What's New At Priority Learning for 2017?

Priority Learning is pleased to announce our first Women’s Leadership Series for 2017! This innovative new program is inspired by the thoughtful feedback we received from the Women’s Focus Group held last June. The Focus Group provided insights to the leadership challenges faced by women today and highlighted the issues of work/life balance we all face. To address these needs, the Women’s Leadership Series combines the best practices of leadership skills and behaviors with reflective activities that will connect participants with their professional and personal selves.

Women’s Leadership Series

Our Women’s Leadership Series is designed for current or aspiring female leaders seeking progressive approaches to boosting self-confidence, influencing at all organizational levels, living a more balanced life, and inspiring other women to do the same. This series consists of five full-day workshops over five months and concludes with an actionable personal development plan as well as a knowledge-sharing celebration.

Day One, Thursday, February 16:  Personal Resiliency—Leadership Foundations

Day Two, Thursday, March 16:  Positive Psychology—The Key to True Success

Day Three, Thursday, April 13:  Emotional Intelligence—Engaging Yourself and Others

Day Four, Thursday, May 11:  The Power of Personality—Living Your Values and Managing Stress

Day Five, Thursday, June 15: Sustaining Success—Goal and Action Planning in the morning and Series Graduation and Reception in the afternoon


Our Priority Learning facilitators, Stacy, Amy, Deb, and I, look forward to taking you through this very important journey and we hope you have a great and happy Holiday Season!!

Personal Significance: A Choice

This is the second of a four-part article series looking at Measuring Your ROi – The Return on Your Individual Impact Investment. This series is developed by ActionsProve, LLC, a new impact and significance consulting practice.

Our first article focused on the non-profit sector, sharing how its value has been woven throughout our history. Fundamental to this is the power of us – as private individuals and corporate citizens - taking initiative to band together to meet needs not met by established institutions. We are the catalysts for social innovation and advancement, and it is up to us to choose to build a better tomorrow. Whether in connection with a non-profit organization or through an individual or corporate initiative, a desire for Personal Significance is essential for lasting impact.

Personal Significance is beyond personal growth and wellness. It is a choice. It is a narrow road. It can go against established cultural norms for adults – especially high-capacity adults. It takes constant focus and intentional effort to sustain. However, when pursued, it can create tremendous opportunities for impact, especially as our society shifts toward living with greater meaning and purpose.
