The U of Curve of Happiness: How to Get Happier as We Age

Leslie Appleton Young sits down for a conversation with Bernice Ross and Carol Facciponti-Malcolm

 

Data shows that, on average, life satisfaction drops during midlife and begins its recovery around age 50, reaching its peak at the end of life. In other words, people are happiest at the beginning and the end of their lives (hence the “U” and not an arch). Why? Join Leslie Appleton Young, Bernice Ross, and Carol Facciponti-Malcolm for a conversation about how retirement, reinvention, recovery, and resilience are woven into their happiness curves!

3 Women.

3 Perspectives.

300 Seconds Each.

 

Change is often viewed as unwelcome and uncomfortable. However, how do you process each season of your life before, during, and after a change? When do you know it is time to plan for something new or different?  Whether it is succession planning for your replacement, selling your business, being acquired, or a new season of life approaching- knowing when and how to navigate these changes is something that is rarely taught.

 

Listen in as these leaders share how they navigated the changes in their lives and careers… and how you can implement some of the key lessons they learned!

 

Highlighting: Nancy Robinson, Renée Roqué, Sabrina Brown, Kama Burton

1:55p * Wisdom Spotlight * Leading with Compassion

Together, we lead with compassion.


Compassion and empathy - as leaders, we seek to infuse both into our daily connections. They both require us to put ourselves in someone else’s shoes, but compassion takes it to another level as we seek to help find solutions.

 

People have always wanted to matter, and in this fast-paced high-tech world, especially post-Covid, it’s even more important. Get ready to soak in Tami’s wisdom as she shares with us why compassion is a strong skill that will keep clients and agents for life - and help us generate more income and experience a more fulfilling life.

2:25p * Closing Keynote * Creating a Future of Belonging: Together, we open our hearts + see each other.

Sit back and get ready for a mashup of comedic performance, a lesson in US history, a true confessional, and an invitation to consider the ways in which we experience and express bias and prejudice. All of us have formed opinions about “those people” even before we get to kindergarten. Stereotypes are everywhere.

 

To be seen and valued for who we are and what we can contribute is a basic human need. To what end do we become leaders? Not to replicate a system filled with bias and prejudice that values a race to the bottom while aiming for the top. By opening our hearts and truly seeing each other, women leaders create equitable and diverse workplaces where joy and trust are engines of our success.  

 

Highlighting: Irma Herrara
