Mental BootCamp for Moms Considering Returning to Work
If you have spent any time out of the paid workforce, some things may feel out of shape. Sure, your resume and professional networks need work, but what about your head? This program is for “on-rampers” to develop the confidence and self-awareness muscles so critical for career design and re-launch. Participants will gain an understanding of their personal core values, learn to identify and manage self-limiting thoughts, discover strategies for making creative choices, and get ready to take action.
Discover & Use Your Strengths
Research over the past 10 years has shown that awareness of your own strengths leads to greater self-confidence, life achievement and mental wellness. Prior to class, participants will take Gallup’s StrengthsFinder 2.0, a scientifically-grounded online assessment which has been taken by over 2 million people in 34 languages. In class, participants will learn more about strengths-theory, begin to understand their individual profile and how to apply this knowledge in their life. This is invaluable information to have throughout life, including times when you are leading others, considering career options, updating your resume or even running a harmonious household.
Developing a Concise & Inspiring Action Plan
Based on One Page Business Plan® for Women in Business by Jim Horan & Tamara Monosoff. Whether you are starting a business, re-launching a career or taking your existing responsibilities to the next level, a written business plan will serve as a blueprint to capture what you are building, how you will do it and how the results will be measured along the way. And as life inevitably gets busy, your plan will be the GPS that pulls you back to the intentions you set and the specific results you are working towards. Keep in mind that plans can be used for any project or goal. In this program, you will see how important a concise plan is, and address any fears or self-limiting beliefs that have stopped you from planning and staying in momentum. You’ll create a 5 category plan covering the vision, mission, strategies, measureable objectives and high-payoff action items necessary to keep you moving along. You will get concrete guidance and support to write, revise and implement your plan, and will leave with increased clarity and motivation.
How Do We Balance it All? Making Conscious Choices in All Areas of Our Lives
“Balance” is a high priority for many, yet our days and months often get so busy that we find our lives running us rather than the other way around. A critical tool for wellbeing and life satisfaction is the ability to rebalance when needed – to consciously shift attention to the key life areas that require it at that time. In this interactive and informal workshop, participants will honestly appraise their satisfaction levels in eight key areas of life; what is working well, and where they would like to make a difference. They will then begin to clarify what their own definition of satisfaction looks like and what kind of intentional action will make a positive impact for them.
