Aug 15 2024  12:00 PM Eastern Time. 

 

This presentation will discuss the big stuff, the little stuff, and the stuff in between that is involved in doing one’s job better, making more money and planning to get that ultimate dream job. These three themes will be woven throughout the talk. The “Big Stuff” topics discussed include developing good relationships, designing a work plan, getting organized, the power of networking, growing your own strategic plan, developing your leadership skills, upgrading your skill set, and working towards your dream job. The “Little Stuff” topics outlined will include kindness, acknowledging others, stop comparing yourself to others, and learn from going through tough times. The “Stuff In Between” topics will examine how to keep your focus on your work and keep track of your accomplishments. The talk will wrap up with a thought-provoking discussion to help you reflect on your “dream job”. Participants will gain useful insights from an experienced administrator on how to excel in their chosen career, plan for career advancement, and enjoy their “career” journey.
