Bloom Where You’re Planted 

Speaker Ronetta J Francis

“When facing challenges, whether unexpected or planned, whether in your professional or personal life, find comfort in those uncomfortable moments; those are the moments of growth that allow you to Bloom Where You Are Planted.”

You have sacrificed time away from your family and friends to further your education and to advance your professional career.  Now, you have landed your Dream Job – or the job that is one-to-two steps away from your Dream Job – and your experience is not at all what you had expected or hoped.  What now? The promotions have stopped coming or they never came; you feel “stuck.” How do you break through – push past “perfect,” put fear in its place and turn down the volume of your inner critic? How do you grow and flourish in an environment that is not supportive or conducive to that vision? 

Drawing from her experiences a wife, mother, mentor, federal litigator, in-house counsel and corporate executive, Francis will share the dynamic, engaging and actionable leadership principles she developed to empower the phrase, Bloom Where You Are Planted, to inspire and motivate the changes necessary to move from surviving to thriving. All registrants will receive a copy of “Bloom Where You are Planted,” Francis’s newly released book.

At the end of this session, participants will:

  • Identify barriers that affect their goals, including advancement of professional career.
  • Learn how to “bloom” in environments that are not conducive to their professional growth. 
  • Become motivated to make those necessary changes to thrive, and not just survive, in challenging circumstances.
