DREAMING BIG – for yourself and the next generation of leaders

  • Standard Insurance Center 900 Southwest 5th Avenue Portland, OR, 97204 United States (map)

Many women live bifurcated lives: We focus on our own achievements and leadership skills at work and teach the next generation of leaders at home. And, while we are helping our children find their next step in life, we are contemplating our own. In this highly interactive workshop, Kirsten Jones, Peak Performance speaker and coach from Los Angeles, California, will guide us through exercises to take the pressure off the “destination” and open the on-ramp to dream. She will help us turn off the negative noise in our heads and turn up the volume on possibility, because we have “next steps” at every phase of life.  As Michelle Obama says, “We are always becoming.” What we focus on e-x-p-a-n-d-s, so join WCL to create:

  • Possibility map(s) to envision your next five years

  • Next steps to pursue your ideas

  • How to create daily action steps

Note: Since this is “take your child to work day,” the subject matter will also be appropriate for teens aged 13-18, so we invite you to bring your child to WCL, or come alone and focus on your dreams.

Kirsten Jones is an author, coach and motivational speaker residing in Los Angeles, California. She helps entrepreneurs, leaders and athletes align their mission with their vision and values to get what they want in life. Her passion for sport was nurtured at The College of William and Mary where she was inducted into the Hall of Fame, and at Nike where she trained and mentored product executives from across the globe. She is the co-host of the #RaisingAthletes Podcast on iTunes, where she speaks about the challenges of not only raising strong athletes but also (and more importantly) extraordinary people.
