The Center for Collaborative Leadership is pleased to announce the launch of a four part leadership speaker series: Leadership on the Horizon. This series will offer insights and tools needed as managers and leaders consider how to harness the unique skills and talents of their workforce as competitive advantage in the ever-changing business environment.

The second offering of the series is Rocking the Boat Without Falling Out: Creating positive change at work in partnership with Lois Kelly and Carmen Medina of Rebels at Work. Rocking the Boat Without Falling Out will be held on November 6th from 8:00am-12:00pm at the Seaport Hotel


Creating change at work is hard work, requiring a mindset and competencies rarely taught in business schools or in the workplace. In this three-hour hands-on session Lois Kelly and Carmen Medina, authors of the new book Rebels at Work: A Handbook for Leading Change from Within, will guide you in learning how to:

  • Be a more effective change maker, helping people to see the value of your ideas and working through the often-messy steps of getting them adopted
  • Lead and develop the creative rebels in your organization, enabling them to help the organization grow and thrive vs. discredited as troublemakers
  • Develop some of the essential competencies needed to lead change and foster an engaged, collaborative, and successful workplace

Price for the session is $350/participant. Only 40 seats are available for this timely workshop. Early bird discount and package special expires 10/22. Other discounts available to groups of 3 or more.
