Wednesday, March 15 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Are you in a season of change … seeking a new job, contract, temporary work or a career
change? Whatever change you are experiencing, it might be time for a “tune-up”.

Some may cringe at the word “change”, while others welcome it with open arms. But this is the chance to break out of the mindset and patterns you have been comfortable with and start to prepare for a new and enhanced YOU. This might include an updated look, new behaviors and daily practices, and new relationships that support you on your journey. You’ll be amazed by the positive changes you can experience in as little as 90 days. During this session, you will examine elements of your first impression, mind-set, self-confidence, energy and relationship management practices, and identify a few areas where you need support. Get ready to shake it up and examine these areas to create positive results.
