– Mindfulness in all facets of life.. and even death
– Millennials in the workplace
– Bringing our whole selves to work
– The genderless soul
David also left us with two simple yet profound questions as we kick-off 2019:
1) Where do I need to be supported in my life?
2) Where do I need to be a support?
He also left listeners with these provocative questions related to your career and personal life:
1) What do you want to serve?
2) What would be something exciting that, at the end of your life, you can look back and say that it meant something?
