No Glory in the Grind: Re-Finding Your Sense of Direction Before Burnout


Leaders start with the best of intentions. They have big plans, have made big promises, and want to leave a legacy. 

Too often the goals of great leaders get lost in the burnout of the position, life, and the struggle of aligning the two.


No Glory in the Grind is a transformative program where participants are challenged to explore the power of intentional reset and reflection as a creative outlet for redefining personal and professional vision. Through understanding the power of reset and reflection, participants will be invited to confront their own barrier admiration in recognizing and addressing issues within themselves and their organizations.


In understanding why personal and organizational issues are often not addressed, participants will then be taught key emotional intelligence skills in identifying when times of reset and reflection are needed to redefine their personal and organizational visions of success.

This program is designed to be delivered in a 3-6 hour format for less than 50 particiapnts.
