Have you ever noticed that successful people seem to have a different mindset? For the past six
years, Doug Hanson has been committed to the development of people on both an individual and
team level. Doug believes without hesitation that the winner’s mindset is the foundation for all
measurable success in life.
There is a common element for all who have the winner’s mindset. It is the belief that there is
something special about them. A believe that we have been entrusted with certain “Gifts” that
can make a difference in the world.
People who take the time to recognize and understand their gifts are clear on their
direction and purpose in life. What are your gifts? Doug will teach you strategies for finding
your own unique gifts as well as recognize some that we all have in common.
