How to Keep All the Important Balls in the Air

Juggling can be exhilarating and exhausting – and dangerous. Many of us have become adept at keeping several balls in the air at once. What can you do, however, to adjust when new balls get tossed into the picture, or when life throws you a curve or when you just want to rest a bit? How can you set priorities, assemble help and helpers, or, frankly, let go? This program's give-and-take could add spice, skills and wisdom to your lives. We will explore practical and powerful ways to refresh, build effectiveness and enthusiasm, and work toward finding or re-finding your sense of purpose. We’ll discuss values, how best to say “No” and “Yes” at the right times in your career and life, and the pluses and minuses of being “driven.”
