Reset Your Mindset


In the last few years, has there ever been a time you have lost your focus, lost your energy, or lost your way? In Reset your Mindset, we will help you discover your WHY and find your WAY. As a professional coach for over a decade, I have found 80% of adults have not identified what their central purpose is. We are going to guide you through a series of exercises and questions that will help you identify what that is for you. Next, what separates the good from the great is mindset. We will take you past all the fluffy talk about Mindset, and get real about how it is formed and what actions steps you can take to improve or maintain it, and have some fun along the way. You will walk away from this event with a personalized plan on what you can do to improve your positive mindset and how to keep your purpose in focus at all times. 

On a scale from 1 to 10, how would you rank your mindset and mental wellness? Anything less than a 10, you need to invest in yourself and attend Reset you Mindset. Your future self will thank you!

Derek brings HIGH energy to the room! He reminded me “WHY” I do what it is that I do! He is inspiring and made me really go deep and think! He helped me re-align my thoughts and activities. We all seem to get so wrapped up in the day to day of what it is we actually “do” …and this helped me get back to center. I highly recommend this class for anyone and at any stage of your business!”

Question: What does an ancient Greek word have to do with my life/business?

Answer: Everything.

In life and in business, we tend to consider excellence a destination. We strive for an unattainable level of perfection which can leave us feeling defeated, our full potential unfulfilled.

The word Arete symbolizes a powerful concept: the pursuit of excellence.

The word Life symbolizes our experience as human beings.

Executive Group Coaching

When working in a group setting – although it’s not singular in nature – having the entire group’s input in thinking magnifies the richness of the discussions and results in developing solutions that are above and beyond what any individual can create. The cohesive bond that is formed empowers each person to develop the leader within and shine in a safe environment that nurtures the group as a whole. It is an experience unlike any other and follows the same premise as an academic think tank.
