Are you getting the best out of you?

Our thinking, ability to take ownership and our behaviour are just three aspects of our personality that might be preventing ourselves from living our best life possible.  The link here gets you to reflect on these key success factors so that you can manage yourself more effectively and be the best you can be.

After all, we only have one life, so surely its best to live our best life possible?

Developing leadership skills as a life long leader. We are all leading, all of the time – leading ourselves, our families, our teams, our businesses and our communities.

The Ivy House is providing three free webinars and the details can be found below starting from 29th April.  The founder of Ivy House, Elke Edwards will discuss strategies to build a positive mindset, improve wellbeing and drive team engagement and hopefully making you feel more connected and productive than ever.  The three dates are:

1. Accessing your most powerful mind in times of massive change - 29th April at 3.45pm
2, Maintaining healthy relationships when everything around you is changing - 7th May at 3.45pm
3. How to be a truly human leader in times of crisis, 18th May at 3.45

Apparently, they are brilliant and although I have never met Elke I have registered to watch them too and you get to ask questions.

This is open to everyone across any organisation, so please do share the link to register with as many people as you would like: www.ivyhouse.co.uk/webinars

Once registered you will be sent a link and password to join the webinar via Zoom.

I hope that you enjoy what you hear
