity tips and tricks can be of any real value, we must understand behavioral and cultural influences that affect how successful we are
at accomplishing what we set out to do. Self-leadership is a series of 6 2-hour classes that incorporate research, anecdotes, and introspective exercises to illustrate and examine how our actions and pre-conceived notions may be keeping us from being as productive and successful as we would like.
