Leading through Generosity

December 14, 2021
12 pm – 1:30 pm

Leading through generosity is an important skill for business owners to acquire. More often we’re seeing employees and customers interested in learning about how companies give back to their communities and fulfill their social responsibility. Join us for December’s Toolkit Tuesday as Givesome CEO Sue Wigston explores the role that generosity plays in leading effectively.

In this interactive session, we will explore:

  • Different ways to model generosity in your business
  • What the habits of generous people are and how those habits can positively impact your employees and customers
  • Simple ways to give back that will have the greatest impact in your community
