Presenter: Bruce McLellan
Have you ever achieved great success only to feel that something is missing or to wonder what's next or to experience a lingering sense of ennui? You are not alone. I have heard many people say that it's lonely at the top, but I no longer subscribe to the belief that it is necessary, particularly meaningful or even slightly helpful for that matter. Please, join me, Coach Bruce Wayne McLellan, on a journey to the Grand state of Maine, to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro, and then deep into your authentic self as we explore the spirit of leadership as it is arising in all human beings.
Three key learnings the audience will take away from this program:
- Steps to enhance Self-Awareness
- TO-DO list to improve overall happiness
- A recognizable pattern to work towards a lasting success
