What is SafePlace?

Finding Your SafePlace is a straightforward, habit changing seminar taught by expert executive coach and consultant Joe Humphries. When Joe speaks to your leadership team, he will help them:

• Protect what’s most critical —health, family, and success
• Proactively avoid personal crises
• Prioritize and invest in the most essential relationships
• Discover the connection between accountability and long-term success

Why is it important?

Today, only a few leaders focus on success without protecting the relationships and resources that contribute most to it. While this bears fruit in the short term, it constrains productivity and often leads to avoidable crises such as burnout. Finding Your SafePlace teaches you and your team to prioritize and guard the often-forgotten ingredients necessary for repeated success.
