Managing Your Career:
What Your Boss Won’t Tell You

Breakout Session by Dr. James Brown

This seminar covers all the aspects of career management beyond just working hard and is for those who want to achieve career success by advancing to higher levels of responsibility in the organization. Often the mid-career professional that has diligently kept their nose to the grindstone finds all they have to show for ten, fifteen or twenty years of work is a flat nose. Participants are provided with practical guidelines for success that focuses on strategies and tactics that ensure hard work is rewarded. Objectives are dynamically illustrated through stories with real life examples.

After completion of this course the participant will be able to:

  • Establish a career plan within an organization
  • Determine the political power structure in an organization
  • Know the importance of sales skills in any and all professions
  • Understand why management doesn’t usually do what is logical
  • Define the proper attire for their work environment
  • Create an image of a serious professional and understand why their professional image is important
  • Identify different communication styles and why they are critical for effective presentations
  • Recognize the importance of interpersonal relationships in the work environment
  • Choose professional and charitable organizations that benefit their career aspirations
