The Authentic Leadership Program is a 3-day, in-person leadership experience designed to deepen your self-awareness, develop your leadership identity, and enhance your communication skills. Held at the serene Ross Point Conference Center on the Spokane River, this experience has been carefully designed for personal growth and impact.
