Several people have shaped who we are today, impacting our character, our beliefs and our personal, professional and leadership development. Who has made the greatest and most lasting impact to you?Â What was it about those moments that transformed you or helped you be the person you are today?Â How have these connections youâ€™ve experienced shaped your career, life, direction, parenting, vision and well being?Â What makes a difference in your life and in the lives of those who matter to you?Â These are the connections that matter and they are a powerful element of every personâ€™s life.
In this breakfast round-table session for senior technical women facilitated by Stacey Sargent of Connect Growth and Development, weâ€™ll explore and create clarity on the connections that matter to you.Â We will offer tools that help you create and make more of these connections in your life and how to do this for others.Â You will learn and explore:
- How to identify the meaningful connections
- Where to best invest time and energy in connections; where should you be?
- How to contribute meaningful connections to others
- What connections can advance you as a woman in technology?
- What connection goals do you need to make progress (in your career, as a leader, in your life)?
Join a conversation with your senior-level peers and expect to leave this session SEEING connection possibilities all around you!
