Kathy Dempsey, Certified Professional Coach, Energy Leadership Index Assessment, Expert Practitioner, MBA, CPA
In this presentation especially if you are a crossroads in your life and are yearning to move forward in your career, Kathy will discuss 4 inner blocks that can stop you.  Inner blocks are those produced within you.  They disrupt and distract you from success.  The four inner blocks are: (1) beliefs you have about your world and your environment, (2) ways in which you apply and integrate your past experiences into the present moment, (3) interpretations you create about events and people and, (4) that inner critic that derails your attempts to achieve and accomplish your goals.  By looking at these inner blocks carefully and objectively, you can release the hold they have on you and become more successful.       
About Kathy:  Kathy has been a member of the FENG for several years.  Kathy worked for 25 years in various financial roles including CFO and COO.  She worked for a Fortune 500 company, large professional associations and a business consulting firm.  During this time, she found that she enjoyed coaching and mentoring she became a certified professional coach.  She coaches her clients on how to find and live their ideal career.
