The paradox of self-compassion and being gentle with yourself.

Learn skills that can actually help give women an edge in business and why it works from a neuroscience and physiological perspective. 

Often women become very hard on themselves to compete in male-dominated industries.  But, the reality is that being gentle with themselves allows them to access higher brain function via the pre-frontal cortex for better decision-making, executive functioning, creativity, ability to connect with others, confidence, etc.  

Wellness is one of the most crucial tools we can bring to our work environment. As we look to handle the uphill challenge of bringing on new clients, WHILE handling current responsibilities inside and outside the office, something’s gotta give! Our guest speaker Sarah Hodges has impressed me tremendously, and hope she can impress you too. Come with questions!
