Avoiding burnout and adopting a values-driven way of living for the ultimate in fulfillment and joy

Leading and Living with Soul

What if I told you that I could give you a gift that would be vitally important to your career success, your personal and professional fulfillment, and your overall happiness? Would you scream, “heck yes Denise, give it to me NOW!?” Most sane people absolutely would. Well, what if I told you that gift is already inside of you, you just have to tap into it?

Turns out, that gift is your personal values. Who you are, what you hold dear, what upsets you, and what underlies your decisions as a leader and as a unique individual, are all connected to your personal values. But the missed opportunity is, most people never take the time to learn what those precious and powerful intrinsic things are! In this session you will have the opportunity to do an introspective reflection on your very own personal values by completing an online Personal Values Assessment. I will then share with you practical strategies you can implement immediately to apply these values in your daily routines, allowing you to use your values as a driving force and a personal true north star.

Following the session, you will be able to seek out the things in life that are aligned to the values you have uncovered and this my friend, is a real game changer. Soon you will use what you learn to unleash a life and career that you love, one that makes you feel healthy, fulfilled and balanced.

Reigniting passion and purpose in exhausted team members to keep doing this important work

Tired to Inspired

You came into the aging services field wanting to make a difference in the lives of others, but after a few years you found yourself feeling more tired than inspired! That’s especially true after 2020. In this powerful presentation, you’ll discover the astonishing underlying cause of the fatigue that so often turns the most idealistic and well-intentioned team members into part of the problem. You’ll find out how doing the right thing, in every sense of the word will have the hearts of your team brimming with the love and enthusiasm that led them into aging services in the first place. You’ll take an exhilarating round trip from tired to inspired and return filled with new ideas and concepts, and a simple but amazingly effective system to raise and sustain everyone’s energy.

Denise Boudreau is founder of Drive, a culture consultancy firm that optimizes recruitment and retention, exclusively for healthcare and senior living organizations.

She has over 20 years of experience working in acute care and aging services where, as a dietary aide, CNA and Administrator, she experienced many healthy and unhealthy cultures.

Denise became nicknamed “The Queen of Culture” when others started to notice that she had a bit of a vigorous addiction to it: not only did she found Drive, but she also founded the non-profit New Jersey Alliance for Culture Change (as one does) in between chairing the Marketing Committee for the National Long Term Care Administrators’ Board (NAB) and serving as an Executive in Residence at Cornell, her alma mater, where she received her Master’s in—ready for it?—Health Administration after completing a Bachelor of Science in Gerontology from the University of Scranton.

Denise has dedicated her life to being both an excellent microwaver as well as a sought out thought leader in the healthcare and senior living field—we won’t even mention the boards she serves on. In her spare time, she is proudly known as “The Servant of Tiny Tim,” as she is at the beck and call of her corgi/chihuahua mix, as well as the mother of twin boys (who as adults, are no longer allowed to beck and call her)

She lives in Key West, her superpower is finding the positive in any situation, and she’ll fight anyone for an In-N-Out Burger. Denise has also visited every state in the U.S., in case you needed one more reason to hate her.
