Georgian College’s Mindful Leadership Workshop Series

Thursday June 27 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

The Barrie Chamber of Commerce has partnered with Georgian College to bring mindful leadership and sales training to you! These one-day workshops are for local executives, entrepreneurs, and team leaders, and will be conveniently held at the Barrie Chamber of Commerce office.


Leaders are the major influencers of innovation for every organization. Frontline leaders manage individual contributors and are the conduit for up-to-date knowledge, business challenges, and information about your customers.

This course provides a practical approach, and tools and techniques, to help leaders and their teams think differently about how they work and to help them generate new ideas that add value to your organization and your customers. Leaders also learn what they can say and do to foster innovation with their teams.
