I won’t often use this blog to promote products or events, but because this blog is about leadership development, it makes sense to let you know about opportunities you can attend that will help you lead with confidence and competence. Today, I want to give you three reasons why you should consider attending one of 14 YOU Lead events that will occur across the United States and Canada.
1. YOU Lead events provide an opportunity to grow personally. In her book, The Four Dimensions of Extraordinary Leadership, Jenni Catron says, “Extraordinary leaders learn to lead themselves first.” At YOU Lead events, you’ll receive tools to equip you, whether you lead in the church, the marketplace, or in your family.
2. YOU Lead events provide an opportunity to network with like-minded women. Whether you connect with a breakout leader or another attendee, you will have the opportunity to be surrounded by other women who have similar passions and desires to lead with excellence. Even the meal time provides an opportunity for you to discover and network with others who share something in common.
3. YOU Lead events provide an opportunity for your leadership team to connect and grow together. Have you attended a leadership event in the past and found it was hard to communicate what you learned when you returned home? We encourage women to bring their entire leadership team so they can experience all of the breakout opportunities, spend time debriefing what they’ve learned, and return together with a new excitement to lead like never before.
