Leadership and Risk Takingregisterbutton_default.jpeg

Dr. Tonya Jackman Hampton

Everyone has fears.  Throughout our lives we develop pattern-recognition programs and habits in response to specific things that catapult us into an emotional response. To transcend away from the typical flight or fight response and be open to taking risk, leaders have to create positive solutions, adopt behaviors and strategies to transform our relationship with fear.
This session will teach the audience how to connect with their fears, strategize responses, and transform their outcomes.
