Forty-Five Minute Presentations
Career Purpose: Why Your Approach to Work Isn’t Working
Established engineering professionals anticipate a fulfilling career and a rewarding future. Much to your dismay, sometimes career outcomes disappoint, and work satisfaction seems more like a pipe dream. Worse, your desperate attempts to solve this dilemma fall short. Learn the reasons behind career unfulfillment, what your career purpose looks like, and how to adjust your approach accordingly.
Career Attachment: Blending Self & Work Identity
You might believe overworking proves your worthiness to your employer, especially during the pandemic. As you become attached to your employment, it becomes more difficult to draw personal boundaries, despite knowing it is the right thing. You will learn the unintended consequences of career attachment and what it takes to set healthy boundaries.
Career Path: What is My Right Career Path?
Too many people waste precious time and remain stuck in a futile attempt to determine the ‘right’ career path. It’s no wonder they cannot find an answer to this close-minded question; it’s not the right question to be asking! It assumes there is one right and many wrong answers. This presentation will open the mind to newfound possibilities as it offers flexible questions to ignite one’s career.
Career Stagnation and Indecision
All of us are prone to the “what am I doing with my life” syndrome. Perhaps you are distressed by too many enticing options. If chronic indecision plagues you, the result includes wasted time and negative career momentum. Strengthen your decision-making abilities and confidently create forward movement in your career.
Self-Confidence and People-Pleasing
Do you obey authority and please others too much? At the heart of people-pleasing lies the question, “what will they think of me?” This self-confidence drill will expose how your confidence is lacking and why. You will explore the meaning of self-confidence, why it’s critical to your wellbeing, and how you can work towards building more.
Work Relationships: When Others Disappoint
Let’s face it, bad bosses are real and unremarkable colleagues exist. At some point, you may have to work for or work with people who are not the most reliable. There is a saying that “people don’t leave jobs, they leave bosses.” Find out how to address poor leadership, indolent colleagues, or toxic work environments. Learn whether it is worth leaving the situation to seek a better outcome elsewhere.
