Happiness Strategy: Does Having It All Mean Greater Happiness?
"Having it all" seems to go hand in hand with being a success – or so we're told. Research on happiness, and the emerging science of neuro-counseling, is shifting the happiness paradigm and providing a clear roadmap for how "having enough" is actually the way to balance all aspects of one's life.
Thursday’s optional paid luncheon and presentation features Tammy H. Scheidegger, associate professor, Mount Mary University M.S. in Counseling Program, Milwaukee. Dr. Scheidegger shares her perspectives on the latest happiness research and strategies for achieving balance in your personal and professional life. Sponsored by Godfrey & Kahn S.C.
