Title of talk: Switch On: Turning Work Challenges into Career Breakthroughs and Leadership Purpose
Take aways for you:
- We are born to have breakthroughs, which allow us to get through anything that is blocking our work, our career progress or our leadership growth
- However, our biologies are geared to keep us in our comfort zones; and trap us in a cycle of blame, shame and complain when we are switched off
Breakthrough Biodynamics™ gives everyone a structured process to switch on and engage with every issue we face and find within it more insight into our career purpose, emerging strengths and new powers we can use to serve the world and thrive ourselves
