    RESILIENCE: Resources to Bend not Break, Coping and Creating with Change (Coffee/tea/snacks) 
         Just enough heat... can bend steel, not enough heat... resistance and struggle occurs, too much heat... and integrity is lost. How often are we subject to forcing shapes unreachable simply because the conditions are not ripe enough? How often do we subject others and ourselves to unripe or too ripe conditions only to be disappointed or overwhelmed by outcomes?
         Pressure changes everything. In a snap, a trigger event like death, divorce, merger, retirement or illness can alter your path forever. Equally, pressure overtime creates stress, which can alter your experience of mental, emotional and physical health, and undermine your sense of well-being and access to resiliency and effectiveness.
         In this lively and informative interactive presentation, you'll learn to recognize the ripeness of enough, build resilience to bend not break, and work with the chaos of change that life brings.

         Annelies M Gentile, MA, PCC, is a speaker, author, Integrative Life and Leadership Coach with graduate studies in creativity, conflict transformation, peace building, and transformative leadership in Europe and the US.

         From Broadway to blacksmithing to divorce, death and Dubai, Annelies is no stranger to change. A thought leader with a presence-based approach to coaching— Annelies helps professionals navigate change, mindfully, creatively and successfully. Having traveled in 22 countries and 47 US states, Annelies discovered that most people want the same three things: to be heard, to feel safe, and to hold a sense of belonging. How we get there is what triggers conflict, separation and discord. She says "getting comfortable with what’s uncomfortable is important and matters to all of us."

         No matter whom she serves, Annelies believes the secret to success is compassion. Learn more about Annelies and her new book From Chaos to Calm :: Leading Change from the Inside Out at her website www.conduitforchange.com

    TITLE: Raising Performance by Shifting Mindsets -- An Exploration of Positive Psychology in the Workplace

    Networking: 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm (Dinner will be provided)

    Program Presentation: 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

    In this overview, we’ll both share AND experience positive emotions and then discuss its impact on outcomes and performance.  Shifting to a positive mindset is a competitive advantage and makes us better in every domain of our lives.  With this in mind, we’ll even provide you a few evidence-based techniques to sustain positivity for the long term.

    Presented by:

    Donald Sandel

    Don Sandel is the founder of GoPositiv. He’s been leading talent development efforts for small and large organizations for the last few decades and has transitioned those skills and experiences into GoPositiv. He began studying the brain and its effect on learning about a decade ago, discovered compelling and irrefutable research around positivity, “I researched how positivity impacted learning and development, literally enabled the brain to learn more effectively, and was immediately hooked!” Don then researched everything on the topic from Achor, Seligman, Fredrickson, Rock, Goleman, Seppala, Hanson and completed a Certificate in Applied Positive Psychology. https://www.gopositiv.com/

      Feeding Your Brain for a Change - 2020 UPDATE  (Coffee/tea/snacks) 

      It has been a year since we last discussed feeding the brain for a change. 
      So . . . What’s up? What’s new? What have we all learned, experienced, and discovered?

      Your guides, resources gatherers, and presenters for the meeting will be: Hope HillsMarguerite LawnMary Charles Blakebrough and Mindy Schrager.

      The four presenters will share information and updates from some of the latest books, podcasts, research, resources regarding ways to nurture the brain and body to maintain and improve health and brain function.  There will be several new twists as there are major updates in brain nutrition and integrated health care.

      Some books on the sharing list are:

      • The Emotion Code: How to Release Your Trapped Emotions for Abundant Health, Love, and Happiness (Updated & Expanded) by Dr. Bradley Nelson (2019)

      In addition, if you have stirred up any brain-healthy snacks and treats, feel free bring them to share at the meeting, along with recipes (we will put them in the 'send out afterwards' email); and you could also include on your recipe, your contact information, and resources you have found valuable.
