Break on Through

2022 Keynote Presentation by Troy Stende

The only thing that can truly get in your way and stop you from having tremendous success in your life is you. In this high-energy session, we’ll take a look at self-imposed barriers that keep you from achieving what you want. Then you'll accomplish something you probably never thought you could to figuratively and literally break through your barriers. To be a good leader and team member you have to know who you are. This includes knowing your strengths and weaknesses. You’ll take an honest look at what you do that’s not serving you in a supportive environment. Past participants have gone on to accomplish life-long dreams, end procrastination, quit addictions, lose weight, increase confidence and create more meaningful relationships. Break on through to the other side of your self-imposed limitations! 

Learning Outcomes:

  • Participants will gain self-awareness of barriers they put into their own lives.
  • Participants will be motivated to take positive action to overcome their barriers.
  • Participants will gain confidence in their ability to accomplish goals.
  • Participants will experience and give support to others.
  • Participants will create trust amongst each other.
