Keynote Address
"Embracing the Power of Your Leadership Footprint"
Tara Brown, The Connection Coach
It has been said that 'we never touch another so lightly that we do not leave a trace.' Be inspired to examine your leadership footprint on the organizations of which you are a part of. Discover what great leaders do differently and dive into the incredible power of using positive connections to drive motivation, engagement, and performance. Hear personal stories drawn from teaching and coaching diverse populations: gang members; participants in dropout prevention programs; motivated achievers; the gifted; and more. Walk away feeling motivated and empowered to spread the message that all humans need to be seen, heard and validated.
