Monday Morning Speaker Presentation:

Failure isn’t an option…but it should be!

With Valli Swerdlow, MSW

What you will learn at the session:

Experience a moving hands-on leadership workshop called "Failure isn't an option...but it should be!". A client gave me permission to share her story about how she found her passion based on her journey after facing bankruptcy, losing a family business and her home.

She discovered a passion for a completely new field and is now a motivational speaker and soon-to-be author.

Explore ways to overcome anxiety and take your own professional risk.
* Accelerate your creativity and innovation – Change your story and change your life
*Increa$e your earning potential and lifetime nest egg - Turn around negative self-talk and subliminal messages so that we can become successful, happy and encourage innovation.
*What if your current definition of success and failure holds you back from moving forward?
*What if instead of the word “failure” you replaced it with empowering words like powerful, resilient, and strong?
*What if by repeating “Sometimes you have to change your story!” the equation of moving toward success and away from failure was turned around to go for NO instead of go for yes?
