2023 Trailhead Sessions

Each morning we’ll have several concurrent Trailhead sessions to set the tone for the day. The balance of the day will be structured as Open Space to allow whoever is interested to propose hosting one or more sessions.

Beyond the Obvious
Meeting constraints with confidence

Join Nicole to see beyond the obvious and find what lies ahead:
Explore characters
Experience perspectives
Experiment with communication
Evolve out of your comfort zone
Examine attitudes and assumptions

Nicole will set the stage through her story of conquering challenges to be seen as a person.

Nicole is a photographer, a philosopher, an entrepreneur, an Associate Consultant with People Minded Business (PMB), and an international medalist in three sports.
