CE Credits available

$350 Tuition

Program Description

The Lightyear self-leadership method of rapid transformation is based in the belief that we need to understand and claim our personal power in this world. It is our work to discover who we are, what we came here to do, and then do our very best to remain true to ourselves and the personal legacy we wish to create.

Through the Lightyear method, you will gain the tools to design your own unique legacy, support your legacy through your vision and goals, choose how you respond to situations in your life, and recognize the power and responsibility of your words.

In this empowering workshop, you will have experiences of one-on-one sharing, group sharing, journaling, physical movement, and visioning. Come learn:

  • The Lightyear self-leadership method of rapid transformation
  • To create a compelling vision for your life with the goals and tools to make it all happen
  • A highly empowering approach to life and leadership based on a future of possibility as opposed to restrictions from the past.

Because our choices impact everything around us, part of our personal responsibility in creating our legacy is to examine the internal voice inside our heads, make sure we are listening to accurate information, and actively choosing to live above the line.

This work of self-discovery, visioning, goal setting, and movement is funny, playful, and suitable for individuals, families, couples, and friends.

Faculty Bio

Susanne Conrad

Susanne Conrad is the founder of Lightyear Leadership; a company that creates and implements dynamic, innovative communication programs for powerful leaders and progressive companies. She has worked as a leadership and communication advisor for more than 30 years, helping people improve their interpersonal and business skills — and create happier, more intentional lives in the process.

Susanne’s early career focused on environmental analysis and communications — she served six years in governmental consulting roles in Washington D.C. and has provided strategic consulting for companies including Sun Microsystems, the Hilton Corporation, Hewlett Packard, lululemon athletica, and earls kitchen + bar.

Throughout her career, Susanne recognized that the solution to most of the world’s major issues could be resolved through better communication — communication between regulatory agencies, governments, community members, and employees. This understanding led Susanne to found her own consulting firm, The Conrad Group, an organization dedicated to helping solve big problems by improving communication.

Susanne is also a certified NIA black belt instructor and was the founder of NIA Santa Monica. (NIA is a fitness technique that combines elements of yoga, martial arts, and dance.) She is committed to tithing, and regularly leads courses and workshops to support the efforts of organizations like imagine1day and the Africa Yoga Project.
