Crossing Lines: Creating Professional and Personal Boundaries

7:30am - 8:00am
8:00am - 10:00am  
Networking and Breakfast

Program Overview
In this two-hour session, Samantha will create a healthy space to allow for an audience based interactive dialogue. By leveraging a large group discussion technique to tackle real life issues/challenges, we will reach a common understanding of others’ perspectives and experiences in the room. We will tackle how to have discussions of the undiscussibes and practice being vulnerable.

It is through this story sharing that we will be able to examine themes, connections, uncover what might have been hidden, and recognize links that matter to each of us. By increasing self-awareness and getting in sync with ourselves first, we can be clear about how to use the brain based tools to drive our desired relationship outcomes. Each individual can walk out of the session with greater topic context and can begin to draft a script to better manage these future personal boundaries issues. 

*Please note: You will be sent some required reading and exercises to complete before attending this event.*
