Keynote: Unlocking Your Everyday Power – Heather Suerdieck, Inside Out Coaching

Did you know that you could grow “you” while you were making coffee each morning? Or how about having an “ah-ha” about yourself while you buckle your seatbelt each day? Our daily lives have so many objects in them, but what if we rebranded how we think about them, and ourselves, while we use them? From birthday horns to coffee filters to cell phone chargers to seatbelts, there is empowerment all around us, but it takes special space to transform how we see these items. The morning keynote with Coach Heather will connect you with everyday items that will become your new tools of empowerment.

Does this training qualify for HRCI credits? If not, this sounds like a perfect program to be included.

Thank you

Hi Heather - This conference is not one that currently qualifies for HRCI credits, but we will certainly consider it for future WLOA events. In the meantime, you may be able to self-report for this year. Hope to see you there!
