    Is your work life taking up too much space in your personal life? Are job-related pressures getting to you? In an industry that has high expectations, it’s important to carve out time to decompress and take care of your mental health.

    Join the ISSA Young Professionals on August 25th, for Unwind Your Mind. We’ll enjoy a short program, good company and conversation, followed by happy hour on The Roof at Joy District. Join us for this fun event!

    The program will be presented by ISSA Board Member Zenja Glass, CEO and President of Unlocking Greatness Staffing. 

    Meet the Speaker

    Zenja “Z.” Glass is the owner of Unlocking Greatness Staffing, Inc. She has been in the staffing industry for nearly 32 years.

    She started a podcast about two years ago to motivate others to never give up in life, despite their circumstances. After losing her son in 2021, Z. expanded her reach to inspire people in the business sectors by teaching young professionals and business leaders how to slow down and take care of themselves by sitting in silence, praying, and reevaluating their talents and gifts to live a purpose-driven life.

    Unlocking Greatness Podcast with Zenja Glass now streams on every podcast platform and is now heard on every continent with well over ½ million subscribers across all social media platforms with listeners from all walks of life.

    Zenja Glass has become a living example of a business leader applying godly principles to live a better life and help others learn how to grow from dark places and take better care of YOU.

    Join us for this virtual training session with Speaker and Performance Coach Henna Pryor,  November 10th at 12PM CST.

    For assistance with registration (individual or entire team), email info@issaworks.com

    Cost to attend:  Members FREE, Nonmembers $39

    In this new era, the new psychology for recruiting, sales, and revenue growth has changed and we need to take a new approach to earn new customers, increase referrals, and maximize opportunities for partnership and repeat business. 

    The need for change accelerated quickly during the pandemic, but as ambitious leaders who are hungry to meet our potential, we need to adapt - and fast. Buyers are looking for us to add a different type of value as sellers and most of us are still going about it the wrong ways.

    Join Executive Coach and Performance Expert, Henna Pryor, and learn the concrete strategies for leveraging the NEW psychology of selling going forward - and how to do it right.

    By the end of this session, your audience will be able to:

    ·  Shift away from problem-solving to a more valuable strategy

    ·  Understand how being the "expert with information access" is hurting you instead of helping

    ·  Know how to position offerings from several new angles that increase trust and forward motion

    ·  Learn the new critical keys that buyers need to hear today in order to say yes
