We're taking our AMA Iowa Leadership Series Workshop Virtual! (Who isn't these days?!)  We will be hosting this event via Zoom. Please watch your e-mail for the Zoom meeting URL and password to join. Before the day of the event you will also be receiving an e-mail with prework that can be completed in preparation of the event.

This interactive leadership development session is for leaders or aspiring leaders and is based on the concepts of the popular book, It Begs the Question: Learn how the best managers drive performance through Question-Centric Coaching. 

Key Takeaways

  • You'll learn how you can dramatically improve team and personal performance, exert less effort than you are investing today, and ensure the sustainability of the improvements you make.
