"Tapping into Passion - Where Am I Now & Where To Next?"

What you do (your action) matters. Who you are (your character) matters, too. And, how you show up in the world (inspired or indifferent) matters every bit as much!
This session will help you tap into the value that lives in what you do and who you are now. You’ll also explore what might come next with strategies to rekindle your passion as you move through new chapters of life - at work and beyond.
