    Topic

    As a talent and development leader, have you ever asked yourself exactly what it means to “celebrate” something or someone? If you are like most talent and development leaders, the answer is “no.” Yet celebration is the very sustenance that drives our lives and motivation – in every arena. Attendees will receive a powerful tool to apply this concept in life and business.

    Learning Objectives

    In this presentation, we will:
    • Look at celebration as our spiritual filling station in life.
    • Explore its deeper meaning and underlying concepts.
    • Walk away with a practical tool with which to turbo-charge the way we celebrate our world, our lives, and our successes along the way.

    Why Should I Attend?

    Learn about an important and little understood concept for enhancing performance and leadership.

    Who Should Attend?

    Managers at all levels, senior individual contributors, coaches, and trainers
