Wednesday, January 13: Create an Emotionally Intelligent Team Culture in the New Year with Romy Solomon `11

What to expect:

Now, more than ever, we need leaders to act not just with strength and direction, but with compassion and emotional intelligence. Until recently, emotional intelligence, and the discourse around emotions, was largely reserved for time “off the clock”. This myth that bringing our emotions into the workplace is unprofessional, is not only dangerous for our mental and emotional health, it is detrimental to our work efficiency and results, as well. Set yourself up for success and start 2021 off with an approach that works! Say goodbye to trivial New Year's Resolutions.

Wednesday, January 27- How to identify your own personal goals for the New Year with Austin Walker `11

What you should take away:
-Understand the difference between coaching, therapy, consulting 

-How taking an introspective look into your internal biases are impacting the relationship to your life projects

-Be at cause for what you want to create and experience in your life.
-Leave with guidance for a self-evaluation exercise to discover your Essence.
