Experience leadership in a new light as Cindy Petersen, executive director of the Taubman Museum of Art, walks us through a discussion about art and creativity in our lives and workplace. We’ll step outside the “crayon” box (after a tasty lunch) and participate in an interactive session designed to strengthen teams with creative problem-solving skills. You’ll also get an exclusive tour of the art gallery before heading back to work with a new perspective.
