Learning from the Past, Designing for the Future 

Leadership is influence.  

To influence, you need to connect.  

To connect you need to understand yourself and others.  

At this event, we will begin with your understanding of you and begin to teach you how to understand others in a new way! 

Imagine strengthening your power to influence!

71% of companies do not feel their leaders are able to lead their organization into the future.

As a woman, you have the qualities companies are seeking in their leadership! There is every reason in place for you to gain influence and earn a position of greatness in your chosen field.

Come to our event and let us show you how to discover your scientific "naked truth". 

We will guide you to activate the 4 Factors that contribute to your ability to influence others.

We will guide you to clarify your language, action, and thoughts to strengthen your ability to reach your goals.

We will help you build your personal and professional brand and gain a new understanding of how to influence excellence for you and others.

We have an experience of a lifetime waiting for you at Lake Tahoe!
