The WisdomCollective.ca presents...

A set of 6 powerful workshops for successful professionals ready to more effectively leverage their creative initiative, focus and untapped potential.

Do people tell you how smart you are, yet you are sometimes distracted easily, don’t complete what you start, procrastinate or struggle with impulsiveness?  Tired of breaking promises to yourself?  

Don't try to fix this on your own!

Declutter your thinking and tune up your self discipline in a lively, creative group of successful, motivated like-minded professionals who also want you to be your best.


  1. Stay FOCUSED on task despite today's increasing distractions.
  2. Develop empathy to ENGAGE those you lead and GRIT to complete your great initiatives.
  3. Strengthen DISCIPLINE and HABITS for better consistency, impulse control and resilience under pressure.


Six in-person, small group, confidential meetings to strengthen self-discipline, confidence, focus and accountability through education, honesty, tools, practice and support.  Sessions will cover (1) the neuroscience of these patterns; (2) how to strengthen more effective beliefs and thinking patterns; all this with the support and accountability to make it happen for yourself.  

Tips that might help:  Fuel Your Focus.
