Top of the Heap Leadership: How to Successfully Lead with Power and Heart




I have been in corporate Leadership Development for over 20 years.  16 of those years also in Patient Transportation.  Leadership is something we all need to be successful , but it is rarely taught.  As we promote employees up the ladder, are we equipping them with the necessary knowledge to excel?  In my experience with three separate companies, that answer is a resounding “no”.   Join me in this opportunity to empower them in the area of leadership.

Learning Objectives:

  1. You are a LEADER! Like it or not!
  2. Who did you learn Leadership from?
  3. Did that mentor teach you how to be or how NOT to be?
  4. Put Leadership into practice every day everywhere!


   International Journal of PATIENT TRANSPORTATION
