Re-Ignite Your Purpose: Conversations with Munira, Part 2 - Perception: How You See the World
We see the world differently from one another. What impacts how you see the world? How do you decide what you believe to be true? Our perceptions are based on our experiences, our culture, our community. This week, we will examine the role that perception plays in how we view the world.
Join us for the second session of a six-part series on maximizing your potential, hosted by Munira Premji. Munira is a three-time cancer survivor, HR practitioner, and an accredited coach. Weaving her personal stories with professional best practices, Munira will discuss key concepts that are needed to define our purpose and bring our best self forward. This Munira will be in conversation with Leila Rahemtulla, an instructor, management consultant and author.
