    Still thinking about The Leadership Vault Program?
    Here is a quote that reflects the philosophy underpinning why we come together…

    “A life most fully lived is not always composed of the things that rock you awake, but those that slowly assure you it’s okay to slow down.  That you don’t always have to prove yourself. That you don’t need to fight forever….And when those big moments come, which they will, you’ll experience them in a way you didn’t before…. That life can only grow outward in proportion to how stable it is inward – – that if the joy is not in the little things first, the big things don’t fully find us.”
    — Brianna Wiest
