How to Engineer Your Success

Would you like to improve your performance?  Would you like more support from your boss or your partners at work?  Would you like better results with your team?  Do you feel stuck in some aspect of your career?  Let’s bring clarity to your situation so you can move forward.

If you want to experience more success, as defined by YOU, then be sure to join us for a mid-summer investment in your career development.

This meeting will be unlike our traditional technical meetings. Our summer 2021 jam session will be a hands-on workshop, not a traditional lecture-based presentation. During the workshop, you will complete a few exercises on your own. We also will discuss our findings as we go.

The free workshop will focus on three fundamental ingredients of success:

  1. Setting an intention
  2. Cultivating awareness
  3. Getting unstuck

We will explore the process of personal transformation, which is the key to success. You will leave this workshop with a deeper understanding of how your mind works and the “best next step” to take in your journey.

This is a great opportunity to bring more clarity to your life. Invest in your success!
