We invite you to join us for a Power Hour you will never forget. This WIFI Power Hour is an opportunity to have your cup refilled as we explore the coaching experience. Are you pouring from an empty cup? Do you feel stuck or frozen in an area of your life? Do you struggle to know what doors are closing and what doors are opening? Do you ultimately want to be one who pours into the lives of others? Have a notebook and pen ready as we engage in a coaching conversation that will leave you refreshed, recharged and refilled! Power Hours are free.
