The Relationship-Driven Leader

Because People Do Business With People They Like
(and hire, and promote, and recommend, and…)

APRIL 26, 2019 | 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM


This program is designed for mid-level working professionals and is available for open enrollment. It is also available as part of our certificate programs.


Your ability to create meaningful and lasting relationships directly impacts your success regardless of your role – from corporate executive to company employee to business owner to job seeker.  Growing a larger network with stronger relationships increases your value, influence and impact.

Learn how you can become a leader who attracts and engages an eager, committed team!  Expand your referrals, shorten the sales cycle and close deals on relationships not price.  And when opportunities arise, be the first in mind and someone they want to say ‘yes’ to!


  • Excel in making new and lasting connections
  • Make a strong, positive first impression (especially in interviews)
  • Create a personal brand that boosts your visibility and impact
  • Build trust to improve productivity, morale, loyalty and retention

*The Thinking Preferences Assessment (TPA) by NBI® is an online assessment each participant will be required to complete prior to the program. The results of the TPA profile assessment will show your Individual Thinking Preferences – that is, which part of your brain you prefer to exercise the most in thinking and learning. Your brain profile gives an indication of how you prefer to communicate, manage, learn, teach, lead, solve problems, make decisions, form relationships and many more aspects of life.
