Join this 60-minute online seminar to learn how you can lead your team and business through these trying times. 

Crisis. Commotion. Confusion. Do you and your team thrive or wither in this environment – and what makes some flourish? 

What happens in these situations is fascinating. Whilst many organisations are struggling to survive, there are some that will come out of this stronger than before. The power of positive psychology and the ability to get everyone on the bus is pivotal in ensuring your business survives. 

Starlight has weathered many challenges in the past decades, but has under Louise’s leadership kept going from strength to strength. 

In this online seminar, Louise will share her knowledge and observations and explain how to lead with decisiveness and transparency.  

Key takeaways: 

  • Flounder or flourish? How you can manage this 
  • Leading with consistency, clarity and confidence through uncertainty 
  • Using positive psychology – resilient individuals  and a resilient organisation
