The Abundant Life "Buffet"!


Our approach for this workshop is to present a wide range of skills with something to satisfy everyone.

Our common threads will be on improving communication between people and inside team environments, working together and collaboration, developing a positive attitude and a philosophy of gratitude as an outlook in life, tolerance and sensitivity to people of different approaches to work. The day concludes with a session on how we can all work together to ignite more joy and purpose in our careers and support the people we support with greater purpose.




The Stress Busting Summit


As our lives get busier and often more complex with work, life and family pressures and stresses, the importance of responding to various stressors become increasingly more important. Join for a "stress busting day" and learn everything you need to know about stress so you can develop a personal plan to ensure that you cope with it in a positive, proactive and productive manner. It is an unrealistic expectation that you will have a "stress free" life and in fact, we need healthy amount of stress in our lives to be able to function.


What can you do when your world seems overwhelmingly stressful? How can you put stress in a healthy perspective and what "tools" can you draw on to mitigate your personal, professional and interpersonal stresses? Throughout the "stress busting summit", you will likely laugh and chuckle as you learn positive and insightful ways to deal with stress and definitely think about committing new approaches and solutions so you can live with stress and various stressors in a productive manner.


The reality is ...the human experience is a stressful ride in life but we must build "shock absorbers" and framework for healthier living, a positive support system, a capacity to live a more balanced life and an ability to laugh and put stress consistently into a useful perspective.
