  • A pre-succession planning organizational assessment

  • Common succession pitfalls

  • Resources and templates to use for developing your own plan

Nothing Happens to you.  Everything happens for you.

Friday, Nov. 22nd, 1:00 - 2:00 pm | Lighthouse, 2601 N Street

 

Everything in life is a lesson.  

If we don't learn lessons we stay stuck and then it seems like "everything happens to us."  We become victims.

If we do learn our lessons, we grow, learn and health.  We learn to do better in life.  When we learn to thrive we have a positive impact on ourselves, those we love, our coworkers and those we serve.  

This course will help equip you with tools to thrive at life.

 

TRAINER: Peter Allman, LMHP is the founder and President of the Board at Lighthouse. Lighthouse was created in 1990 by Peter and Maureen Allman and Jim Perry.  After visiting a similar facility in New York City called The Covenant House, they were told by several Lincoln community members that a safe place for teens was needed in Lincoln. Since the early days, the focus has been on education and high school graduation, along with providing recreation or socialization.

Pete also has a private counseling practice where he's been working with teens, adults, and families for 25 years. He has 3 books published.  At today's seminar, he will be drawing from "Shrink-Proof Your Life: Top Ten Ways to StayOff the Therapist's Couch.
