October 2016 Presentation – 


Maintaining a Flourishing Enterprise

Exemplify the 5 Principles of Transformational Problem Solving


What would your organization be like if everyone in it was thriving?


A Flourishing Enterprise is possible when we show up as our best selves and see others as their best. Sounds good, but hmmm, not so easy to do. It starts by deepening our awareness of the subtle ways we limit our possibilities when upsetting events occur and realizing we have a choice rather than staying stuck in an unsatisfying reaction.


Join in for a provocative, engaging conversation as we explore:


·         The Six Keys to a Flourishing Enterprise

·         Our self-created Cycle of Struggle

·         The 5 Principles of Loving Your Work (Again)


Through the presenter’s personal stories of living and learning these experiences and principles, you will see yourself and find inspiration for what’s possible for you and your community at work and home.
