Leading with Purpose with Chester Elton:      

Engage your people Enable your teams and Energize your leaders

The very best leaders want an organization with high levels of engagement and loyalty from their teams; they want to keep their best people.

“The best leaders I’ve ever worked with understood this happens when they develop skills that foster a thriving culture. A culture where people believe what they do matters, that they make a difference, and when it’s noticed, it’s rewarded and celebrated, says Chester Elton.

Chester will provide tools that create high-performing organizational culture. His talks are designed to:

  • Enhance each participant’s role as a powerful leader, fostering greater collaboration and communication within their teams.
