Join us for our third Leadership Series program of the year!  This event will be hosted at Valo Park (formerly Gannett/Tegna), 7950 Jones Branch Drive, McLean, VA 22102


Program Description:

Our world is changing faster than our ability to adapt. CONSCIOUS is our wake-up call – to be aware, awake, and accountable. Nothing is more important than understanding ourselves, our relationships, and our surroundings. Being conscious helps us think deeper, learn faster, and collaborate better. The more conscious we are, the faster we adapt, and the higher performing we become. Conscious is the new competitive edge!

This leadership series will focus on the skills we need as leaders to fill the growing gap between the people we have and the people we need inside of our organizations.  Our lack of awareness keeps us shallow in our thinking, narrow in our perspective, safe in our actions and small in our impact.  Instead we need to Go Deep to discover our inner selves, Think Big to see a world of possibilities, Get Real with our Accelerators and Hijackers, and Step Up to our highest potential. 


  1. Understand why Conscious Leadership is the new Competitive Advantage in a disruptive and accelerating business environment. 
  2. Build awareness of why being Smart is not enough to be an effective leader in today’s disruptive environment. Learn why ‘Conscious’ is the new smart.
  3. Understand your own Personal Accelerators (those things that push you forward) and Hijackers (those things that hold you back) in your ability to adapt and perform at the highest level.
  4. Apply Conscious Leadership tools and skills to build and broaden relationships with business leaders, ensure the connection between organizational performance and key objectives, and drive successful organizational results.
