KEYNOTE: What Matters Most Now? Reflect, Reframe, Recalibrate

When was the last time you paused in the midst of all the business of life to reflect and check in? Most of us live our lives in default mode, feeling like we barely have time to breathe, let alone think deeply about what we want our life to look like.
When it comes to behavior change, many of us are focusing on ineffective sources of motivation and we aren’t asking the right questions. How might we change that, so we are more likely to become the type of people we want to be and move forward with confidence, energy and compelling intention? In this session, you will be empowered to reflect, reframe, recalibrate and reconnect to who and what matters most, so you can move forward with greater energy, fulfillment and clarity in your life and work.
