Positively Powerful: Using language to improve your confidence and increase your impact

This interactive, introspective program teaches young leaders to use their words to create positive change for themselves and the world in which they live. Attendees assess their current communication habits, identify their authentic values and beliefs, and begin to create a personal lexicon with intention. Our positive techniques help them speak from a place of strength with confidence in any situation.
