In this webinar, Scott will explore the value of good leadership, what leadership truly is, and how to become a better leader.

About this event

Two things that Indigenous tribes of the United States value are dance and leadership. In this webinar, Learn the Leadership Dance!, Scott will emphasize the importance of leadership against the background of his observing the dances practiced by his own Santa Clara Pueblo in New Mexico. By participating you will understand the value of good leadership, what leadership truly is, the basics of how to lead and how to become a better leader, and be inspired to create a culture of leadership in your own “village”! Don’t miss this opportunity to Learn the Leadership Dance!

Note: This event is offered IN-PERSON at the Lobo Rainforest Building or VIRTUALLY via Zoom. If you choose to attend virtually, a meeting link will be sent to you ahead of the event.
