Are you holding on to pre-existing beliefs that may be holding back your business, clients or work progress following the current post covid lockdown?

My guest, Libby Wagner decided a sabbatical was needed to get her own thoughts in order. With an unsettling world of political division, unsettling media reporting and economic turmoil , Libby wanted to challenge her own thinking and get closer to the truth.  This took the form of a solo grand adventure across the United States by Campervan to reflect, write and connect with normal people and discover what was really going on and where beliefs need to shift.

Libby is the author of Amazon Best-Seller, The Influencing Option: The Art of Building a Profit Culture in Business and What Will You Do With Your 90,000 Hours? The Boardroom Poet’s Thoughts on Work and three collections of poems. She works with executives to create dramatic, memorable impacts, so they confidently lead their organizations on adventures towards innovative horizons.

Her revised thinking is now positively impacting her clients as they build business cultures that excel today.

Join us and consider your own grand adventure and how you adapt your thinking for today’s business world to provide great solutions to business and life challenges.
