Challenges addressed

    How to navigate ambiguity and uncertainty, manage impatience, and give it meaning?
  2. Session 2: Nurturing my relationships within my work environment
    Alone, we go faster; together, we go further." What do your relationships look like... with your colleagues, collaborators, and partners?
  3. Session 3: My sphere of influence and performance
    What do we say yes to, what do we say no (or not now) to stay in our zone of excellence?


Surrounded by peers from various organizations, address issues and themes related to your reality and professional challenges. Experience the power of synergies and shared experiences to act confidently on a daily basis. Leave the circle with new ideas, innovative concepts, and new research applicable immediately.

Participants from different organizations form a learning group. Each brings their own professional challenges and concerns.
