All of us can be our professional and personal best if we are cared for emotionally. This inspiring presentation shines the light of reality on the importance of being conscious of life’s balances, caring for and respecting ourselves, appreciating our families and colleagues, practicing effective time management skills, and finding new ways to advocate for the causes we care about. This session is seasoned with personal stories, heart-warming anecdotes, and uplifting messages to engage the participants to feel deeply about the importance of their work.

Key Learning Points:

  • Strategies for introspection – reflecting on why we’ve chosen the path we’re on – how to reduce stress and maximize our personal assets
  • The changing demographics of the family – balancing the challenges and opportunities of our four generational families and communities
  • Technology: Tool vs. Tyranny – controlling and managing the urge to be in immediate touch by practicing the art of truly communicating
  • Time management skills – making the most of our minutes, hours and days
  • Relationship building for positive results – the importance of active listening and kindness in developing strong bonds in families in and the workplace
  • Understanding our many diversities…cultural, economic and age…to develop true team-building and create new partnerships in the community
  • Leveraging our expertise for policy development – the role of permissible advocacy for professionals and volunteers – the rules of the advocacy road
