Envisioning Your Future
This webinar explores ways to create a vision for your future, test ideas, identify impediments to growth, and develop adaptability. This foundational topic sets the stage for many other webinars in this series, including Goal Setting and Time Management.
Once we have a vision for our future, how do we set achievable goals to get there? Whether personal or professional goals, individual or with a team, this webinar offers tools and tricks to move forward and stay nimble.
There's a finite amount of time. How can we make the most of it? How can we focus not only on managing time but energy, timing, and type of work? Looking holistically at our lives, this session focuses on techniques to make the most of the 24 hours we have each day.
Developing a Reflective Practice
Our world moves fast. Sometimes it feels like it's faster every day. How did we end up in our current place? Where are we going? What have we learned? Developing a reflective practice can help us engage with our world more intentionally and provide perspective about our own growth and future growth areas.
Strategically Saying “Yes”
Saying "yes" to new opportunities can open a variety of doors and windows, but what happens when you've said "yes" one too many times? Keep yourself from getting overwhelmed and burnt out by learning how to strategically say "yes" to those opportunities that will help you develop, without feeling obligated to say "yes" to everything and everyone.
Should I memorize my presentation or read off of note cards? How big should the font on my PowerPoint be? How do I make my presentation flow better? Wanting to be a proficient public presenter means thinking about all aspects of your presentation. Join us to learn tips and tools for developing and giving presentations.
Developing your Personal Brand
Branding isn't just for organizations. Every day through our in-person and online engagements we are developing our brand and story. Developing a strong personal brand can help you to land new jobs, build your current business, and seek out new opportunities. So, what is your brand saying about you?
How do you engage when you first meet a new person? How do you maintain or end a professional relationship? How do you follow-up with a new professional contact? Join us to learn more about how to use networking to build and cultivate strong professional relationships.

Creatively Funding your Education
What are the funding options for graduate school? What about other benefits and opportunities? How does one ask for support? We discuss an overview of options and strategies for asking for funding and other non-financial benefits while in graduate school.

Designing a Better Job Search
Most jobs are filled before they are ever posted. Needless to say, the modern job search is complex and nuanced. Learn strategies to create an effective job search and how to stay organized in the process.
Refresh your Resume
What would you say if someone asked you for a copy of your resume today? Most of us would have a moment of panic realizing the last time we updated our resume was when we applied for our current position. In this webinar we explore ways to think about resumes differently, strategically use different versions of your resume, and stay nimble for those moments when opportunity knocks.
