September 7, 2017

Featuring speaker Lauren Pagenkopf of Laurus Consulting, LLC, will discuss how in the 24/7, hyper-connected world in which we live and work it can sometimes feel as if we have no control, life is happening, and a work/life balance is an impossible goal. Mindful thinking helps us become aware of the thoughts and behaviors that hold us back, gives us the space to make choices and trade-offs, and empowers us to redefine what success looks like. Lauren will also discuss myths and truths about mindfulness and how to cultivate an intentional approach to work and career.
