The Center for Leadership Excellence presents a Day of Learning with Matt Miofsky.
“You don’t have to do it alone.” That’s the first message Matt Miofsky wants his readers and listeners to hear. Change may be a constant, but we can learn to navigate it together … with a God who is with us every step of the way.
Join us for this Day of Learning as we learn strategies for navigating change and think about what it means to lean into the future without fear.
