Scott McGohan, CEO of McGohan Brabender
We often paint a picture of Leadership with brushes of knowledge from those who we respect and admire. We attempt to instill those assets into our own roles in a virtuous attempt to grow. Our greatest gift is most often not our ability to get results. Our greatest gift is a clear, honest understanding of ourselves. Scott McGohan, CEO of McGohan Brabender shares his story of building a life by creating a false self-based on performance and the opinions of others. Building a life from the outside in is one full of vanity, fear and egotistical arrogance. This session includes the honesty of self-reflection, the value of addressing destructive heros in your organization and the value of 5 senses in moving our roles forward with a motive of growing others.
Joe Hendershott, Hope for the Wounded LLC
Based on this presenter's firsthand experiences and ongoing research, emotional poverty has become a deterrent to academic success. Research shows that almost half the nation's children have experienced trauma, which has a profound impact on their behaviors and/or learning. Educators must have a basic understanding of the social/emotional needs of children of trauma in order to reach them, teach them, and avoid using ineffective strategies and consequences that would only cause further frustration to all parties involved. This session will expand on the information contained in Dr. Hendershott's keynote session and provide doable strategies for working with children beyond at-risk.
Panel Facilitator: Amaha Sellassie
During this session participants will join community leaders in an intimate discussion how authentic and intentional relationships can serve as a steady undercurrent to overcoming trauma.

Nora Stanger, Sinclair Community College
