Keywords: career, passion, motivation

There are different ways to find success in the workplace. Do you dread going to work every day? The key to staying motivated is to have a passion for what you are doing. Are your day-to-day duties playing to your strengths? A good team has diverse talents and uses them wisely. Do you sometimes feel like you are an impostor? If you answer yes, then ironically, you may be on the right track. The objectives of this concurrent session are to ask questions to find out what thoughts are in people’s heads about bosses, co-workers, passions, and careers. I will present observations from my career, but also weave in thought-provoking questions to the audience to stimulate a fruitful conversation about motivation in one’s career.
