Strategic Conversations with Leaders Series

ReCreate or ReEnergize: Creating a Personal Strategic Plan to Find the Passion in Yourself and Your Career

Instructor: Wendy Beecham, Chair, TEC International & Executive Coach.

It's Monday morning and you're heading off to work. Are you going with a bounce in your step positively anticipating the challenges of the day? Are you feeling that these are wonderful times when money, connections, rewards and living one's dreams and plans have all come together? Or are you feeling like you're going through the motions and you can't remember why you took this job? Is there a lack of challenge and personal development? What's happened to the time you used to spend with your friends and family? There are predictable cycles of change we all go through in our jobs and in our lives. In fact, the only constant in life is change. This session focuses on the Cycle of Renewal, created by Frederic and Pamela Hudson of the Hudson Institute. It describes the phases and shares practical steps about the essential life skills, feelings and goals to accomplish in each of the phases. At the end of the presentation, you will be able to identify which phase of the cycle you are currently residing in and will leave with practical tools and techniques for developing your own personal strategic plan to ReCreate or ReEnergize yourself and your career.
