By knowing your true color, learn how to improve your communication, appreciate others, and leverage your style to build and maintain effective teams and relationships with others.

Habitudes: Thermostat vs. Thermometer

People are either thermometers or thermostats. They will merely reflect the climate around them or they will set it. Leaders develop values and principles to live by and set the tone for others. This workshop will take a look into what it means to be a leader through the lens of Dr. Tim Elmore, author of Habitudes: Images that Form Leadership Habits and Attitudes.
