June 22nd Member Workshop:
Is Your Hair On Fire?
Break free of worry and stress
CLICK HERE TO REGISTER
Guest Speaker: Mitch Matthews
Entrepreneur, Success Coach and Podcaster
Mitch teaches participants real-world strategies for breaking free from the cycle of worry and stress... so they can be more creative, engaged and effective. These are powerful and practical tools that help teams to communicate better, navigate stressful situations and even have more fun while also performing at new levels.

These concepts also help leaders to not only navigate worry and stress themselves, but also help their teams to navigate challenges more effectively as well. 

Plus, Mitch shares how a life-changing and laughter-inspiring experience on a Montana mountain top forced him to overcome worry and become passionate about helping others to do the same.

These concepts can be applied at work and at home! So your audience will be able to apply these concepts immediately.
