Janet Smith, a former public relations professional who is now a workplace culture consultant, will lead us through an interactive workshop designed to help everyone work more effectively. Research shows that when we're engaged in activities that we enjoy, we're six times more likely to be engaged with our work, three times happier with our lives, 8 percent more productive, and 53 percent more focused. Unfortunately, though, our daily activities include tasks we do because we have to, not because we want to.
Why do some aspects of our work and our lives make us feel strong and energized, while other aspects leave us feeling weak and drained? And does our personality determine what we enjoy doing...or is it the other way around? During Janet's Maximize Your Energy workshop, which incorporates an innovative strengths assessment tool, you'll gain personal insight that sheds new light on why you love some activities and dread others. By the end of the workshop, you'll know how to stay in the energy zone as much as possible, develop strategies for dealing with drainers, and learn about the unintended consequences that often occur when energy goes into "overdrive." You'll also have a much better understanding of why others in your life, such as your spouse, children, and clients, behave the way they do!
