Be a Brilliant Leader & Help Single Moms

Join us Tuesday, September 16th for Smart Leadership: Become a Brilliant Leader

Become a Brilliant Leader at this workshop supporting Anchorpoint Counseling Ministry. Join us on Tuesday, September 16th at the Kearns Spirituality Center for a dynamic and inspirational leadership workshop by local author Beth Caldwell. Beth will be donating the proceeds to Anchorpoint to help fund our single mom support group, SPIN.

Beth says that todays companies are struggling more than ever before with workplace issues and leadership development. If you want to have a productive and motivated workforce, if you want to produce exceptional and innovative products, if you want to out-perform your competition, then you need a team of excellent people not only to get you to the top of your industry but to help you stay there. During this practical and informative workshop, you’ll learn how to:

  • Have a team that succeeds, not a staff that sabotages
  • Create a positive work environment
  • Communicate effectively and with purpose
  • Become more decisive
  • Be comfortable with criticism
  • Appreciate your staff with simple benefits that cost next to nothing
  • Create a leadership legacy

You’ll come away with practical tips that you can implement immediately AND when you attend this inspirational and informative workshop, you’ll be supporting our local Anchorpoint Counseling Ministry. Funds raised will help support the Single Parent Information Network (SPIN) ministry at Anchorpoint. This ministry empowers single parents physically, mentally and spiritually with mentoring, advocacy, education, and other practical resources. Bring your entire team! Both MEN and women are welcome to attend this workshop. Register Online Here
