Join our special guest, Dr. Marta Wilson, to discover how she unleashes her inner superhero to face daily challenges and seize golden opportunities.

Attendees at this event will receive a copy of Marta's book, LEAP: Master Your Superpowers, Soar to the Leading Edge 

About the book:

Why do some people advance to the leading edge of performance, while others with similar experience and ability do not?  High performers exhibit mastery of four critical areas of life:  PERSONAL  INTERPERSONAL  ORGANIZATIONAL MOTIVATIONAL

In LEAP: Master Your Superpowers, Soar to the Leading Edge, leadership expert and CEO Marta Wilson teaches what she and her team have learned through a career of applied research: individuals with four types of mastery become superstars, and those who don’t tend to stall out without achieving their full potential.  Mastery of the four areas separate top performers from the crowd.

LEAP, or Leadership Effectiveness and Potential, is a framework that guides individuals and organizations to the leading edge of success.  Part action plan, part real-life case study, LEAP is packed with tools to help you unleash your potential.

Marta Wilson demonstrates that these areas of mastery can be developed and honed by anyone ready to take the leap.
