Friday, November 9 – 10:15 a.m. Your career success is tied to the most important relationship you have at work – to your boss! You can improve your workplace skills, organizational awareness, and professionalism by adopting ‘managing up’ techniques – and you can do it without pandering or kissing up!
Career Connections at CAL
November 10, 2007
From Surviving to Thriving: Using Change to Energize Your Career. Change can be your strongest ally when it comes to building a resilient—and rewarding— career. Yet most of us struggle to accept change, often overwhelmed by a sense of disorientation, loss of control, and sometimes fear. Are there ways we could help ourselves move beyond the resistance factor and instead embrace the opportunities change often offers? Absolutely! This presentation will walk you through the attitudes and actions that will enable you to not just survive the changes going on in the profession, but thrive on them.
