Leadership, Learning & Libations
a virtual book club for leaders
This month's book is:
Tuesday, April 20th @ 3pm CST
Organizations cannot grow beyond their leaders. That's why Leadership, Learning and Libations was formed. Every other month, leaders from all across the country come together to discuss a book.
Yes. Leaders read!
That's why we started Leadership, Learning & Libations. When we read together we challenge one another, inspire one another, push one another -- and grow together in ways we never thought possible.
So every 60 days, plan on shutting your door, grabbing a drink, putting your feet up on your desk and getting together with other successful business leaders to talk through one author's point of view. We'll agree, disagree, bring other data to the table and talk about how the book impacts you and your organization.
This month we're reading 500%: How Two Pioneers Transformed Productivity by Holm, Wilson and Thomson.
Please register for this event and we'll send you a Zoom invitation!
LEVEL UP LEADERSHIP
Not your typical workshop!
If you're looking for a passive, stare at a PowerPoint presentation while you multi-task webinar -- This is NOT the workshop for you!
If you want to get real, figure out how you're getting in your own way and truly become the kind of boss that people look up to, trust and want to work for -- then keep reading!
This one of a kind program immerses participants in activities & conversations that:
Level Up Leadership spans 3 days. You'll attend the workshop in the morning where you'll delve into some pretty meaty subjects. We'll send you back to work in the afternoon -- so that you have the opportunity to try on what you've been learning. And that evening there will be a little bit of homework -- so that you're prepped and ready to go the next day.
We purposefully keep our class sizes small. You'll get the personal attention you want and need. You'll be able to learn from and support your peers. And you'll build the foundation to be a member of the Level Up Tribe -- a group of leaders who continue to connect with and learn from one another, long after the workshop is over.
One more thing. We know that's it's tough to break old habits. So your Level Up Leadership investment includes two 1:1 follow up coaching sessions. Graduates can schedule these sessions any time after the workshop is over. So if you want a little 1:1 time right away -- we'll get that on the calendar. Or if you'd prefer a pick-me-up six months down the road -- we'll be there for you then as well. Our goal is to provide you with the support you'll need to ensure that the lessons "heard" at the workshop become your new habits -- tried, refined and applied.
Dates: May 24, 25 & 26
Time: 8:30am - 11:30am
*includes workshop, assessment & 2 follow-up coaching sessions
