Missy Payne, Survivor Finalist 29th season

In our fast paced, highly competitive corporate world, a lot of us spend more time with co-workers than family or friends. And, those people we work with can challenge our patience. Creating a working environment with an effective and efficient team can also be taxing. Introducing, Missy Payne!

CBS TV show Survivor, Season 29 “Blood Vs. Water” finalist and Dallas native, Missy was faced with the daunting task of building alliances and fostering successful team efforts in the midst of extreme emotional and physical stress. Missy’s 39 days on the island enhanced her tools to build trust and respect in all of her relationships, at work and at home. But long before Survivor, Missy was surviving. Through her experiences on her life journey she has identified seven character traits that when unlocked can help you discover new insight into yourself, build a healthy working tribe, and find unique ways to serve your community.
