Energy Management

February 23, 2022 | 12:00PM-1:30PM ET


There are only 24 hours in a day. We cannot gain more time in our days, but we can be deliberate about how we spend our time and energy. When we intentionally manage our energy to make the best of how we spend it and replenish it, we gain the feeling of more time and space in our days. This awareness and shift will help us manage stress and build resilience. In this session, you’ll also access your human battery charge and how you can enhance your energy in the 4 human energy components: Physical/Body, Emotions, Mental/Thinking, and Spirit/Purpose.

This session will help you raise awareness of your mindset and notice the day-to-day impact your mindset (your thinking) can have. Learn more about the brain’s default mode – which is wired for negativity and protection! Dissect your (often unconscious) thinking patterns. Learn if the stories you tell yourself about yourself, others and situations are helping you or hindering you. Are your thoughts self-limiting or self-liberating? What would be the benefit of pausing and re-framing? You’ll dive into all of this and more during this Mindset session.

Presence & Listening

Watch the Video

July 28, 2022 | 12:00PM-1:30PM ET


Assess and practice presence and listening through reflection and exercises. When it comes to being fully present, learn how to best manage distraction (both internal and external) to be more in the moment, fully alive, and aware. Practice the “Power of the Pause” to be more present moment to moment. You’ll also get entrenched in what good listening looks and feels like… and evaluate how often you listen to understand vs. listen to respond. Thought-provoking, isn’t it?
