Last week I was so fortunate to be a part of the two-day training Principal hosted in Annapolis MD. The leaders of this training were Coleman Ruiz and the Team from O2X. I have included their respective websites below.
The focus was on Nutrition, corporate fitness, mindfulness and sleep. You may recall that this same team was on stage at our national sales meeting when I got the news that my cancer had reared its head again. I was excited to be back with them after seeing positive results. Thank you to this team for setting me on a good path. I absolutely picked up a few things last week that will aid my recovery going forward and others might find useful.
Principal values their employees in such an amazing way that they recognize the stronger we are physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually the more effective we will be in every aspect of our life. I am grateful for this support. I thought you may find some of the highlights of value as you work towards improving your awesomeness! Today what are you doing to be 1% better!
The Picture is the team I did my morning sweat with.
We do 4 things in our job each day:
– Functional Excellence is table stakes
