Volunteer Campbell River has two great workshops coming up in October.

Purposeful Conversations

Exploring and Understanding Leadership…A Personal and Professional Seminar; Wednesday, Oct. 5; 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

About the workshop:

This presentation will encourage you to participate in a discussion about leadership at home and in the workplace. Dr. Ross believes the concept of leadership is complex and often misunderstood in our society. Through storytelling and discussion Patrick facilitates a dialogue that is thought provoking and applicable to participants both at the personal and professional levels. Better understanding the attributes of leadership has the potential to assist you toward being a better person and a better worker. Professional organizations benefit greatly by promoting leadership and engaging employees to explore opportunities to enhance their own leadership skills.
