The Alliance is hosting a leadership workshop before the CWCRC, Dana Point Conference. It is open to anyone interested and will feature keynote speaker, Almon Gunter.
Keynote Speaker: Almon Gunter — Lead From the Front
Almon is an exceptional, high energy presenter and passionate. He will resonate with all attendees with varying career backgrounds and experience. He will be touching on coaching teams and being a leader.
Following the keynote, we will have table collaboration which will be on 7-leadership traits. (key part of Almon’s message): Vision, Communicate the Vision, People Skills, Character (men and women of character), Competent, Boldness and Servants.
Our panel speakers are each passionate about leadership and teams. How has their leadership evolved? What successes and pitfalls have they encountered while building and leading teams? What tools have they found to stay focused to win? If we’re lucky, the panelists may share their personal “Super Freak Way”.
