Directing Our Path

By Lizzy Munter I grew up in "the city" and lived there my whole life. I loved the convenience of being close to everything.

Coaching Tip: Practice Pushing Pause

Think about any given stressful situation that you have been in, whether alone, with a single individual or a group and consider what might have taken place if you had just pushed the pause button for 15 seconds.
