Laura Foster Talk: Fall Back in Love with Your Work

This talk is for you if you’re a leader who’d like to find more enthusiasm, meaning, and satisfaction in your current role and/or to inspire your team to do the same. 

Far too many of us as women were told, “You can do anything you want.” Or perhaps, “Find a career you love, and money and joy will follow.” When this doesn’t happen, we become frustrated and dissatisfied, which lately has been fueled by the lingering pressures of a pandemic, increased workplace demands due to a worker shortage, and now an impending recession with likely layoffs across multiple industries and sectors.

According to a recent Gallup poll, over 70% of employees globally are disengaged with their work. As leaders, increasing work engagement in both ourselves and our employees will be key to navigating this next year of business.

If you’ve ever sat at your desk and wondered, how did I get here? Is this what I want? Is this all there is? Or if you’ve felt yourself coasting in your current role and know that you want more meaning and satisfaction in your work, this talk will help you re-envision work as an opportunity for professional and personal growth. You will learn how to take responsibility for yourself and your team, shift your professional communication, and empower yourself to be the leader you were meant to be. 

You will leave understanding how to re-engage with your career so you can possess more energy, improve professional relationships, make more impact, and position yourself for additional career advancement.
