Meet the Presenter: Cy Wakeman

Cy Wakeman is a drama researcher, global thought-leader and New York Times best-selling author who is recognized for cultivating a counter-intuitive, reality-based approach to leadership. Backed by more than 25 years of unparalleled experience, Cy’s philosophy offers a new lens through which employees and executives alike can shift their attention inward, sharpen their focus on personal accountability and uncover their natural state of innovation simply by ditching the drama. Deemed “the secret weapon to restoring sanity to the workplace,” she has helped countless companies learn to navigate our rapidly changing world using good mental processes to harness energy wasted in workplace drama and reinvest that effort into achieving profound business results.

This opportunity is funded through a partnership with County Social Services CARES funding to provide training for essential workers in the Northeast Iowa Region.
