1:00 - 1:30 Registration

1:45 - 2:45 Critical Thinking: How To Make Decisions That Stick
During this interactive session, we explore one of the most sought-after workplace skills - critical thinking. We all know smart people who make decisions that just don't work out. So having a high IQ clearly isn't enough. It takes looking at situations differently and applying new ways of thinking. The good news is that critical thinking is a learned skill. In this low-risk, high energy session we will explore how critical thinking can get derailed and what you can do differently to keep it on track.

2:45 - 3:15 Speed Networking Session


3:15 - 3:30 Break

3:30 - 4:30 From the Ground Up
How to overcome being overlooked and the rewards of perseverance.

4:30 - 5:30 Forget Work Life Balance - Live and Lead with Rhythm
Work-life balance sounds good in theory, but we all know that striking that balance can be a maddening pursuit. At times, it can feel like the circus act of balancing spinning plates on sticks. During this session, Sharon Cook will share tips to help you reframe your perspective and outlook from one of work-life balance to work-life rhythm.
