Unmute Yourself: Igniting Intentional Leadership

Rachel Druckenmiller, MS, UNMUTED

In times of so much change and continued uncertainty, we can become reactive in our interactions with colleagues and clients, communicating less effectively. By tapping into the brain science of leadership, we can become more effective, connected, high-performing leaders. In this session, we’ll identify the “power skills” necessary for effective, transformational, future-ready leadership and learn how to become more self-aware to be a better leader who effectively engages and connects with team members and clients. We’ll also discover the power of curiosity to build trust, competence and confidence and catalyze growth.


9:40 – 9:50 a.m. 



9:50 – 11:00 a.m.

11:10 a.m. – 12:10p.m.

The Art of Query

Renee Moelders, Convergence Coaching

When we ask the right questions, we uncover strategic opportunities that drive value for others. In this exercise-based session, we’ll discuss the benefits of listening more and talking less and will help you develop the ability to ask the right questions at the right time. The goal is to leave this session with the tools you need to be a better coach to your people and advisor to your clients.
