A series of short sessions dedicated solely to adapting tasks for remote working. Check back as additional webinars and sessions are scheduled.

Building Your Resilience Muscles


Instructor: Ronda Mitchell and Irma Alvarez

Do you feel like you are just managing to get through these challenging times? It may be your resilience muscles are weak. In this webinar we’ll share with you a roadmap with concepts to build your resilience, regain your balance and move forward with optimism and energy for sustaining and, even, increasing work performance.

Building Your Own Long-Term Success Story


Instructor: Kara Wight and Brandon Telg

We live in a time where people are achieving early success at a rapid pace and their stories are amplified. In a short amount of time these stories have gone from the remarkable exception, to the new expectation of success. While reaching a certain level of success at a young age can set you up for long-term success, there are some inherent dangers that come with taking on too much too soon. In this webinar, we will debunk this myth that you must have your dream job and be building your empire by the time you’re in your 30’s. Then we’ll take a look at some examples of success that were a slower burn, built up over time. Finally, we will dig into some tools to help you design your own long-term success story.
