Be Open to Learning

Presented by Julie Kowalski

 Presented by
Julie Kowalski
Have you "hit a wall" so to speak, in business? Even though you might be presently stuck, if you're committed to breaking through, eager to learn a few new tricks, and in pursuit of expertise and best practices to help critical breakthroughs move forward FAST, then this is the workshop for you!
Julie will be sharing some of her "new tricks" during her presentation. By the end of her talk, you will have clear insight into how you may be sabotaging your own learning curve and identify new habits that will allow you to learn with focused purpose.
There is usually one thing certain to keep you from identifying your best opportunities, ideas, and solutions. Learn:
  • A proven method for pushing self-imposed barriers out of the way so you can identify what you need to be learning next.
  • How to find your answers by simply paying more attention. 
  • How asking strategic questions can help you avoid creating roadblocks to learning.
President of Creative Partnerships, Inc., Julie Kowalski has spent her entire career solving performance problems that were holding great people and companies back from accomplishing their mission-critical goals. She worked for a renowned restaurateur with a zero-defects business model and insistence that everything be perfect on opening night (something that was virtually unheard of in the industry at the time). Under his tutelage, Julie quickly discovered what it took to master her own learning curve while helping others meet her bosses exacting standards. Since then, Julie has worked with businesses of all types: large and small, successful and distressed, functional and dysfunctional. Seeing problems from different perspectives helped her figure out what worked and what didn't when it came to navigating new and sometimes treacherous waters.

Our Vision
In our vision, we emphasize holism as a way of being, conducting business and interacting with our local and global communities.
Our Mission
Our mission, here in Oakland County, through education and awareness, is to include business and industries that are not typically viewed as holistic. We develop the vision to include us all. We focus on expanding our definitions of success to include well-beingand the bottom line. We bring the concept/practices of financial strength and know-how to the "holistic" business community, while bringing well-being, holistic thinking and increased profitability to "traditional" businesses and industry.
