Passion for Work (life)

Todd Henry

Are you building a body of work you can be proud of? When you channel a passion for work into something useful to others, the world around you changes. In this Opening Plenary, you will learn a practical process for identifying personal and organizational passion areas, and a framework for applying them to the work you are already doing. Additionally, you'll come to understand why so many people and teams get stuck in a place of mediocrity, and how to avoid these common ruts and pitfalls so that you can unleash your best work every day.                                                                                                                                                                            

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify three kinds of work and why it is important to engage in all three each day
  • Define your through-line and center your work around your most effective activities
  • Determine how to remain curious and surround problems for better insights
  • Consider methods for preventing ego, both individual and collective, from causing stasis
  • Discuss practical ways to forge relationships that keep you engaged, aligned, and inspired
