Hi Everyone,

We are really excited to be hosting a virtual workshop this Friday, April 24th from 12:00 to 1:30 with Cynthia Scherer from Scherer Excellence as she shares her secret formula for showing up at your best – no matter the circumstance. At today’s accelerated pace of change where unmanaged stress can lead to burnout, Cynthia’s approach to Stress and Energy Management has become the platform that forward-thinking leaders use to boost their health, happiness, and the bottom line. We had originally planned this topic well before the COVID-19 outbreak, but today these topics seem more relative than ever before.
