The Masks We Wear (Professional Development Seminar)

January 16 @ 8:30 AM - 12:00 PM


You are in the people business. You supervise, lead, take care of and are responsible for others. 

And….what about you?

Regulating pressure and work fatigue can diminish the passion you have or once had for your chosen profession. The stigma that we “have it all together” is exhausting. It’s time to take off the mask and join others in a morning of professionally facilitated, connection-based practice.

Deepening the connection with yourself strengthens your relationships with others and your ability to lead authentically. Through an innovative integration of the ACE study, you’ll reflect and identify the inside of the mask that you protect, and the outside of the mask that you present to others. Discover why self-mastery & self-regulation are key to connected relationships and becoming an even better leader.
