JUNE 14 | Brain-washed: How to Dump Stinkin' Thinkin'

Every person on the planet has struggled at some point with limiting beliefs. When we have "stinkin' thinkin," we procrastinate, vacillate, hesitate ... and our best self hides in the shadows.

Presenter: Susan Britton Whitcomb, PCC, Founder and President of The Academies, Inc., is a leading authority on career coach training. Her fascination with a brain-friendly approach to training coaches led her to earn her designation as a Master Certified Neuropositive Coach with the Applied Neuroscience Institute. She has personally mentored hundreds of coaches on five continents in achieving their career coaching certification. Author of 7 books, including a long-time best-seller Resume Magic, Whitcomb is a frequent source for the media (The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, US News & World Report), as well as an in-the-trenches, experienced coach who has worked with thousands of professional, management, and executive job seekers during her career.
