Jen lives for the experience where an individual, a team or an organization breaks through to the next level of meaning, performance, joy, and fulfillment then she stands with them to catch the waves of positive impact that result.

Leading through the power of Inspiration

It is an incredible and revelatory time to be a woman leader. There are opportunities to step in, step up and lead critical change in the world around us every day. With so much to do, lists are long, days are short, how do we do we fuel this charge sustainably? In this session, Jen Grace Baron, co-author of the new book, Dare to Inspire, will unveil the original research to unlock the science of inspiration as a most valuable resource to be managed leading progress and growth. We tend to think about inspiration as a powerful experience that visits us infrequently and without warning, but it doesn’t have to be this way. What if we didn’t have to wait or passively hope for it? What if we could ignite it when we need it most? Well you can.

In this session you will:

  • Understand inspiration in new ways, how it works and the ways you inspire others
  • Experience how progress, achievement and underdogs are core sources to fuel inspiration
  • Understand how to scale inspiration to enable change, growth and success
