    Be Deliberate, Look Reckless

    Everyone wants to "thrive," but do we really know what it means? Popular success stories would have us believe that thriving happens after adversity. Yet, what if your opportunity to thrive isn't beyond your adversity, but in its midst? Join Dr. Sherri as she invites you to thrive IN adversity by being deliberate and looking reckless. You will discover your personal growth opportunities in barren spaces, how to leverage feelings as information not fact, and three questions to keep you deliberate on your journey to thrive in any and every circumstance.

    ABOUT THE SPEAKER

    Dr. Sherri  left the comforts of her rural-town clinical psychology practice to answer the risk-everything call from within to revolutionize how the world thinks about mental health. She believes in the desire and fortitude of every person to adopt a thriving mindset (self-honoring, adversity-embracing, and growth-willing) that positively impacts reality, and effectively influences others to do the same. She is a Thought Coach, Podcaster, and published Author. Dr. Sherri extends her message globally through her new non-profit, Thriving Thoughts Global, designed to teach women across the globe, in their native languages, how to thrive through the simple power of thought. Dr. Sherri lives in the United States and is inspired daily by thriving life-lessons from her two hounds, Leia and Luka.

    Accessing the Hidden Job Market

    According to many career experts, up to 80% of all jobs are concealed from traditional job boards like Indeed, CareerBuilder and trade publications. By leveraging their private networks, employers limit the quantity of applicants while boosting quality. (Bonus tip for recruiters: when done with intention, this process can enhance workforce diversity.)

    Tapping listservs, social media and 1-1 outreach, they ask one simple question:

    “Who do you know that would be a good fit for this job?”

    The more trusted relationships you can develop with people in your profession or industry, the more likely the answer to that question will be: YOU!
