The One Decision: It's Your Life, Make it Great Do you want a great life? A life filled with more success, meaning, satisfaction, money, time, and energy? Judith Wright, entrepreneur, best-selling author, and consultant, has discovered that the secret to success depends on a single decision, what she calls “The One Decision.” In this inspiring and powerful presentation, Judith shares what she has found in training and coaching countless business people and executives—a great life doesn’t just happen, you must choose it. A One Decision is a single powerful, life-transforming commitment to live a great life. Your One Decision will define every other choice you make, every goal you set and achieve. For business leaders, the One Decision helps you orient to a unifying principle that makes a tangible difference in your business, career, home, and community life. But to do that, it’s imperative that we reject a dissatisfied, sleepwalking existence and be fully present in an adventurous new kind of life—not just on the job but also at home, in relationships, and in our communities. This seismic shift in awareness and purpose, says Wright, is the key to a satisfying life. For Judith this is no empty promise, she has coached and trained people for over 20 years who have made this commitment and have turned their lives around to be more meaningful, fulfilling, and successful. Learn how your One Decision is the compass that guides you.

Overcoming Soft Addictions: Take Back Your Time, Money, & Energy!

“Recently featured on ABC’s 20/20” If someone broke into your house, stole your money, put you in a trance, and kept you locked up for a week would you be angry? Of course you would! But that is exactly what happens to us every day when we let our bad habits, or soft addictions, get in the way of our productivity, our intimacy, and ultimately our dreams. But there is hope. We can easily regain hours of wasted time, thousands of wasted dollars, and a sense of meaning and purpose in our lives simply by paying attention to where our soft addictions are getting in our way. Judith Wright will show you how.

Life Purpose and Spirit

Would you like to wake up each morning feeling excited about your day and knowing your life makes a difference in the world? Would you like to go to sleep each night feeling fulfilled that you accomplished your goals and made a difference in the lives of the people you know? You can, when you discover your life purpose and live from it. Following the methodology laid out in Judith Wright’s bestselling book The One Decision, you will discover how to live a purposeful life. For us, spirituality is humanity--full human development is spiritual development--we do not believe these can be separated. Life purpose is why we live; what we call our One Decision drives the highest “how” we will live; and goals are what we do.

When Mars and Venus Collide: Maximizing the Unique Difference

If you have been reading the newspapers recently, you know that countless research studies are illustrating the very real biological and neurological differences between the sexes. But let’s not be stopped at our Mars and Venus differences. The biological and chemical differences in male and female brains leads to differences in how we process information, relate to information, and communicate. Learn how the differences in your biochemistry and brain structure impacts how you communicate and do business. Best-selling author, Judith Wright will explore differences between men and women in the workplace and give you insights, perspectives and tools to more effectively work with, relate to and communicate with the opposite sex. As you learn about the differences in male and female brain functioning, you will find synergies you hadn’t imagined by learning to respect, honor, and leverage your unique strengths and weaknesses. Rather than judge others for not being like you, you’ll find neurological explanations for phenomena you previously labeled as negative, and instead develop an awareness and appreciation for how the other gender is wired. Through these new discoveries, you will learn to consciously design your teamwork, and interactions to take advantage of these inherent differences at work, at home, and in your life.

The Myth of Balance: Having It All

“I need to find balance!” How many times have these words entered your mind or escaped your lips? In this powerful, controversial and inspiring talk JUDITH WRIGHT will shake you out of the fantasy perpetuated by our society and ourselves. Balance is a myth. Ask anyone who lives a busy but fulfilling life. But do not despair. There is a richness and fullness to living and keeping all aspects of your life successful and rewarding. You can have a successful career and a satisfying personal life, but first you need to make a bigger commitment about what your life is going to be about.
