To All You Movers and Shakers,
I recently heard someone say that August is the Sunday of Summer. I had to laugh, but I also had to take my head out of that space of sarcasm and cynicism. Yes, our summer days are coming to a close, but so are a lot of distractions, obligations and daily balancing acts that can make summer a challenge in itself. The way I see it is August is the start of a new month. Another chance to focus in. Another timetable to measure the results that we’ve all been working towards.
Our July speakers, Grace McParland and Kathy Hartung introduced us to the CORE assessment which helps us harness our unchanging nature with regard to career, drive and relationships. I have had many people show me the results of taking this test and share how they were using the results to fine-tune their interactions. It makes my heart sing to hear our members tell me that the efforts of our Business Boot Camp are a success.
