    Forbes magazine names "stress" our workplace silent killer. You don't have to look far to see the research is clear: we are working ourselves to death. Science has shown that mindfulness-based stress reduction is reducing health care costs and improving productivity and happiness. In this energizing opening session, discover the tools available to you to intentionally create more good days than bad. Make a choice to be in the moment and look at life positively - to reframe the challenging days and renew.

    Attendees will:

    • Identify the difference between meditation and mindfulness
    • Learn what research shows about how stress reduction increases your focus and happiness
    • Choose one applied mindfulness technique you can use in daily living
    The first 100 registrants for the luncheon will receive a copy of Holly's latest book, Everyday Mindfulness: From Chaos to Calm in a Crazy World.

    At the 24/7/365 pace of life today do you feel your organizational institution is spinning out of control? Do you ever wish rebooting your organization was as simple as hitting CTRL+Alt+Delete? In this session you learn simple strategies to build the future of your organization.

    Attendees will learn:

    • CTRL: What are the written and unwritten rules that hold your organization back? Take away tips to learn how to set boundaries with your board and membership to improve the efficiency of your projects and outcomes.
    • ALT: Look for alternate solutions to common problems such as lack of leadership, funding, and resources. Participate in a co-creation visioning exercise. Explore creative solutions that will encourage your board to look at innovating.
    • Believe: It is done unto your organization, as you believe. So, what is it you believe? Now is the time to delete all you believed about how your organization works and create a new future. Take a moment to burn up old patterns and beliefs. As the leader, your energy is the centering force for the beliefs of your board, members and staff.

    If you are overwhelmed as a staff or volunteer leader, join us to gain simple strategies that will reboot and redirect your organization to not only meet but also exceed its vision and mission now. You will walk away with tips to see, feel, and know your organization in a new way.

    The first 40 registrants will receive a copy of Holly's book, Reboot Your Association for Success.

    When: Thursday, September 26, 2019 | 10:00 - 11:30 a.m.
