TARRA Essentials: Radical Intellectual Self-Care for Leaders

January 12 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm MST

- $25
Danielle Shoots will provide you with tools for self-management so that you can be your highest self in and out of the workplace.

The importance of caring for yourself in leadership is more important than ever before. This isn’t about bubble baths and spa days. It’s the tool to practice showing up as authentic and compassionate leaders, managers, and business owners throughout your day. What is intellectual self-care? Knowing oneself and one’s environment. It is taking agency over your daily tasks, schedules, responsibilities and relations within your environment in ways that better care for your physical, emotional and mental well-being as leaders. Danielle will provide great takeaways, so make sure to come with your favorite note taking devices.

Following Danielle’s presentation Margaret James will lead participants in a reflective meditation. Those in attendance will be guided through how to navigate the changing seasons and the start of a new year. To facilitate a relaxing and calming space, TARRA invites and highly encourages you to attend in comfortable attire. You should also find a comfortable location, including a few pillows or yoga mat, for Margaret’s meditation.
