Bestselling Author and Psychology Today Blogger Presents
“The Power of Passionate Work”
The Western North Carolina Human Resource Association (WNC HRA) is pleased to announce Gregg Levoy will be presenting his popular program, “The Power of Passionate Work,” on Monday, October 30th, at the Asheville Area Chamber of Commerce, in the boardroom, located on the second floor of the building. The day’s agenda includes brunch, networking time and a hands-on seminar. The program is open to anyone in the business community who could benefit from identifying what inspires passion in (work)life and what undermines it.
The session is facilitated by Gregg Levoy, one of the most popular presenters at last fall’s NC SHRM Conference at the U.S. Cellular Center. Attendees filled out feedback forms afterward, and comments included:
“Loved how he tied it all back to something we could use.”“My favorite session of the conference.”
“Thought provoking, insightful, engaging.”
“Thought provoking questions and quotes allowed for introspective reflection that I applied to both work and life.”
Levoy is the author of Vital Signs: Discovering and Sustaining Your Passion for Life, and the bestseller Callings: Finding and Following an Authentic Life — rated among the “Top 20 Career Publications” by the Workforce Information Group. He is also the former “behavioral specialist” at USA Today and a regular blogger for Psychology Today. A sought-after speaker, Levoy has presented at organizations including the Smithsonian Institution, the EPA and Microsoft, and is a frequent media guest on CNN, NPR and PBS.
The “Power of Passionate Work” is a dynamic session designed around a series of self-reflective questions to help participants identify passion in themselves, in those they lead at work, and in potential new employees. Through writing, discussion, small-group work, brainstorming, and humor, attendees clarify what inspires passion in their own (work)life and what defeats it; where they do their best work, and can make the most impact; and what they’re most passionately curious about.
Sign in begins at 8:30 a.m. and the program runs from 9 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Brunch is included. For more information and to register for “The Power of Passionate Work,” visit wnchra.org. The program is $99 for WNC HRA members and $149 for non-members. It includes four hours of general credit for SHRM and HRCI.
