Workshop Series at CIIS: Becoming Your Own Professional Coach

Please click to check out the Professional Development series of workshops that Monica Broecker and I will offer at California Institute of Integral Studies this fall. Beginning on October 11th Monica and will co-facilitate a unique exploration of how to cultivate happiness through our work or search for work. We'll ask questions like: What rituals can we create that will support and enliven our current work? What paradigms and resources do we have internally and in the room that are currently untapped? In this series we'll utilize Improvisational theater techniques, practices from Solution Focused Brief Therapy and Neuroscience, and live Visual Recording in a holistic process that explores the challenges and stressors of work and life in new ways. Please join us this Fall.
