Communication and leadership expert, Renée Giarrusso believes that by adopting a gift mindset, we can grow as leaders, live a life with purpose and leave a valuable legacy.

Renée has led teams and worked with leaders for more than 22 years. She’s a connector, a collaborator and high energetic and passionate about whatever she does.
Having embraced the Gift Mindset for many years, she found that as she shared the concept with others, they discovered that adopting this powerful mindset helped them to embrace challenges and successes, both in and out of the workplace.
“Sharing the lessons we learn, these gifts not only empowers us, but can be someone else’s survival guide and can create a culture of sharing and openness.”
Most of us experience challenges, crises, sadness and triumphs and success at some point over the years. Life throws us curveballs. Some are made of glass and hard to catch, some bounce off us and others seem to fall straight into our hands. These experiences are ‘gifts’. How we catch (or drop) these gifts depend on our mindset, perspective, beliefs, experiences, values and many other things.
Our biggest lessons come through embracing our challenges and successes. An award-winning guide to embracing the life-changing gift mindset, Renée explores how to adopt the attitude, and deepen and develop the 12 Gifts that, if embraced, will bring you greater personal wellbeing and professional success.
