SHIFT: Move from Frustrated to Fulfilled 

Every day, we move in one direction or another. We’re free to choose from endless possibilities. Only you can choose the direction for the rest of your life. Whether you are a seasoned executive, emerging leader, stay-at-home parent, or college student, frustration is inevitable. Now is the time for you to SHIFT from, “I’m so busy and stressed,” to, “I’m living my ideal life right now.” In this presentation, Derek will teach you a 5-gear process that you can apply in your personal and professional lives. Each gear will uniquely move you from frustrated to fulfilled. Through powerful questions and effective exercises, you’ll discover how to make today the day you are inspired to change. It’s your next move! 


1. Discover who you are
2. Decide where you are going
3. Design how you will get there
