Creating Alignment Across Your Life and Career -  Align your values, reduce overwhelm and expand your leadership 

Amber Swenor, Transformation Strategist, Business Coach, Speaker & Trainer | Founder of the Soul Seed family of brands

As the world has changed, it’s become clear that who you are at home impacts who you are at work and vice-versa. Aligning your values with your work can create a greater work-life harmony, while minimizing burnout. Alignment comes through a deeper awareness about who you are, what you value most, and how those threads connect through your career and work.   

In this interactive workshop, Amber will guide you to create greater alignment between who you are and the work you do professionally, as you’re guided to: 

  • Develop a deeper understanding about who you are and what you value 
  • Recognize threads of alignment in your career 
  • Cultivate a deeper understanding about where you’d like to go next in your credit union career 
  • Gain tools to create greater flow in your work, to expand your leadership capabilities and minimize burnout   

Join us and take this next step to expand your leadership skills while cultivating greater work life harmony!

Focus on the 5th QuestionTM 

Gina Glover, Professional Speaker & Career Coach
Why do 85% of business leaders believe in-person and virtual events are essential to their company’s success? 

  • One word - networking.    
  • Do we exchange business cards? Yes. 
  • Do we make small talk? Yes.  

But does that type of exchange create the long-term relationships we need to move forward in our business and in our life? 

  • No!    
  • What if we had a way to push beyond the small talk? 
  • What if we had a way to expedite the move from conversation to connection? 
  • What if we had a way to empower our people to stand above the crowd?   
  • What if we have the 5th QUESTION?    

In this engaging and entertaining session, Gina Glover leads attendees on a journey to not only uncover but to master the 5th question. She helps people move beyond the standard and often mundane networking conversation to the connections that build relationships.    

From her years of experience as a career coach and highly-skilled networker, Gina guides her audiences on what they must do before, during and after the event. They will learn the critical elements of all effective 5th questions, how to get past those inevitable uncomfortable moments, and how to apply follow up strategies after the event to strengthen every new connection they make.
