NAWBO-SB Speaker to Discuss How to Change Your Thinking in Business, Life

The National Association of Women Business Owners-Santa Barbara is hosting a luncheon Jan. 23 featuring bestselling author Byron Katie, who will present her simple yet powerful process of inquiry called The Work.

Katie will discuss her book, The Work for Business: Clearing the Way for Innovation, and its four-question process that will help change thinking and, ultimately, pave the way for innovation, full potential and effectiveness.

Through her system, Katie helps people question limits and open up to new ways of thinking.

This process began developing over 25 years ago when, in 1986, at the bottom of a 10-year spiral into depression, rage and self-loathing, Katie woke up one morning to a state of constant joy that has never left her. She realized that when she believed her stressful thoughts, she suffered, but that when she questioned them, she didn’t suffer, and that this is true for every human being. The Work is ideal for business professionals because the process is said to decrease stress, improve relationships, increase mental clarity, and bring more energy and peace.

Katie has been bringing The Work to millions of people through free public events, weekend workshops, a nine-day School for The Work, and 28-day residential Turnaround House. Her six books include the bestselling Loving What Is, I Need Your Love — Is That True? and A Thousand Names for Joy. Click here for more information.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
