What’s the secret to pushing through—and overcoming—burn-out in troubled times? According to Taylor Garrett, a leadership coach for rising changemakers and the founder of Taylored Coaching, it all comes down to momentum powered by intentionality—taking the “unknowns” in your life and transforming them into possibilities for new growth.
Garrett’s new online program, “21 Days to Momentum,” is designed to help you “go from expanding your problems to intentionally expanding your growth.” The free series runs from July 18 through August 7 and features 21 experts, including Spud Marshall, the Sullivan Foundation’s director of student engagement and leader of the foundation’s twice-yearly Ignite Retreats for college changemakers.
Garrett said the program is aimed at “change agents who want to shift from living their problems to expanding their momentum towards their desires to grow in the change.” She added, “Right now, I believe it’s really important that people get to have more access to the tools and wisdom that energize up their vision rather than burn them out and depress them.”
The program will address a burning question that many young change leaders are currently wrestling with, Garrett notes: “How do we transform our deepest wounds/unconscious programming into our biggest assets so we can lifestyle ourselves into a momentum towards our vision?”
In her career as a leadership coach, Garrett has worked with universities like Leiden University in the Netherlands as well as the UN Refugee Agency and TRY Global.
“My own expertise is conflict transformation,” Garrett said, “and I keep seeing us change agents fall victim to overwhelming vicious cycles of self-exploitation, all for the sake of saving the world—I was one of them. Except the world doesn’t want to be saved, it wants to be transformed. That’s what ‘Momentum’ expands a space for: transformation.”
A high-power roster of speakers will guide program participants along in this journey of transformation. They include:
