Navigate Your Career Journey to Get You Where You Want to Go

This session provides you with tips, tools, and tales of real-life experiences that relate to developing a career strategy, and navigating the unexpected.

A career strategy is particularly helpful if you need to reroute due to an unexpected detour. You can even learn to anticipate potholes, and shore up your reserves so you’re not devastated if the road crumbles beneath you.

Through this presentation, you will learn what it means to:

  • Own your career.
  • Make your value visible.
  • Avoid isolation and expand your influence.

You own your career; no one will ever care as much as you do. Studying the paths of others before you can help you strategically reach your career goals.

Make Teamwork Work

Capitalize on Your Different Styles as Team Members

You come together as a team with the best of intentions. You may be assigned to a project or volunteer to plan an event, for instance. Before you know it, tensions flare, quietly or in a burst of flame. Most people mean well, and what they don’t know is that we all have our own valid ways of approaching work, and our skills can be very complementary.

In this workshop, you will learn:

  • The strengths you bring to the table.
  • The typical approaches of your teammates.
  • How your approach can be misunderstood.
  • How to appreciate your team member’s strengths.
  • How to fill in any gaps in your team behavior.
