From Slow Death to Sweet Success: Seven Survival Strategies

Life is full of what the British euphemistically call, bad patches, difficult times that can transition to a far better life — or not. Yet history is full of strategies that can turn a career (or a life) around. From Robinson Crusoe to POWs in the Hanoi Hilton, these are the stories and strategies that can help you get out of a rut before it becomes a grave! This interactive, full-day program is for anyone, but especially for those who must lead others through periods of intense change.
