The MCE Seasonal Series is a 3x a year series of timely content that reflects changes in Leadership development. As with the seasons, the environment for Leadership growth is an evolving one that creates a reason for a leader to invest in the latest developmental training or to invigorate a specific set of skills.
This series works well together or modular. Each 'season' (Summer, Fall, Winter) offers 3 workshops, once a month. It is important to realize the relationship between the 3 workshops, however, those leaders requiring a specific discipline can target any number of MCE Seasonal Series offerings.
