Description

A Hero's Journey Ain't Easy. There will be bumps in the road. This session is all about those challenges, perseverance, and the growth that comes from them.

Learn from five community leaders how they have changed & grown, and how they develop the people around them to do the same.

In this session, we will:

  • The need for change, why it's crucial to our development, how to prepare for it, and when to get started;

  • Understand how to deal with life's transitions---both the changes we prompt & those that happen to us;

  • Examine growth, where & how it happens personally & professional, and how to adopt a growth mindset.


This session will be moderated by Pink Mentor Network member, Sarah Urig. Sarah Urig is a Whole Person Coach based in Charlotte, NC.
