Michelle Hlywa will discuss how to foster creativity in the workplace, and the benefits of being creative, when so many roles move in the opposite direction.
About Speaker:"For over 20 years I did exactly what was expected of me. I graduated college, secured gainful employment, worked my way to the very top of the professional ladder, started a family, bought a house, and felt utterly DISSATISFIED. My career was highly technical yet my mind was glowing in creativity. I felt disconnected from the outside world and isolated in my own bubble of ""success"". I felt an undeniable pull from deep within to be a part of something larger than myself. I knew I was meant for much more than building strong companies. I spent my career removing process waste, aligning cultures, empowering teams, and transforming companies into automated lean-thinking synergistic powerhouses, it was time to sprinkle some of that magic into my own life. A few years ago I set off on an exploration for answers:Am I enough? Is there a better way? Where do I fit in? Do I want to fit in? Why can't I just be happy? Do I have anything authentic to say? Am I a good mom? Am I a good employee? Do I deserve a better life? Am I unique? Is this the best life has to offer? Up until that point I was a product of my environment. I had lived life by default, not design. I never knew how I had always shattered glass ceilings, it seemed to come natural to me. I had never taken the time to focus my aim and perfect my trajectory…until I did.
