Discover Your Sweet Spot.
Life as a freelancer can make you crazy. We're constantly balancing competing demands and trying to figure out how to do things that have never quite been done before. And to make matters worse, we are bombarded by new "best practices," "life hacks," and "secrets of success" everyday. It's easy to feel overwhelmed, demoralized and confused.
Einstein described insanity as doing the same thing and expecting different results. If that's true, then there's one question that can help you get sane again: how's that working for ya?
Join us for a conversation on how this one question can unlock a simple process to help you discover your sweet spot, build on your strengths and make it easier to let go of things that just don't work anymore.

About Our Speaker
Ben Kadel (rhymes with bottle) is a social psychologist who specializes in the emotional dynamics of work and work groups. He has spent the last 15 years or so figuring out what it takes to help people do work that is both personally fulfilling and materially successful. He is on a personal mission to convert all the energy that is currently wasted in fear, doubt, confusion and conflict into productive energy moving people towards goals that really matter.
Ben brings over a decade of organizational development experience and a unique mix of skills to every project he facilitates. Equally at home with hard data or hot emotions, Ben has developed an approach that understands the basic fundamentals—structure, process, and culture—required to create an effective and productive workplace whether that’s a workplace for a freelancer or a large department.
He has a PhD in sociology from the University of Wisconsin – Madison and is a founding partner of Emotus Operandi. He is an engaging speaker, accomplished writer and snappy dresser – even if he does say so himself.
Emotus Operandi is a new process created by Ben Kadel PhD. and a cross-disciplinary team of experienced professionals to effectively harness your energy to make real progress on those big goals that mean so much, but seem so hard to achieve.
