Empowerment Conversations

For Students

To reach our potential, we must be intentional about personal growth. This training series will help you understand how personal growth really works, and how you can develop your self to become a more effective and fulfilled professional, leader, and legacy builder.

In this series of 1-hour sessions, you will learn how to build up your sense of purpose and become more successful in every area of your life. We will come alongside you in your growth journey to become the person you are destined to be! Success is not a destination. It is a life-long strategy of empowerment that builds on strengths, minimizes weaknesses, and focuses on the people and points of life that are most important.


These sessions are FREE to ECEPDO students who may attend as many of these sessions as they like.
