Next we will look at key ingredients in survival including relationship, emotional and physical health. We will spend some time assessing our Wheel of Health and look at how you can take steps to improve your health. Leadership is all around and even in retirement, your role as a leader is valuable. We will conclude with exploring leadership traits using the trilateral leadership ledger. Personality types will be explored through well-known cartoon characters, while exploring how everyt ype of person may find the right fuel to keep their bounce.
