Based on his highly rated keynote at the Cannexus18 National Career Development Conference, Spencer Niles will now be offering an expanded version of his presentation in the form of a three-part webinar series.

This webinar series directs your focus to honouring your authentic self within your career. The pace of living today and the pressure to cope within an increasingly complex career context make it easy to disconnect you from what you do (a soul-spirit disconnect). These disconnections can have disastrous effects on a person’s life. It doesn’t have to be this way, however. There are steps you can take to increase your soul-spirit connection in your life. Increasing the soul-spirit connection empowers you to live a life well-lived.

The content of this webinar can be applied to your own career reflection or your work with any client group.
