With immeasurable accolades, including two Grammys and the distinction of being one of the few songwriters honored by the Library of Congress and US Poet Laureate, Prine is more than a musician…

RMHRPS Presents How to Make Better Choices in Life and Work: A Morning with Chip Heath

Time: 8:00 am - 10:30 am

Location: May 14: How to Make Better Choices in Life and Work: A Morning with Chip Heath

Web Site: www.rmhrps.org

May 14: How to Make Better Choices in Life and Work: A Morning with Chip Heath 

Do you want to learn practical tools to make better decisions in work and life from one of the most preeminent thinkers in the business world?

Together with our partner, the Daniels College of Business at the University of Denver, Rocky Mountain HR People and strategy is thrilled to announce a first-ever event on May 14th: A morning with New York Times Bestselling Author, Stanford Graduate Business Professor, and organizational behavior guru Chip Heath.

Chip will be discussing his new book, Decisive: How to Make Better Choices in Life and Work.

Don't wait! Reserve your seat now! The first 500 people to sign up for the event will receive a copy of Decisive with an inscription by Chip Heath!
  
In Decisive, Chip Heath and Dan Heath, the bestselling authors of Made to Stick and Switch, tackle the thorny problem of how to overcome our natural biases and irrational thinking to make better decisions, about our work, lives, families, and organizations.

When it comes to decision making, our brains are flawed instruments. But given that we are biologically hard-wired to act foolishly and behave irrationally at times, how can we do better? A number of recent bestsellers have identified how irrational our decision making can be. But being aware of a bias doesn't correct it, just as knowing that you are nearsighted doesn't help you to see better. 

Drawing on extensive studies, stories and research, Chip will offer specific, practical tools that can help us to think more clearly about our options and make wiser, bolder decisions at work and at home.

Time: 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Location: Penrose Library, Carnegie Room, 20 N. Cascade Ave, Colorado Springs

Web Site: http://pikespeakwriters.com

May Write Brain
Topic: Manifestation of Yearning: The Flesh & Blood Factor of Good Storytelling
Speaker: Page Lambert, Author, Editor, Creative Coach, Retreat Director
Location: Penrose Library, Carnegie Room, 20 N. Cascade Ave., Colorado Springs, CO
Date & Time: Tuesday, May 21, 6:30 P.M. to 8:30 P.M.

MANIFESTATION OF YEARNING: The Flesh & Blood Factor of Good Storytelling

Yearning: A longing. A desire. An unfulfilled wish. A questioning. A hunger to know more.
In Page Lambert’s words: “First, enter the white-hot center of why you write. Second, enter the white-hot center of deep yearning…yours…your character’s. Third, enter the place where you dream. Let your vision and words rise like smoke from the creative fire. But manifesting our stories takes more than illusive desires. Our characters interpret the world through their senses, but we create their world through physical detail. Yearning comes alive through detail.” During the May Write Brain, Page will explore these ideas and more, helping us enter the white-hot center of detailed storytelling. “Whether you’re writing fiction or memoir, the deep (and sometimes dark) motivations behind every action, beneath every word–what Robert Olen Butler calls the yearning factor—is how we manifest our stories.”
About Page Lambert: Recipient of numerous writing awards, her books include the Rocky Mountain best-selling memoir In Search of Kinship and Mountains & Plains Best Novel finalistShifting Stars. Her essays, stories and poems appear in dozens of anthologies. Page has presented over 200 seminars and keynotes. She’s been leading writing adventures for 17 years and Oprah’s O magazine once featured her River Writing Journeys as “One of the top six great all-girl getaways of the year.” She writes the popular blog, “All Things Literary. All Things Natural.” www.pagelambert.com.
