Sheri Hoffmann, Writer-Humorist: Going from Constant Yes to Contented Yes

Benicia writer and community volunteer, Sheri Hoffmann is excited to present a new outlook on boundaries for those who are constantly asked to help, give or volunteer. We will explore, rethink and redefine the use of boundaries, and get a fresh perspective on where we can significantly reduce the stress of over-commitment. This session is for anyone who feels the constant pressure to take on a project, committee, event, task or activity. We will learn a tool that will filter out the “shoulds,” and will put us in the right places to give our gifts of talent, passion and time. With humor and compassion, this presentation will help us manage the flow of daily requests in order to find each YES we were meant for.

Linda Lesem, Career and Life Coach: Exploring What Makes You Tick in Work and Life

Join Linda Lesem for an introductory workshop that identifies the most important areas to consider when exploring good matches for us in our work and life. We are pulled in so many directions and are influenced by the outside world to such an extreme, that remembering who we are often eludes us. To tune in to our truest selves, we will pay special attention to understanding our personality type, which is an integral part of our personal profile. Linda’s coaching tools will help identify our interests, strengths and values, and bring clarity around what makes us tick.

Day Two: Saturday, October 21, 2017 – 10am-4pm
Jennifer Sherwood, Life Coach: Reigning in Your Inner Critic

Join certified life coach Jennifer Sherwood to understand how that sneaky inner critic impacts us, how to identify it, to lessen its grip — and ultimately change how we talk to yourselves. Your inner critic is sneaky, subtle, and often operates behind the scenes. It’s as if there is a tape playing on a loop in the back of your mind berating you. It influences how we think, feel, and respond in the world. But we don’t have to be at its mercy any longer. In this interactive workshop you will learn to:

  • Recognize where our inner critic puts up roadblocks to prevent change.
  • Get familiar with
  • the ways our inner critic works.
  • Separate facts from interpretation, staying grounded in the
  • facts.
  • Shift our negative self-talk.
