10:30 - 12:00 BREAKOUT SESSION I - TRACKS I & II

TRACK I

TRANSFORM YOUR PERSPECTIVE ABOUT WHAT YOU HAVE TO OFFER THE WORLD THROUGH THIS EXPLORATION OF STRENGTHS-BASED DEVELOPMENT WHICH IS UNIQUE IN ITS APPROACH AND OUTCOME. 

Based on the simple notion that our greatest talents – the ways in which we most naturally think, feel and behave – represent our innate potential.  Strengths builds on one’s potential rather than seeking to shore up flaws.   

Following this powerful session, participants will leave with tools and techniques to leverage their strengths and change their world by becoming more effective in their work and everyday lives. Whether you have participated in a Strengths course before or are new to the concept, there will be something for you in this fun, engaging, interactive two-session track!
 

TRACK II

EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION FOR CHANGING YOUR WORLD

We have 60 thousand thoughts and feelings a day, and we have the power to choose how to manage them more effectively by either reacting or responding. In this session, participants will raise their conscious awareness about how the brain is wired and how it impacts emotions.  Participants will also explore how to communicate more effectively when wanting to connect with others. Participants will leave with tools and new skills for conducting necessary conversations and communicating more effectively at work, at home and in their community, so that they can impact their world!

12:15 - 1:30 LUNCH (LUNCH KEYNOTE AT 1:10)

As an Executive Coach and Business Consultant, Brenda has been helping people embrace change and transform their lives for many years. However, the journey that led her to write To Be Determined (TBD) is both inspired by her work and deeply personal. Brenda's experience with embracing, leading and living through change are woven together to paint a beautiful picture of what can be achieved when we navigate change and make it through the FOG.
