The Power of Reflection

2020 has likely felt like both the longest and fastest year. But suddenly, we’re nearing 2021 and much of what brought us down in 2020 is persisting. So, how can we reflect and prepare for what’s to come?

We have learned that reflection is one of the most powerful tools to have while developing as leaders. It’s easy to get stuck on the mistake we made and dwell on the things we could’ve/should’ve done differently. In this webinar, you’ll learn about the power of reflection and tools to leverage it on your leadership and growth journey.
