Carol will be presenting a keynote address:"Finding the Story Behind the Story: Narrative Intelligence as a Transformational Leadership Tool" at the conference.

Everyone knows that thriving in today's fast-paced, globally complex world requires new ways of thinking, feeling and acting. Yet, it is another thing altogether to live and work in a way that is personally satisfying and professionally successful. Individuals, companies and even whole countries make choices that are dictated by unconscious, archetypal structures that are too often mistaken for "reality." This presentation assists leaders in gaining the narrative intelligence they need to decode their own unchallenged assumptions as well as those of others, to recognize the unwritten rules governing organizational cultures, and to articulate narratives that can inspire others to think and act in ways appropriate to the daunting task of meeting the challenges of our time, however great or small.

In Carol's workshop, "Shifting the Story: Living Your Work Life as if it Were a Great Movie", she will show you how you can maximize all fun and joy of your favorite movie by re-writing the script you play out in your work life.

If your business were a movie with you as its main character, would you want to watch it? If not, what story would you like to be living? I got the idea for this workshop when I was consulting on a Hollywood script that had an ending that just did not sing. The same strategy that helped me recommend an optimal ending works in real life too. This program will allow you to have some fun thinking about your work life as a movie you have entered and to fine-tune your work/life plot to achieve the feel-good quality of a first-rate Hollywood hit.

Other esteemed presenters at the conference include Steven M R Covey, Chip Conley, Tim Dailey, Lance Secretan, William Strickland, J Robert Ouimet, Aaron Feuerstein, Brian Nattrass, Laurie Beth Jones and many others.

Come celebrate yourself with morning yoga classes, 5 very special evening events and much, much more. Recharge your spirit!
