Expect Great Things To Happen: Five Core Principles of Highly Effective Business Professionals

We have often been told, never bring your personal life to work. Yet rarely, if ever, are we told to leave work life in the office.

What many people strive for today is a healthy life balance, the ability to both excel in their careers and enjoy their personal life. They seek to manage the personal experiences that can negatively impact their professional life, as well as minimize work stress that can bear down on their personal lives.

Expect Great Things to Happen: Five Core Principles of Highly Effective Business Professionals is for business professionals from entry-level and middle management, all the way up to senior level. It provides a clear blueprint to advance your career while having a positive impact in the lives of others. By working with the five principles, you will develop the skills it takes to be a “business athlete.”

Sharing secrets of The Moth’s time-honed process and using examples from beloved storytellers, Kate Tellers will show you how to

  • Mine Your Memories for Your Best Stories
  • Explore Structures that will Boost the Impact of Your Story
  • Deliver Your Stories with Confidence
