Do you sometimes find yourself stuck in the proverbial alligator pit of too many responsibilities, personalities, and expectations? As nonprofit expert Beth Kanter notes, "overwork and stress can lead to burnout and depression and that can lead to even bigger problems. As a sector, we need to understand that working endlessly long hours is not productive."

Developing strong connections and inspiring buy-in and loyalty can be difficult with so many demands snapping at us. On top of that, we are often expected to lead with strong, visionary plans for the future.

Let’s get out of the pit, stay out, and move on! Author, coach and motivational speaker Carrie Vanston will give you ways to do just that. You will learn to:

· Consciously frame your point of view to the positive;

· Forget about compromise, focus on finding the other person's win;

· Clarify your “why” and others will be excited about your “what."

Increase engagement, improve productivity, and drive growth using positive thinking, "win-win" relationships, and shared vision. Come join in as we talk about being more effective and, equally important, happy and fulfilled leaders who are OUT OF THE PIT and moving on!
