The Power Of Conscious Leadership

Featuring Guest Speaker, Abbey Johnston

Sometimes the most radical ideas are the most simple. Distraction, disengagement, and disconnection are at all-time highs within our organizations. According to Gallup, globally this is resulting in 8.8 trillion dollars of lost productivity. The ripple effects of these dreaded D's don't stop at work - we bring them home with us. An issue of this magnitude can feel like trying to boil the ocean. It’s hard to imagine how our personal leadership impacts something so large but it does. The big change happens in the small change. You won’t want to miss this!

After this session, participants will be able to…. 

  • Define the connection between awareness and their leadership impact
  • Utilize Abbey's specific tool - right away! - to be leaders at work and at home
  • Be the leader they crave to be

About Abbey Johnston

Co-Founder & Co-Owner of AG Collaborative

“Each time a person understands and takes responsibility for their unique influence, the world becomes a better place.  It’s time to stop being afraid of who you are and own it.” — Abbey Johnston 

Generous with her laughter and humble when she drops her knowledge, Abbey is the real deal. She works daily in the leadership space to empower people – especially women – to be big in the world and unapologetic in their leadership. She’s adamant that humility and confidence are inextricably linked and both are necessary for effective influence. 

Though she hates to talk about it, Abbey is brilliant and has worked hard to harness her own skills. She is a Gallup-Certified Coach with her undergrad in Communications and Psychology from Hope College and her masters in Leadership and Communications from Gonzaga University. In 2019, Abbey completed an Executive Coaching Certification through the ECI Institute at UC Berkeley. Abbey believes our greatest opportunity for owning our influence and impact lies at the intersection of Communications + Leadership.
