Career Seminar: How to Get Out of Your Own Way



  • Sponsored by The Career Company



    Kimberly Wiefling, Founder and Principal of Wiefling Consulting


    Presentation Overview

    Many problems are of our own making. Self-limiting beliefs prevent many people from even attempting to reach their goals, let alone act on them. Discover 'optimism as a strategy!' This presentation is based on well documented concepts of behavioral modification called acting as if.

    If you are ready to move beyond anger, blame, and grief, this presentation is for you. Open to the possibility of accepting, even embracing, changes not of our own choosing as opportunities that would not other wise have been available. Re-interpret the story of your career transition in ways that will energize you, inspire others, and attract your next opportunity.

    You'll leave this presentation with practical tools you can start using today to: re-interpret circumstances in ways that will energize you and inspire others; stop sabotaging yourself with negativity; and communicate more effectively and get unstuck.
