You’re not performing at your best. It feels like life is getting away from you. Not just with getting pulled in a hundred directions, but with not performing at your best. You struggle to say no.
Wellness concerns? You’ve been sacrificing your physical and mental health for several years. You’re struggling with how to get it back on track.

Some struggle with being successful at work and at home. Some believe the myth that you cannot be effective at work and home. The research I teach busts this myth.
Wellness concerns? Many in your department are struggling with their physical and mental health. You just have not found the right workshop that delivers a plan for sustainable change.
Has your workday started to spillover and cause havoc in your family relationship and your health & wellness? Have you been missing important family events outside of shift work? Are you regularly skipping healthy meals and exercise just to squeeze more into your day? If so, you’re not the only one. Countless individuals struggle with maintaining steady personal and work lives.
