ISLC 2021

Take Your Next Step

March 25-27

"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step" – Lao Tzu

Are you ready to take your next step? Where will the next step take you? Do you know where you want to go? It is ok to not have the answers to these questions yet. Leadership is a series of many steps – some steps lead you on a path you plan to take, some steps may surprise you, some steps may feel uncomfortable at first, but every step allows you to grow as a leader.

Take that next step with ISLC 2021 and join us to prepare for your next step as a leader!
