The threat extended beyond California, as the trial attorneys and their strategists made it clear they would use this strategy as a model across the country if successful. Defending malpractice reforms in one state become a necessity for the entire nation.

To master the art of leadership then is to work at becoming a master of how human energy systems and exchange work, and thus, how to shape, align, and focus them on change.

Our systems vacillate and transform from chaos to order, and order to chaos, leaving change in their wake. Why? This session will be a fun and engaging journey exploring several key universal laws and their application to human system dynamics and leadership

Research suggests that emotional intelligence is responsible for nearly 60% of job performance.
