and community system change. Using the arts with reflective and interactive team activities, you will discover tools to amplify your curiosity,
compassion and courage and launch you toward your emerging future! You will:

SP12 Deep Dive Disruption: Find Your Wavelength
Personal Disruption is not just a novel concept leading to greater fulfillment and creativity, but rather a necessity in 2017 and into the future. Driven by the exponential growth of technology, the world is full of unpredictability and an increasing pace of life that leaves a feeling of insecurity and instability. Even though life sometimes feels like a tsunami that is uncontrollable, overwhelming and unstoppable, there are ways to navigate this storm. While people have surfed oceans for decades, in this session we will take you on a unique surf trip, learning to ride and master your biggest waves. Disruption is about choice. You will either be a disruptor, be disrupted or in denial. What's it going to be for you? You will:
• Identify roadblocks in all aspects of your life.
• Practice and learn tools, techniques and exercises that can amplify growth.
• Develop a master plan and first set of action items for the following weeks.
