You Can Trust Me: Communicating When No One Can See Your Face

In a time of international economic and social upheaval, it is not surprising that so many businesses struggle to establish, maintain, and grow their ideal culture; leading to poor performance – both organizationally and individually.

Over the past decade, many companies have focused heavily on business and financial measures, but neglected to emphasize the importance of team behaviors to pursue those targets. Could the potential elixir for these ailments be found within the Principled Leadership concept?

Principled Leadership says your business actions should uphold and demonstrate your core values, as well as demonstrate their application. Companies are leveraging Principled Leadership to engage the less-experienced workforce with more experienced team members to ensure their corporate culture legacy lives on. Learn how to develop the behaviors and culture that supports and sustains your business values with simple principles. This interactive workshop will engage the audience and empower professionals to apply Principled Leadership within their organization.
