Today’s “new normal” demands authentic leaders who are grounded and yet reflective. Many of us go through life without a rhythm of both reflecting and discerning. Join us as we learn how leaders can grow and contribute to the flourishing of our families, organizations, and culture during a time of crises.

This lecture is livestream only. A free livestream of this lecture will be available to view @ 12 noon Eastern on December 3.
