Marie Peeler
Marie Peeler helps leaders find engagement, clarify objectives, and improve interpersonal effectiveness. This workshop will focus on the creative competencies that help leaders achieve greatness. Participants will learn how assumptions and self-talk drive our creative leadership or hold us in reactive mode and how to start breaking habits of thought that do not serve your quest for leadership greatness.
