PMI New Jersey Chapter
PMINJ 2022 Oct Women in Leadership LCI

When your WHY is greater than your HOW

17 October - 7:00 to 8:00 pm
Jodi Hope Grinwald
Virtual using Zoom


How many times have you thought about something you wanted to do, a goal you wanted to set, but then the thought of how you were going to make it happen stopped you in your tracks. The story we tell ourselves and our inner critic is what holds us back.

During this presentation you will hear more about how to change your internal commentary and how to take steps to get yourself closer to the things you may not think are even possible. When your why is so great, the how can no longer hold you back.
