Program Details:   


Please join us for the February 2017 IFMA Central PA program in Harrisburg hosted by PHEA.  The program will focus on how Leadership is not about a fancy title at work or winning community awards; it's about who you are and how you interact with others.  Leadership is about making a difference in the lives of others ~ and leaving a legacy. This presentation will explore the fundamentals of growing in leadership by lifting others through Servant Leadership.  It will challenge participants to explore new approaches to leadership at home; in the workplace; and in their communities.  Insights and information will be complemented by open dialogue and resources will be provided.
