Michelle Jones, Ph.D. Organizational Psychology & Leadership & CEO of Wayfinding Academy

Superwoman Summit Session:

How to Do Something Epic

Many of us have aspirations to doing something epic with our lives and make a difference. Using Nancy Duarte’s concept of the venture scape that comes with starting a movement, I will talk about the importance of being in the fighting and climbing stages and will focus on two ket pieces of advice: (1) know your why and (2) it is not inevitable. When doing something no one has ever done before, it is hard to find role models to look up to, so hopefully this advice can help us all to be our own sources of inspiration when our work in the world seems hard.
