We’ve all heard it before: “You’re just too passionate.” What do you do when you’re at the intersection of your values, your profession…and your entire being? How do you respond when you hear something that shakes you to your core? This session provides an entirely new view of a MAX session! (MAX sessions are TED Talks, but with an SMPS flair [Market.Act.eXchange].) Starting with a Max-style story, hear how a veteran marketing professional explores how she endured painful feedback from a boss that resulted in deep personal introspection, and join us as a veteran mental health professional walks us through the experience with a new appreciation based on intentional practices for personal growth and healing. Come alongside a peer and learn how to live a life with passion, intention, and purpose. Hear the rest of the story through the eyes of a psychotherapist and see how you can enjoy the scenery of a healthy, fulfilling professional career.
