THE TIME IN BETWEEN – CRC Members Only – Registration Required

Wednesday, March 8 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Employment transitions are rarely easy. Leaving behind the comfort of the old and moving towards the uncertainty of the new often makes us uneasy and can cause significant stress. However, this “time in between” can be used productively and lead us to new and even better opportunities. This presentation will offer guidance on how to turn this stressful time from something to just endure into something that is meaningful and profitable. Learn how to navigate this challenging season while remaining hopeful and embracing the benefits from a time of reflection and redefinition. It can become a springboard to an improved you.Pam Bretthauer
