Leadership Drive is for leaders eager to grow. Join this monthly conversation about a relevant leadership topic to grow in knowledge, learn from others, and identify ways to stretch yourself. The CX virtual environment is comfortable for open discussion and sharing.
Whether you are a manager or project leader, new entrant to the workforce with company leadership on the horizon, an entrepreneur leading in a variety of ways, or an executive, you are welcome to join Leadership Drive. Each month includes an introduction to a role model worth knowing about, strategic career management tips, and discussion of a topic related to leadership within a team or company. There are breakouts for small groups so the conversation can go further than Q&A.
