Leave with a solid understanding of your personal Enneagram type, along with a framework for developing emotional intelligence - the key to long-lasting, transformational change.

Roundtable Overview

Oct. 20, 2021 | 8:30 - 11:30 | Goering Center, Room 359

When you are leading a family or private business, the pressures and concerns that you shoulder are heavy, and so much is riding on how well you manage that load. Your work life impacts your home life, and your home life impacts your work life, too. All of it affects your health — your physical well being, and the health of your company’s bottom line. Our Roundtables provide an opportunity for collaborative peer sharing about strategic and tactical business issues, within the larger context of your personal and family concerns. Consider this your very own board of advisors, whose number-one goal is to help you restore balance.
