Glass Peak Leaders Wanted…Only the Strong and Brave Need Apply
Leaders are most often faced with more tasks than can be completed in a day. Staying focused and not burning out in the process can be a balancing act. Keeping yourself and a team of diverse employees in a positive and productive state may feel impossible.
As the leader, you also know your team is counting on you to show them the way. How do you incorporate everyone’s unique skills and abilities? How can you encourage diversity and thought leadership within your organization?
In this working session, CEO Connie Martin will share essential insights on maximizing the talent on your team while still taking care of yourself. You will leave with a renewed readiness to take on whatever the day brings and to conquer any obstacles you may face. If you’re ready to not just break through the glass ceiling, Connie will show you how to truly reach the Glass Peak.

If you’re leading a team and are charged with creating loyalty and a team mindset or struggling to find new retention/recruitment strategies, this workshop is for you.

Health Care Workers: Burned Out vs Engaged?
When you are on an airplane and being instructed of what to do in an emergency, you are told that the very first thing to do is to put YOUR oxygen mask on FIRST so you are able to help others. Health Care Workers are the leader in number one stress related-jobs in the country. While taking care of others, health care workers often forget the importance of taking care of themselves; thus leading to burnout, depression, injuries, and illnesses.
In this session, learn about the criticality of taking care of yourself first in order to be more effective and engaged on your job as well as in life as a whole (and no, it is not selfish to take care of yourself). If you got into your profession because you loved helping people and want to make sure you don’t burn out, this session will teach you how to preserve your ability to do what you love.
Ideal for: Health care workers in any field and at any level of your organization
Parenting: What to do when you don’t know what to do
Strong children don’t just “happen.” It takes strong adults who have the attitude that they
are willing to give it everything they have for the future of their children. While keeping a child’s confidence up as they are navigating this uncertain world can be tricky, it is also essential to them growing up to be happy, successful adults.
For Connie, this is personal. She knew what she didn’t want her children to experience when it came to parenting. Faced with one trial after another following a divorce, becoming a single mom, and living on a shoe string budget, Connie was able to turn the tables on life, show her children they have the power to change things and life can be whatever they want it to be. (Spoiler alert: This ultimately led to very happy and successful children.)
In this session, Connie will share parenting techniques she used while going through very challenging circumstances. You will leave this session feeling a renewed sense of confidence and empowered to engage differently with your family.
Ideal for: Parents, caretakers and people who work with new parents or unique family situations
