This year’s all-new program provides you with more tactical learning than ever before.

Denise’s keynote examines the Seven Levels of Effectiveness, which is a road map of human effectiveness that shows who we are and where we want to go to find that new level of thinking that will help us become our best self. Current research in neuroscience and psychology supports this roadmap that provides an easy to understand comprehensive model for sustainable growth and change. Attendees will learn how to use this roadmap in their daily lives. Each attendee will receive a copy of the roadmap.

Dan's Keynote: In the film "Peaceful Warrior" a young college athlete named Dan Millman met a mysterious old service station attendant he named Socrates. After journeys around the world and study with other mentors, Dan developed a new approach to living. Dan’s presentation highlights key facets of a practical, refreshing approach to living — with a peaceful heart and a warrior spirit. Elements include • the secret of self-discipline — how to turn what you know into what you do • how to overcome fear and self-doubt • what mindfulness means • how to live in the present for a simpler, more peaceful life • accessing a warrior's spirit — with your head in the clouds and feet on the ground.

Ann’s keynote reminds us that neuroscience is more than the buzz word of the new millennium. It’s an amazing window into the complex workings of human beings, with implications for effectiveness, health, stress relief, growth, and of course, coaching and leadership. Ann discusses neuroscience in a way that helps us see humans as a complex system that includes the brain and the overall science of effectiveness. Ann will show us the neuroscience of sustainable change and lasting effectiveness, and with this knowledge, you can create and sustain change in your life using the tools and techniques she will provide.
