Wendy McManus is bringing her unique perspective on this topic to the Women’s Fresh Perspectives Conference speaker lineup.

Her session, “Amplify Your Impact -- Add Coaching Skills to Your Leadership Toolbox,” will clear the fog about how to employ coaching skills in day-to-day communications in the workplace. Participants will learn and practice new competencies that will make a lasting impact.

“I’ve seen firsthand how leaders who ask powerful questions and listen more effectively can help their teams develop creative solutions to taxing problems. These and other potent coaching skills can make great leaders even more effective," said McManus.

McManus joins a stellar lineup of speakers that includes Rachel Hollis, Sally Helgesen and Grace Killelea, among others, at this conference hosted by the Produce Marketing Association’s Center for Growing Talent.

"I’m honored to be a speaker at The Women’s Fresh Perspectives Conference, where participants can expand their leadership prowess while connecting with other strong, female leaders in the industry,” said McManus.

The Women’s Fresh Perspectives Conference is scheduled for April 14-16 in San Antonio, TX. For more information, including speaker lineup and registration, visit the conference website. For more information about leadership coach, Wendy McManus, visit
