Finding Success in the Middle of Chaos
June 9, 2020 | 2pm | Virtual Workshop

During this pandemic, there is so much going on it's sometimes hard to sort out what needs to happen next. Yet, you know that this is not the time to do nothing because these times will not last. We will be back to business "as usual", although we don't what "as usual" will look like. What we do know is we need to continue to make sure we are poised and ready when we are back to business. That is what this workshop is all about.

You will learn to:

· Identify and celebrate your wins. Yes, you are still having wins!
· Plant the right seeds now and build relationships
· Revamp, reframe and reengage
