This series of virtual workshops, facilitated live by Geordie Aitken of Aitken Leadership Group (ALG), will address the primary challenges facing leaders and managers in the AE industry in these uncertain times.

Each virtual workshop will focus on the specific tools needed to work, live and connect effectively in the midst of ongoing change, with a particular emphasis on the emotional self-mastery needed to lead and influence remotely.

As ever, Geordie’s driving question is: “How do we create a life that works?” This question matters now, more than ever, as all of us are challenged to reset our ’systems’ for getting work done, staying healthy, and staying connected with the people in our lives — personally and professionally.

Each workshop will include a ‘cross-country check-up’, wherein Geordie will interview AE leaders from across the US, as well as participatory exercises (to make the learning stick) and Geordie’s trademark teaching style — complete with humor. Graduates of ACEC’s Senior Executives’ Institute and Pathways to Executive Leadership will value the reframing of core Personal Mastery mental models as they pertain to increasing personal resilience and influence in a rapidly changing business environment. All AE professionals will appreciate Geordie’s industry knowledge and holistic approach to leadership skill development.

The workshops can be taken individually or as a series.
