Executive coaching expert Robb Frank, Ed.D. will present “Leading Beyond the Walls: Collaboration for Success,” the first in a series of professional development workshops that are being offered at Benedictine University’s Margaret and Harold Moser Center in Naperville, at 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, February 20. The development workshops at the Moser Center are designed to enhance the professionalism, creativity and productivity of organizations and businesses. “Leading Beyond the Walls: Collaboration for Success” will look at how the walls that corporations erect to protect themselves also inhibit the freedom to act when external opportunities arise. Partnerships developed outside one’s organization can improve the long-range success of one’s organization. Frank is the principal partner and CEO of Carpe Vitae, Inc., a coaching and consulting firm specializing in training, program development and leadership development for both individuals and organizations. The 150-minute seminar will be repeated at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 8, and at 9:00 a.m. on Friday, March 16. The cost per session is $125 per person.
