Creating Positive Change in Challenging with Deborah Maher Feb. 12, 2014
Overview Where we place our focus determines what we will see; it colors our world. Is it a world of possibility or a world of limitation? Is it a world of hope or despair or of abundance or scarcity? I believe in asking a new set of questions that support a sense of curiosity, a desire to learn, grow and create new actions that connect to a larger purpose. Deborah will offer participants a new framework for creating positive outcomes in challenging times.
This interactive session will provide you with tips and techniques that can be used immediately to enable participants to make a shift from “problem solving” to “solution finding” that boost productivity and efficiency.
