Counselor Connect

What motivates you to do your best work?


Since it is only October, winter break is close but just not close enough by far. We have to find a way to keep up our enthusiasm and be positive mentors both at work and at home. This task can be extremely draining. As professionals, what will or has helped motivate you to continue to do your best work each day?

Maya and Noemi

What keeps us motivated to do our best work?

  • It is sometimes the simple things but ultimately it is seeing the fruits of our labor at the end of each year!
