07/10/19 The Power of Perspective: Finding the Silver Lining When It’s Raining Cats & Dogs
Sometimes a set-back is really a remarkable path forward. This is a story about shaping our best possible future by changing the lens through which we view our challenges. Join Rachel D.K. Finney, CEO of Columbus Humane, for an inspiring look at how she and her team leverage adversity and make the best of difficult situations by shifting perspectives. Conquer any challenge from catastrophic flooding to feline overpopulation with a journey to the bright side.
This session creates an opportunity to consider the “up side of down.” Finney, a self-proclaimed “advantage-ist” teaches the audience to consider the advantages of experiencing hardship and the good that can come from otherwise bad situations. Attendees will receive an advantage inventory and a reflection activity ready for immediate use.
