Work Happier & Live Better with Stella Grizont

Kayla is joined by author, speaker, and executive coach, Stella Grizont, to help readjust our mindset when it comes to fulfillment in the workplace. Most - too many probably - would agree that they’re either just going through the motions in the office or find themselves disengaging during work because we no longer feel a strong sense of purpose or even enjoyment in these environments. And instead we may feel cornered in our careers just to get to the next day. Well, Stella works with her clients to figure out how to reconfigure and build a skillset dedicated to improve our happiness, satisfaction, and engagement. Listen to learn more about her approach.
