AAF Speaker Series January 2020

As a professional, many of us have felt uninspired by the projects we’re working on, the people with whom we’re working, or maybe the company’s overall vision and mission moving forward. This lack of fire and enthusiasm will not only keep us in order, but perhaps stagnate our professional, and even personal, growth potential. 

In this presentation, Anna Schott will illustrate how dangerous it can be to remain in a state of comfort through “The Growth Rings” and how being in discomfort is the only way to live a more creative, imaginative, and intentional life.
