Every one of us can improve our leadership skills.  This session discusses timeless leadership lessons learned from a seemingly unusual place - the dance floor.  The parallels between business and dancing are striking; you need good partners, you must cooperate, someone must lead, someone must follow, you need to practice, you may step on someone else’s toes, and the leader does not have to be attractive.  This session examines what made Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, two of the most famous dancers in the world, so successful. These leadership lessons from the dance floor can help you be a more effective leader.

Join us and learn many timeless leadership lessons that successful businesses employ every day.
