Lead Better: A Workshop with Marshall Goldsmith and Joshua Spodek

Level up your skills and experience leading yourself and others to:

• be considered for leadership positions
• advance and accelerate your promotion
• start your own venture or initiative where you work
• improve your relationships in business and life

Join Marshall Goldsmith, pronounced by Forbes as one of the most successful coaches in corporate America, and Joshua Spodek,
who earned such praise as “Best and Brightest” from Esquire Magazine’s Genius Issue, for an interactive, intimate leadership skills workshop.

The workshop includes exercises inspired by Marshall Goldsmith and included in Joshua Spodek's award-winning book
Leadership Step by Step, available February 16, 2017. (Admission includes FREE copy.)

Expect to learn, grow, challenge and overcome limiting beliefs. Face emotional and social challenges your business school classes didn't likely cover.
Expect to network with like-minded, purposeful, motivated peers. We will cover:

• How to make meaningful connections—with anyone, in minutes, no matter
their status, valuable in networking, interviewing, creating intimacy in teams, and more.
• How to act, communicate, and lead with empathy—with anyone, so people feel 
comfortable sharing their motivations and vulnerabilities, allowing you,
as a leader, to unleash their potential to give everything they have while delivering quality.
• How to inspire—so people you lead feel meaning, value, importance, and purpose
in their work, and want to do the work for themselves, and will want to work for you again.

You won't just learn about these skills. You will practice and do them. The exercises are:
• Practical
• Immediately useful
• Fun, and
• Engaging

You will practice
• Empathy, compassion, and to create meaning as skills
• Networking meaningfully, without résumés or cards so people want to talk to you more
