Dare to Lead with Laura Cooke

Saturday, October 10th,  10 AM – 12 Noon, Quaaout Lodge & Spa

We have invited Laura Cooke  – Leadership, Change and Personal Success Consultant to discuss the 4 skillsets of courageous leadership and do a deeper dive into Dr. Brené Brown’s BRAVING Trust model and how we can apply that to our lives, teams and businesses.

Leadership is not about titles or the corner office. It’s about the willingness to step up, put yourself out there, and lean into courage. The world is desperate for braver leaders. It’s time for all of us to step up.
