Sarah's Masterclass - Resilience

Resilience is vital, but often eludes us. How can we bounce back from tough feedback?

How can we show up when our personal life is falling apart? How can we overcome adversity to keep positive and motivated, and be the best version of ourselves?

Sarah Scott Paul will take you on a personal journey to equip you with self-awareness, skills and tools to maintain high performance, energy and well-being during times of stress and pressure.

Join Sarah’s session to develop skills of how to listen to your vulnerabilities and learn from them, how to take accountability for your own growth, how to show up to the numerous challenges and difficult emotions that life and work throw at us, the power of empathy, and the value of a strong support network to become resilient and strong.

Nancy and Kate's Masterclass - Purpose and values

Many people just go into auto pilot during the length of their careers, and wonder why they may not be completely satisfied, why they don’t enjoy their work. Taking the time to articulate and understand your why and values can be a transformative experience. We can show you how can you can proactively shift that feeling of being “stuck” through some simple strategies. Purposeful people are able to inspire, unify, and drive collective action to achieve their personal goals and dream.

In this practical session, you will have the opportunity to articulate your why, what is really important to you and use that to guide your career choices in a fulfilling, pro active and empowering way.
