Unlocking your potential at Great Bay Community College lunch series
On Wednesday, the management consultant brought his expertise in neurolinguistic programming to Great Bay Community College as part of its professional development series “Lunch with the Pros.”
Yonker focused his presentation on the barriers many people face in reaching their goals, and tips on how to avoid those barriers.
A person’s life will also mostly likely be directed by the kinds of questions they ask themselves, namely negative questions about why things are so difficult or why they cannot get where they want to be.
Each individual is the representation of their own belief system, so individuals need to create more powerful beliefs for themselves, instead of just listening to others, he said.
He pointed out five things those in attendance could do to make change. These included creating environments and surrounding oneself with people that will help propel one forward; finding a mentor; changing thinking; conducting a values inventory; and believing in oneself.
Dr. Mark R. Windt serves on the advisory board for GBCC and suggested Yonker as a possible speaker for the lunch event.
“This is, by definition, a community college, so the broadening of that word is important,” Windt said.
On Feb. 19, Katie White, a pediatric intensive care unit nurse at Wentworth Douglass Hospital in Dover, will be the featured speaker.
