The Psychology of Success is an inspirational presentation about the emotional and relational keys to effective leadership. Through motivational storytelling and thought-provoking case examples, Marter engages participants in lively discussion and interaction about psychological and interpersonal skills needed for success in leadership.

• Develop tools to detach from ego and judgement to observe from an open and neutral place and gain perspective for effective, non-reactionary and intentional leadership

• Develop the confidence to lead as you are

• Practice communication skills (i.e. active listening, empathy, assertiveness, and problem-solving) for effective collaboration and teamwork

• Develop effective conflict resolution skills including specific tools for dealing with difficult people
