Leadership Lessons in the Keys of Life

Leaders are made not born.  We all have a leadership story full of major life events, highlights, low points and forks in the road.  It is these vital experiences that make us uniquely who we are as leaders.  At the same time, music is the “Universal Language of Mankind”.   It’s the great uniter amongst people and uniting is an essential skill set of a great leader.

In this fun and interactive session, you will develop the playlist of music that tells the story of your remarkable life and has influenced you as a leader.  Walk away with another tool in your kit to use in describing what makes you fabulous.  You will hone in on your leadership style and further refine your brand and superpower.  Along the way you will share with other remarkable women and leave with adding some new sheros to your network and community…all united through the power of song.
