Designed for all employees who desire results and who want to make a difference in their workplace, Leading Self Influencing Others is a two-day workshop. We recommend a group size of 6 – 20 participants. This instructor-led, classroom-based/remote workshop will ensure participants receive hands-on training with real-life applications.



Each participant is provided a workbook with reference materials and completes assessment tools before and during the program. Each participant also creates additional materials, personalized to his or her own workplace situation. The combination of these three elements creates a reference manual that is used throughout the year.
