EVENT CANCELLED DUE TO CORONA LOCK-DOWN 2ND WAVE - SELF-LEADERSHIP IN DIFFICULT TIMES Without Self-Leadership, Life will crush you A live session with Michael Kouly!

An event in collaboration with I Have Learned Academy

How to survive and grow when you become surrounded by increasing challenges and difficulties.

An intensive leadership experience with Michael Kouly

We live in most exceptional times. As the saying goes, it doesn’t rain, it pours. All kinds of hardships - economic, financial, professional, business, social, relational, political, security, health, personal... are all coming together at the same time like a perfect storm.
Even the strongest among us need guidance, insights and encouragement on how to deal with all this pressure so that we continue our journey of survival and even growth inspite of the difficulties.
Those who are not equipped with a sprit of self leadership will not make it, at least without deep personal or professional scars.

The good news is that we can make it, but we have to tap into our hidden potential of strength so that we can make it.

The full version of this experience is a most intensive four day “simulation” that has been called the most unique leadership program in the world. However, in view of the current conditions in Lebanon, Michael Kouly has designed a special half a day program with an exceptionally affordable tuition so that the maximum number of people can attend and benefit from this rare and most needed eye-opening opportunity.

You will gain a deeper understanding of:
- Yourself as a person
- Your actual strengths  
- Your blind spots
- Your potential to successfully deal with and overcome the current and future difficulties.
- Your ability to demonstrate strength and inspire people around you at home and work.
- The mindset needed to think with intelligence and wisdom and to make the right decisions under high levels of strength.
- How to create opportunities in a state of hopelessness

Who Should Attend?
Anyone who is interested in leading themselves towards strength, resilience and self awareness, power and success. So, if you want to be inspired by your own potential and also inspire people around you and become their source of strength, this unique experience is definitely for you.

We commit to creating and delivering a remarkable experience. You, however, must also commit to believing in yourself and your worthiness and to investing in your learning and in the formation of a brighter future in these dark times.

An experience not to be missed!
