Each topic and each day stands on its own. If you are not sure about making a multi-day commitment, sign up for just a single day. We think you will come back for more!
Critical Thinking for Financial Professionals
What were they thinking? Why do business leaders sometimes make horrible decisions that severely damage themselves and their organizations? It is tempting to assume that a poor choice must be due to a leader’s incompetence, inexperience, bad character, or low intelligence – but such easily attributed factors generally aren’t the true cause when leaders blunder. In such situations, many turn to finance and accounting professionals for evaluation, answers, remedies, and solutions for improved future decision-making.
Effective Networking: Take Control of Your Career
It is not who you know, but who knows you. You land jobs, win clients, make sales and get promotions based on your visibility within your company, industry and business community. According to several studies, 70-75% of all new jobs are found through networking. Despite knowing that we should network, the prospect of talking to other people in a room full of total strangers or making new phone contacts may terrify us.
The unknowns scare us most of all. This session will help you find the courage to network by preparing you for that phone contact or networking event. We will talk about what to say, how to say it and most importantly, why you will do your most effective networking when you listen a lot more than you talk. The skills from this session can put you on the path to networking like an expert.
