Keys to Living Your Passionate Life
January 10, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am PST
Gayle Johnson, Founder of EVOLVE Life Coaching
“Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.” – Oprah Winfrey, an American talk show host, television producer, actress, author, and philanthropist.
Have you ever asked yourself what you would do if you won the lottery and have all the money in the world to do what you want? More than a few of us have probably fantasized about leaving our jobs immediately, taking that money to pay off all our debt if we have any, jet-setting around the world with our friends and family, and doing whatever else we have always wanted. We get all jazzed up just dreaming of that possibility and then reality hit that we are unlikely to ever win that lottery, causing us to feel trapped in our busy, yet rather lackluster life.
We do not have to live a mundane, stagnant life without passion. Someone once said that “life without passion is a mere act of survival.” We can choose to take measured steps to live a life that is injected with passion, doing things that excites us. We often do not think of passion as a life skill, but it is a key skill that if we learn to utilize properly, can bring vitality and excitement to all our engagements, whether at work, at home or in other situations.
Our speaker, Gayle Johnson, will share with us her insights on how to discover our passions and our values underlying those passions. She will also discuss how we can instill passion and purpose in what we already do that will drive progress and motivation.
Gayle Johnson is the founder of EVOLVE Life Coaching. She helps companies and governmental organizations maximize employee effectiveness through emotional intelligence leadership training and coaching. Gayle is a Seattle native. She graduated from Roosevelt High School, attended the legendary Spelman College in Atlanta, GA, and then transferred to the University of Washington, where she received a B.A. Degree in Political Science.
Gayle says of her experience: “I have enjoyed the role of political strategist, workshop facilitator, and transformational leader for over 20 years. My effective leadership style has been developed through coaching high-level leadership, mid-management, and frontline employees on the importance of emotional intelligence, and how applying it creates high-performing teams, helps retain good talent and ultimately increases revenue. To support my experience as a transformational thought leader, I pursued a Master of Transformational Leadership at Seattle University. This knowledge informs my understanding of the theory behind what it takes to be an impactful leader, team member, employee, and how to manage one’s emotions while working in diverse organizations and managing the new demographic of employees – Millennials. I love people and enjoy seeing them access their happiness and move their lives forward.”
