    Do you know the top 2 qualities of job candidates that managers consider in hiring decisions? It's not technical skills, but 1) positive attitude, and 2) communication skills. Increase your chances of landing the job you want by reframing your career transition and communicating more effectively.

    Discover 'optimism as a strategy'! This light-hearted workshop 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 workshop 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 workshop with practical tools you can start using TODAY to:

    • re-interpret your career transitions in ways that will energize you and inspire others
    • stop sabotaging your job search with negativity
    • communicate more effectively
    • get unstuck
    • feel better
