Herlong PortraitFind the Funny in Dysfuncton
Jane Herlong

Are you a “fixer”? We cannot control impossible people or dysfunctional circumstances. Sometimes, “ya hafta let it roll” and laugh at it! There is no reason we need to take on the negative. It only holds us back. Stressful situations only belong in your rearview mirror as you move forward.

Through her own dysfunctional states in life, Herlong empowers you to say “NO” to stress and “YES” to success. It is then you will find the “Funny in Dysfunction” to be able to function stress free and laugh all the way to being your personal best!

In this session, attendees enjoy Southern humor as Herlong addresses:

  • principled behavior for fool-proof results
  • embracing troubles to motivate your performance
