If you’re not taking care of yourself your voice won’t be heard. When most of your energy is spent fighting the challenges of stress, overwhelm and worry you’re not able to take advantage of all of the opportunities that will present themselves for you. 

As a participant of the 2020 Authenticity Professional Women’s Retreat, you’ll learn the strategies you must practice every day to “Power Up for Your Next”, as well as how to overcome the roadblocks and obstacles that cause you to become stuck. No more feeling pulled in too many directions, self-doubt or lack of consistency.  You’ll learn helpful tools and develop clear action steps that will help you to accomplish your goals. 

10:30 - 12:00 Detective Force Field: Agent Change | Courtney Harper

Agent Change will be an interactive investigation of change and the impact on all facets of our lives. In this session, attendees will investigate the driving and restraining force that affect change, identify key components of their personal force field, and execute a force field analysis.

Create a fresh understanding of what you can accomplish, and a plan to evolve in meaningful ways.

 Meet Your Facilitators

Debbie Eberly

Debbie Eberly is a certified Jazzercise instructor and has been teaching Jazzercise for the past 26 years. She is also an ACE-certified Personal Trainer. Her passion is to motivate people to move.

Dancing is a fun way to get fit. If you can get your mind off of the fact that you are “exercising” and just have some fun, you will be more likely to stick with a movement program. Feeling better, looking more fit, having more energy, and losing weight are just some of the side benefits you’ll experience when you work with Debbie.

Learn more about Jazzercise at her FaceBook page Warrenton Jazzercise.
