"The Power of Encouragement: How to Give It and How To Get It"

Encouragement is defined as the action of giving support, confidence, or hope.  At times encouragement can be the wind beneath someone's wings during challenging times.  Often the acceptance of encouragement is challenging, especially for women.  In this interactive discussion we will review some of the best encouragement we have received, given, and how to open ourselves to be more receptive of the encouragement we are offered.
