Session Description

In every job, there is a balance between what you like to do and what you must do. Learning how to strike a balance between the two can help lead to a more fulfilling and harmonious career. Using storytelling and attendee prompts, we will discuss words of advice and encouragement based on our experiences of how we have each taken our roles and transformed them to suit our talents, strengths, and passions.
