JESSE ARNOLDSON

Our Busy Addiction 

We're stressed out. We are not as productive as we hope or need to be. We feel like we're giving 100% of ourselves while those around us feel that they aren't getting even close to what they need from us. Even with all these things, we continue to say yes to every project and assignment at work that comes our way, we show off our over scheduled calendars,  we sign our kids up for more and more activities, and we wear our busyness as a badge of honor. It's time to step back, recognize that we have a problem, and take steps to rehab ourselves from this addiction to being busy.

 

In this session, we'll spend time looking at the signs of being too busy, the problems that it causes in all aspects of our lives, and the ways to start changing things towards a more focused and meaningful life.

SHARLENE WELLS

Sports, Military and Miss America: Grit and Grace Making the Difference

In this presentation, Sharlene brings real world, high profile experiences into the spotlight as examples of where grit and grace come from, how these traits can be learned, why they are both beautiful and powerful, and why they are a driver in the world of business, especially for women. Sharlene’s diverse careers in male-dominated worlds from ESPN to the Pentagon provide a unique perspective and backdrop on the nature of both grit and grace, and applying both in our professional and personal lives.

Account-Able: Developing Accountable People That Exchange EFTs

In a world where we may not physically see everyone at work, how do you know people are doing what they say they’ll do, are they really working when they are “working from home”?  Or has overall accountability across your work organization been a worry of yours?  Join me for a session on how to develop more accountability on your team, how to make your work environment and culture more productive and efficient, as well as achieving the outcomes you want and need for your organization.  Learn how exchanging EFTs can help those around you be accountable to one another.  Help your team be account-able and use the power of exchanging EFTs to make it happen.
