The way to happiness
Continued learning and growth
We are in a new era since the great disruption of 2020; normal is over and people continue to question what they want their life to look like. It is also time to change the way we think about work and leadership. After 20+ years as Executive Coach, Dr. Cynthia Howard recognizes leaders, business owners and professionals need a new mindset and perspective in order to achieve their goals and have the impact they want to have – personally and professionally.
TRUTH #1: Happy people are more successful.
TRUTH #2: Happiness doesn’t come from things but by stretching oneself beyond your comfort zone.
The way to happiness? Continued learning and growth with a little help from your friends!
