June 10: Da Vinci's Cover Letter

Did you know that Leonardo Da Vinci actually wrote a cover letter once in an attempt to get a new job?  Well, he did, and we will go through it, finding the lessons we can individually take from it to make sure our own cover letters are unique masterpieces.  Let's decode the mysteries behind writing a cover letter from the master himself.

Time: 12 - 1pm EST; Cost: $30; Registration now available!

June 11:  Creative Collaboration

This workshop is perfect either as a refresher and recharger for those of us who need to just amp up our collaboration skills or an intro for those who want to step-up their collaboration skills.  We will spend our time playfully working together online in interactive activities meant to activate and amplify our collaboration skills and help us be more creative in how we work together going forward!

Time: 12 - 1pm EST; Cost: $50; Registration now available!


June 12: MBTI for Leaders

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is not just a tool used to help us understand ourselves and others; it has slipped into common parlance about personalities and preferences.  People mention their “type” in conversation often, but what do you really know about your preferred type, and what it says about you and your leadership style.  Do you know how to tap into that to be a stronger leader?  Prior to this program, you will be provided a link to take the MBTI, and from that we will gather not only your individual profile, which you will be provided with, but a group profile for the session to help our group discussion. Prepare to leave with a better understanding of yourself as a leader!  Attendees will also receive a 10-page MBTI analysis of their individual type in the workplace.

Time: 12 - 1pm EST; Cost: $55; Registration now available!


June 15: Interviewing Skills Workshop

Going into an interview can be a deeply stressful experience, but it doesn't need to be! We will spend time in this workshop going through how to best prepare for an interview, either in person or virtually, the types of questions you may face and how to tackle them, and how to manage your interview stress to be able to put your best self forward!  

Time: 12 - 1pm EST; Cost: $40; Registration now available!


June 16:  Mid-Career Changes

As a career coach, one of the biggest questions I face from clients is: "How do I make a change mid-career?"  We will discuss the different kind of career changes you may find yourself facing mid-career, including jumping to a brand new career track, how to maximize your current career to help you step up and out, and how to activate your personal network.  Be prepared to leave with a personal career-development to-do list.

Time: 12 - 1pm EST; Cost: $40; Registration now available!

June 18: Customer Service Skills Recharge

Most jobs nowadays have at least an aspect of customer service involved, and we can all regularly use a recharge to our customer service skills, especially with all the changes we've seen in the world lately.  This workshop is interactive and engaging, and it will be an opportunity to tap into our best customer service selves.

Time: 12 - 1pm EST; Cost: $50; Registration now available!

June 23: Finding Joy

Based on a presentation to the 2014 Duke University Research Administration Symposium, this program focuses on both engaging in and introducing participants to simple stress relief techniques they can tap into during the work day or any time. Highly interactive, this is one that will make participants laugh together now and later and creates bonding experiences, along with useful skills.

Time: 12 - 1pm EST; Cost: $50; Registration now available!

June 30: Making Public Speaking Fun

Public speaking fear is so common that it has become a regular joke, but speaking in front of groups of any size doesn't need to be something to be scared of or something that holds us back! Through a combination of tips, tricks, and interactive activities, we will help reduce fear and increase fun!
