Leaders are surrounded by people and yet sometimes it is a very lonely place to be. Welcome to The Leaders Community (TLC), where leaders are given the “TLC” they need to build resilience and refuel themselves to face today’s challenges! TLC is a place where you can grow your leadership capacity while you create the connections and gain the confidence you need to thrive.

Join the TLC as we dive into Emotional Intelligence: 2021’s Essential Skill.

The past year has left many of us exhausted, struggling and cranky. As leaders how do we hold space for our tired teams when we too are feeling burned out? Emotional intelligence helps understand our own emotions and the emotions of those around us. It’s key to leading with compassion, navigating critical conversations, and building resilience as a leader. As we move beyond the pandemic, cultivating a way forward with specific strategies to create greater connection is critical.
