learning from adversity

As most of us have learned, often the hard way, over the past 2+ years: adversity can make us stronger. Prior to that, in 2018, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. So, while 2018 was full of uncertainty and healing. It also brought opportunities for learning and growth. As I reflect on what I learned, I see how much of it is applicable at work. In this talk I share my journey and then discuss some of the things that I learned: • How to ask for help. • The importance of sharing. • How to slow down. • What really matters. • Co-workers and clients are people too. My journey made me a stronger person and my hope is that by sharing it I can enable others to grow as well.

Take Aways

  • Learn how to apply what you learn in life at work.
  • Gaining strength from adversity.
