Exploring Servant Leadership with Colleen Sullivan E5

Developing and sustaining a culture of robust process improvement and trust requires a supportive learning environment, quality communication and leadership that models the way. Colleen has been supporting and guiding organizations through that journey for over 20 years.  She has provided executive coaching to over 3,000 C-Suite executives, designed and facilitated over 6,000 meetings and presented 4,000 leadership communication sessions.  Her executive coaching and leadership communication sessions have been sought out by fortune 50 companies, senior military leaders as well as hospitals and clinics worldwide.

She incorporates leading-edge disciplines and tools, including Conversational Leadership to foster sustainable change. Join us for a conversation that explores what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur, and maybe more importantly how to be one of the best role models for what it takes to raise amazing kids that I know.
