The Power of Laughter


Few things are more beneficial to a person's overall well-being than laughter. In fact, a good sense of humor is not only an indicator of better mental health, it's an indicator of better physical health as well.

Our Search for Purpose & Meaning


Speakers:
Tyrone Stokes, Josiah Ruff, Leonard Sicilian, Libo Mngomezulu

"It’s impossible to feel dread when you have a compelling future... a powerful mission or vision in front of you. It’s hard to drudge through life when there is MEANING attached to your future...

You can’t live in darkness when you believe your future is bright. Perhaps the problem then, is that many of us believe the FUTURE will not be better than the PAST.

Without meaning life is useless and worthless. Without meaning we give up on life. We can NOT GIVE UP on life and we can not give up on our best life."

Why Accountability Is Key to Being a Better Leader


If you're looking to be a better leader in all aspects of your life, you have to hold yourself accountable. Accountability is keeping your commitments to people. Holding those commitments will build deeper, more meaningful relationships and when you build deep relationships with people, you create loyalty and trust. Once you create loyalty and trust, people will never want to let you down because they know that you'll never let them down.
