Join Sarah Crawford (Sitawi Life Coaching, LLC) & Mike Shereck (Transformational Leadership Experience) for a special program “Living an Authentic Life,” Thursday, November 14th at 6:30pm at the Neenah Public Library. Authenticity is the beginning of trust and removes barriers to communication.  It opens pathways for curiosity, vulnerability and ultimately courage. It also isn’t always easy.  The first step in becoming more authentic is to be honest about where you are inauthentic.  Join Sarah & Mike for an engaging, passionate and perhaps uncomfortable conversation about bringing more of your authentic expression to life and work. No registration required for this free workshop.
