This is exciting new series for our community – Life Bites: a webinar series elevating your professional wellness! Why Life Bites? Challenging times require new approaches in wellness. In this series, we will set aside all the jargon and focus on how to bring forward a consciousness that sustains you – in all the roles you manage – at home and at work. You will learn, laugh and may cry a tear or two along the way!
Life Bites, presented in partnership with The Avery and Brian Experience, is a virtual series designed to deliver relevant and useful tools for personal and professional development for your workplace community. Each 45-minute session is purposefully structured to be engaging and interactive so attendees of the series will have a positive experience. The values of R9HSA Life Bites include the belief that each person must be acknowledged for their lived experiences, we are all leaders in organizations and self-development is the key to personal growth and professional success.
Life Bites, a product of Training West, is designed to engage a diverse staff providing Head Start and Early Head Start services. Individuals will be enrolled in a four-session offering in the Spring/Summer of 2023. All sessions will be held on the Zoom platform. Sessions will be presented live and offered on-demand to registered attendees. Programs are encouraged to register multiple staff and use the series for coaching and staff development efforts.
The sessions will take place virtually utilizing the Zoom platform and an interactive learning management resource.
The Avery and Brian Experience was created in 2018 to help families and organizations focus on developing healthy relationships. What started as a conversation over dinner about helping our local community has led us to speak in front of more than 35,000 people and counting.
Our journey as motivational speakers and workshop facilitators has led us to present keynote addresses at corporate conferences, college faculty retreats, business leadership roundtables, unified school district events, commencement ceremonies, and sorority/ fraternity conventions.

I have been to management workshops, not leadership training. This has totally changed my perspective and encouraged me to propel forward in developing my skills.
I am honored and humbled to be a recipient of the Region 9 Head Start Association’s Legacy Scholarship. The scholarship helped me get one step closer to achieving my goal of becoming a Head Start Director.
I took part in The disproportionate impact of COVID 19, and how to provide “real” support for black/brown children and families and I just want to say this was an amazing webinar. I hope we can look forward to further conversation on this topic.
Thank you so much for making events like this! I really enjoyed and learned so much teaching strategies to implement STEM in the classroom.
The HR Network was an excellent opportunity to network and learn the best practices from other HR professionals within Head Start programs. You will be amazed by the level of talent and experience of the participants.
The Summer Camp training was powerful and inspiring! Each presenter was very engaging, it’s hard to even pick a favorite session!
The Leadership Challenge training was very relevant to my work as a Head Start leader! Great facilitation; stayed with the program yet allowed time for individual and small group reflections.
