July 31 - Engagement, Well-being, and Your Greatest Contribution

Tom Rath, author of six international bestsellers, will share his latest research about how small choices profoundly affect our daily well-being and effectiveness at work.  Drawing on the latest research from business, psychology, and economics, Tom's talk will focus on the most practical changes we can make to create better days for ourselves and others. He will address the importance of meaningful work, the influence of relationships and interactions, and discuss how we can create the physical energy we need in order to be our best every day.
