Growth Mindset
A growth mindset is the belief that our basic abilities or talents can be enhanced, and new ones can be developed through dedication and perseverance. Fostering this mindset helps us get “unstuck”, embraces challenges, and can shift the experience of making a mistake from failure to opportunity. Join this webinar to learn about ways to develop a growth mindset and how it can benefit you both professionally and personally.

#MonthlyMotivation: Connect with your Purpose
We often find work that connects with a purpose, such as giving to others, but then we get busy (and tired) and lose that sense of our personal mission statement. Join this webinar to re-connect with your purpose in life…that may reside outside of your work life. Either way, this practice can help us to be resilient in life.
