Webinar: Mid-Life Career Rescue

Wednesday, April 12, 2017 -

7:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Take advantage of this free webinar offered to you by the University of Northern Iowa Alumni Association.

Cassandra Gaisford will focus on career management.

What makes you happy? What’s your passion? Perhaps, like other people, you don’t know. So many people never think about what gives them joy, meaning and purpose before embarking on their careers. Others’ struggle to work out how to follow their passion and still pay the bills.
 
With over 25 years experience as a career coach, counsellor and holisitc psychologist Cassandra Gaisford has seen the mental, emotional, spiritual and physical toll being in the wrong job can exact.
 
The opposite is also true,—when you do what you love work doesn’t feel like work at all.
 
Join Cassandra to learn how to:
 
    • Find your passion and purpose
    • Value and utilise your natural knacks and talents
    • Clarify your best-fit career
    • Make a living in a way that reflects who you are and what’s precious to you
 
Whether you’re just starting out, or you’re a mid-lifer partway through your career, this presentation will help you start living a life you love—before it’s too late.
 
Passion, happiness, joy, fulfilment, love—call it what you will—Cassandra has a proven-track record of success helping people stress less and succeed more.

"The Story of 'Shelley v. Kraemer'" documentary film premiere

"The Story of 'Shelley v. Kraemer'" documentary film premiere

Wednesday, April 12, 2017 - 7:00 pm

The Shelley v. Kraemer U.S. Supreme Court decision, perhaps more than any other ruling in modern times, literally and figuratively changed the face of our nation. This 1948 case ended the practice of "restrictive real estate covenants" that dictated where people could, and could not, live based on issues of race, color, creed and national origin. The documentary will explain and describe the events that led up to this milestone ruling and the actions of the individuals who banded together to help bring it about. Jeffrey Copeland, languages and literatures, will give a brief talk about how this historic ruling changed the country. There will also be film clips of some of those involved in the case and their relatives speaking about their experiences.

Webinar: Six Essential Soft Skills of Indispensable Professionals

Webinar: Six Essential Soft Skills of Indispensable Professionals

Wednesday, April 19, 2017 -

7:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Take advantage of this free webinar offered to you by the University of Northern Iowa Alumni Association.

This week, Anna Tjumina will focus on personal skills.

    • Do you feel unvalued as a professional?
    • Do you feel stuck in a job that does not give you anything back in return but the (most likely unsatisfied) paycheck?
    • Do you feel overwhelmed while cruising the job market, desperately applying for everything that resembles an opportunity but keep getting endless rejections?
Chances are, you are not using your SOFT SKILLS to get you the results you want!

Together with many business and personal development gurus out there, I firmly believe that your personal and professional power lies in your mindset and your soft skills.

 
It’s often overlooked, but the importance and impact of mindsetting is universal. It's not connected to any company, country or continent. It's the very reason why valued professionals are exceptional at what they do! A skillful professional is more than a set of learnable hard skills. It’s the person behind the title that is making all the difference. A lot is expected from us nowadays; fast paced environments, tendencies towards managerial duties, complex team dynamics and level up executive thinking process. Every job is a universe of possibilities! Undeniably, our hard skillset is important to take on the excellence challenge, but it’s who you are inside that delivers on external expectations and fulfills the role to the fullest. It’s time to pay attention to the core values that determine how valuable we are on the job market and make them stronger, bigger and better - from within! Every professional has these skills by design. We just don’t use them consciously and don’t pay attention to the levels of their maturity. We expect them to grow with time, gain the experience as we go. Why leave all of that to chance?! Taking control over your soft skills is the ultimate purpose for this webinar!
 
What we will cover in this webinar:
 
First of all, we will eXplore your mindset and the inner core of your soft skillset in order to create an authentic base for your Personally Awesome Professional Profile. You need this profile! I guarantee you will benefit and monetize on it if it is created carefully and skillfully, no matter your area of focus and expertise. I will share with you some crucial basic mechanics of your mind and personality habits, so you will skillfully use them to pursue your ambitions. Mindset is the multiplier of your hard skills.
 
In the second part, I will reveal the eXperience reasons why the six W.A.N.T.E.D. soft skills are important. You need to excel in all of them if you want to become an Indispensable Professional. Every W.A.N.T.E.D. skill is focused on targeting specific properties, qualities, strengths and unused powers of your identity. Core skill Willing is of crucial importance for 'Positioning' yourself as an expert professional Being Available means being true to your 'Personal Integrity' while being well prepared, adaptive and responsive to challenging circumstances Application of being Nice is the core ingredient of 'Relationship Intelligence' and represents the need to master it with all its complexity and variety. Being Tenacious means you can operate in 'High Performance' mode with indomitable focus and energy. Effectiveness is your ability to 'Balance' elements around you and make them work in your favor so you can deliver on required results. Audacious Dedication has the power to transform and generate 'Change Manifestation', compelling objectives to take on shapes that you aim for.

These W.A.N.T.E.D. skills will enable you to match the ever-changing demands and ever-growing expectation

In the end, we will start the eXpress process of defining your superpower skills which you could translate and market while in pursue of your dream job or position. I will give you a blueprint for a Personally Awesome Branding Profile which will be your jumping board of your personal marketing. Whether you are writing a cover letter, measuring up to job descriptions, preparing interviews or conducting yearly performance reviews – this is your basecamp of your professional excellence.

BONUS giveaway: As a bonus and a celebration of yourself becoming the Indispensable Professional, I will provide you with quick tips and tricks on writing a KILLER cover letter so you will not be overlooked again.

 
Every W.A.N.T.E.D. skill deserves a spotlight attention. Let’s eXplore their fundamental meaning, eXpress the impact on your abilities, so we can eXperience the full potential of their nature.

Being a valued member of nowadays workforce is best done in a job you love to do. By cultivating your mindset with these W.A.N.T.E.D. qualities will make it exciting and extremely fulfilling to be in your role no matter current circumstances. To be proud, content and confident about yourself and your abilities is a true professional blessing.
