Talk: Kick it Up a Notch!
Too often we start a task only to not stay committed or go through the motions with limited results. This session will incorporate motivation and the importance of understanding our motivation styles, and what is behind our motivations. While there are several types of motivational theories, we will look at how they all work in a combination through the journey of personal stories. Understanding these combinations will help you reach your personal or professional goals and help you identify and develop ways to see high potential results in your life!
