Shifting perspectives is hard. Staying stuck is harder

Mahatma Gandhi says, “Your beliefs become your thoughts, your thoughts become your words, your words become your actions, your actions become your habits…” Experience Gandhi’s wisdom first-hand as we identify how thoughts become limiting beliefs that lead to unintended realities and keep people stuck. This workshop will help participants begin to uncover the role their beliefs and thoughts play in the way they navigate work, relationships, and life. Attendees will walk away with personal insights and introductory tools for intentionally shifting from limiting beliefs to new perspectives.

Ideal audience: Organizations struggling with productivity, employee or member engagement, high turnover rates or whose culture feels unsupported, exhausting, tense, unnecessarily competitive, and toxic.
