As a group, we’ll trade stories about how impactful leadership is about depth, not decibels, and tactics to use your voice in ways that resonate, build rapport, and get the buy-in that you need. Elevate your understanding of leadership as we celebrate the art of leading with authenticity and introspection, remembering it’s how you use your voice, not how loud it is!
