Empowered Me
Presented by Anna Delong, LCSW, CEAP
Thursday, November 20, 2014   12 noon, North Tower Education room 8614

Often when we feel trapped or stuck in a negative cycle it is because we are locked into a frame of mind which highlights only what is outside of our control.  Just as it is naturally human to be imperfect, it is naturally human to have trigger points that "get on our last nerve" and set the stage for us to react in ways that perpetuate the very cycle we wish to break. There is great wisdom in learning how to focus on what is within our control when facing challenges.   How we choose to respond and what we choose to focus on does indeed make a difference.  If you are interested in learning how to shift your mindset, how to focus on what is within your control, and experience more success is breaking free from patterns and cycles you feel are unhelpful in your life, consider joining this seminar.  We will discuss tools and tactics to create an empowered perspective, identify realistic expectations and goals, and begin to understand how our peace, happiness and successes are ultimately impacted by our own choices, words and actions.



FEAP also offers seminars on a variety of Work/Life topics throughout the year for general employee groups and by request of departments.  To request a seminar for a work group, or for more information about upcoming seminars, please contact FEAP at 243-2643.
