$30 for members. $30 for non-members. Free for students.

We are all “One in a Zillion” and once we recognize that fact and realize our potential positive impact on others, our true leadership potential can be realized.

This highly interactive intentional workshop has been designed to stimulate participants of all levels to reach out for all the leadership abilities they possess and achieve their full potential. It is a fun and insightful experience where each participant is challenged to expand their comfort zones and to productively interact with other participants. It is an engaging, captivating and rewarding training event.

Based on principles taken from the Dale Carnegie Course, the workshop encourages participants to take a personal traits inventory and then to grow other people by pointing out strengths found in others. Participants will learn an easy and valuable process to maximize networking opportunities and strengthen relationships at the same time. Leadership is a dynamic journey and not a one-time training experience. Each participant will set goals for enhancing relationships beyond the training workshop experience.

6:00pm - 7:00pm (Central Time)

Free for students. If you are a student, please register through your school's accounting department.

No fee for members who pre-register. $30 fee for non-members. Please make sure to register or cancel in advance as a $30 walk-up fee, and a $30 no-show fee will be assessed.
