What does it mean to bring our whole selves to work? How can we more thoughtfully invest in the growth of the people around us? At the same time, how can we more intentionally and effectively pursue our own personal growth as leaders?

 

Industrial-organizational psychologists, Dr. Rob McKenna and Dr. Daniel Hallak, mine more than four decades of research and centuries-old wisdom to present a fresh, countercultural paradigm of whole leader development. During this innovative workshop, McKenna and Hallak will show that it is possible to erase the superficial boundaries we erect between our families, workplaces, and communities. In reality, the vitality of our leadership in different spheres is a function of viewing ourselves as whole people, committed to holistic renewal.

 

Beyond inspiring leaders, McKenna and Hallak will share processes and systems that enable people to make substantive progress. Their simple, scalable process for developing whole leaders is grounded in research and has been proven to empower leaders to be more effective, adaptable, and directed in the marketplace and faith spheres.

 

Following the main session, attendees will choose from one of two breakout sessions. (Lunch is provided during the main session.*)
