By popular demand, the Leadership Connection’s March breakfast lecture will feature an extended workshop entitled “Sustaining Excellence and Enthusiasm in Health, Relationships and Work,” with returning guest speaker Robert Maurer, Ph.D., from 7-11:30 a.m., Thursday, March 29 at the CenterStage Theatre (1017 W. 1st Ave.) in Spokane. The cost is $75 for the combined seminar and breakfast, $25 for students. Registration and breakfast will begin at 7 a.m.; the workshop starts at 7:30 a.m.
The workshop will be based on the branch of psychological research that seeks to understand the traits and behaviors of people and organizations that succeed, rather than those that fail. These studies reach surprisingly consistent conclusions as to the skills that allow people to create, maintain, and enhance success.
Topics to be discussed include the four traits of successful people and organizations, how successful people change, strategies for coping with adversity, and the essential skill to look for in a partner – whether for romance or business.
Maurer is a faculty member in the schools of medicine at the University of California at Los Angeles, and the University of Washington. He is the founder of his own consulting firm, the Science of Excellence. Maurer draws on his work as a clinical psychologist to create programs that emphasize meeting the challenges of building and sustaining excellence and well-being. His programs, which have been presented to corporations, hospital patients and staff, as well as the British government, all have been met with much success and enthusiasm.
