In 2016, I had the opportunity to speak to a vibrant group of America's First Federal Credit Union employees on creating "The Mindful Workday." Y'all - these guys were so much fun! Corporate Wellness and speaking engagements are a big part of my business and it is such a joy when people attending the sessions are open minded and engaged. We talked about simple changes anyone can make to help reduce stress and feel present throughout the workday. Everyone was such a great sport - even when I asked them to move through some desk yoga!
So, when AmFirst invited me back for the 2017 Employee Engagement Conference, I was THRILLED. When they told me I would be speaking to 162 people, I was like WHOA...that's a lot of people. Can I even do that?
95% of being an entrepreneur is asking that question, daily; then digging deep to answer back, OF COURSE YOU CAN.
Nothing soothes my nerves like feeling prepared! Whether it's planing ahead for a workshop or prepping for my week with a fully stocked kitchen, it helps me feel a sense of balance and achievement. So, despite feeling a little overwhelmed, I got to work on my presentation, Creating Sustainable Change. In the session, I planned to discuss elements that shape our conditioned behaviors, realistic goal setting, and my top tips for kickstarting REAL change. I want you guys to benefit from this preparation and tips as well, so I'm sharing them here.
