Are you interested in learning what it means to be a global leader? Do you want to understand different cultural perceptions on leadership and gain self-awareness of your own leadership style? Or are you questioning how to ethically lead in an ever-growing global society?

The Global Leadership Retreat is a three-day, two-night weekend with interactive workshops designed to create an environment for individuals to explore what leadership means in their own and other cultural contexts, share experiences, and discuss the meaning of leadership within the context of a globalizing society. The workshops create a safe climate for sharing activities. Participants need to come prepared to actively participate in activities by sharing views, attitudes, beliefs and experiences openly and honestly.

The Cultural Leadership Retreat will take place from Friday, October 17th at 9:00am until Sunday, October 19th at 3:00pm.
