Edina and Bloomington Thrive! are killing it while Creating Mindset and Habits for Powerful Results in a New Season of Life and Business.

Covid has created a big shift in what we think so we spent time identifying that “what we think is what we become”. The mind is so powerful and you have the control to shift your mindset. We talked about how covid has changed stress, behaviors, actions and attitudes and shared ways to shift our thinking. Together we conquered leaving behind “what can’t I do” and focused on the “can do”. You truly have the power and Thrive! Edina & Bloomington were enthusiastic in their participation. Thanks to Frank Sherwood and AFB for inviting me to speak to their group.

Brian Lassiter and the team at Performance Excellence Network know a little about Stress management

PEN held a Stress Management and Resilience Retreat offering this time needed topic. I was honored to present a 3 hour workshop on Self-Care in a New Season – for Business and for Life.

Given today’s stressors, we all need to take care of ourselves and our teams and find ways to promote wellness in mind, heart, and health.  Together we explored three key concepts that reduce stress, promote wellness and resilience:

  • Setting Goals-Honoring Priorities – As Steve Jobs has said “Passion fuels the rocket, but vision – a big dream – points the rocket to its ultimate destination. Dream Bigger!” We explored the power of setting – and remaining focused – on priorities and the impact it has to keep us grounded, focused, and resilient.
  • Say no to excuses and live with purpose – We shared what best fuels your body and how to put the fun in activity.

Mindset effects everything – What you think, you will become. We explored the power of purpose, sharing how we all can become more mindful as leaders and individuals.

Ambassadors For Business Keep Leadership Strong Through Example

It was my pleasure to be the Keynote Speaker presenting Creating Powerful Mindset & Habits for Powerful Times in a New Season of Life & Business at the Anoka AFB Thrive! in Anoka, MN and Austin, TX AFB Thrive! meeting Thursday, August 27th at 7:00-8:30 a.m. Central. Discussion was around what you think = what you become and choosing to be a strong leader by standing up to fear. Identifying how to grow through fear and lead by changing the narrative, signs of great leadership. Thank you Bob Wilbanks for honor.

Team Women Series, Self-Care and the Sandwich Generation

Are you wondering how, when, where and if you can find time for yourself during this new time of life? The Team Women attendees at the first zoom series on Self-Care and the Sandwich Generation sure did. In this time of raising children and looking into the future of aging parents we got together to discuss burnout, guilt, long days and a new timeline that seems may never end.

Together we looked at setting boundaries emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually so we don’t put too much in one cup and leave another one drained. Topics covered were getting finances out in the open, including other family members to pitch in by being specific with requests and planning and holding difficult conversations. We gave ourselves permission to schedule a “time for me” moment at the end of a hard week or after a difficult discussion. You cannot be your best you if you do not remember to take good care of you and the first step to doing that is giving yourself permission to schedule you in.

We ended with an exercise to identify traps, triggers and where to locate the help needed and desired. A community has been created and we have 5 more sessions in the 6 part series. Thank you to Katy Burke and Team Women for identifying a need of your members and bringing me in to facilitate a discussion. If you would like to join in please contact Katy Burke with Team Women. 

CRASH + SUES Partnered with AFB and Brought Wellness to Work!

Big shout out and Thank You to President Heidi Habben for inviting me and the topic of wellness into the office. The objectives of the presentation were: Create Self Care Routines, Discover Methods to Relieve Stress, and Invest in Wellness in the Workplace. Inspirational and mindful techniques were shared and discussed surrounding all aspects of emotional, mental, physical and spiritual health in the 40 minute time of wellness awareness. One attendee commented: It was a good reminder of how to take care of my personal self, it is as important as my business and spiritual self. ~Andrew

I was honored to have the privilege of speaking to this amazing group. Taking good care of you is key to your success in life and in business. CRASH + SUES and the attendees believe it, join in the season of wellness!
