Mary LoVerde explains why finding fulfillment and solving our problems hinges first and foremost on “connecting” with ourselves, others, and what we do. Acknowledging that experts offer tons of contradicting strategies about work/life balance and time management, she pinpoints the flaws in using these tactics as life philosophies and argues that focusing on connection takes priority over them.
Examining time management she points out, “For every hour that I save, I have ten hours of demands competing for it…Unless we learn to connect, no amount of managing, organizing, delegating, prioritizing, or simplifying is going to make you feel good – and feeling good is what life-balance is about.”
Internationally recognized expert in life-work balance, Mary LoVerde offers proven strategies for thriving and finding happiness in a world of overwhelming distractions, long, stressful workdays and the never-finished race to get it all done. Her innovative, practical ideas center on staying connected to what’s really important. Mary’s laugh-out loud stories, meaningful dialogues, and tested takeaways will leave you with the tools to build stronger relationships, produce real-world results, and stay tethered to what makes you happy.

Leadership/Career Development: Ready To Take Your Next Step?
In a research study of thousands of business leaders,* women outscored men in all but ONE of the 16 leadership competencies. What was it? “Develops a Strategic Perspective.” More men than women focus on developing skills and relationships that support their success. In this high-content program, you’ll get clear about what you want and what you need to quit in order to advance your career and develop an improved strategic perspective. There’s no reason we can’t make it 16 out of 16. (*Jack Zenger, Joseph Folkman, Harvard Business Review)
“After experiencing your talk on two occasions, I am fascinated by the way you seem to lift the audience out of complacency into action with your touching stories and sound advice.” Karel Horney, American Heart Association
“It is rare indeed to find someone who can stand in front of a class of 500 educators and make each and every one of them feel special and valuable.” Maria Grier, Director Chapman University
“You touched the lives of everyone in that room including senior level executives from clinical research, vice presidents and CEOs from pharmaceutical, biotechnical, medical device and contract research organizations. Many delegates approached me to say it was a perfect conference. I believe this was because of you.” Andrea Szigethy, Vice President Institute for International Research
“I count myself fortunate to have heard many of the world′s leading presenters, but rarely have I witnessed anyone who delivers their message with the simple intensity that you have mastered. At every conference there are always one of two speakers who steal the show. In your case you didn′t so much steal it, as hijack it.” Tim Webster, Director Bodylife, Ltd United Kingdom
“It is obvious that Mary′s high energy, engaging style, combined with a sincere and self effacing manner, established a very quick rapport with all participants.” Richard Palmer, Jr., Discover Cards
