Love it or Leave it: Moving Your Career Forward
Thursday, September 26, 2019
4:00 PM - 6:15 PM
Please join the Washington Network Group when we meet with Christa Davis for an interactive session on the topic: "Love it or Leave it: Moving Your Career Forward."
About Our Topic:
Our careers are more intertwined with our lives than ever before. As humans, we naturally want a sense of purpose and meaning, and our careers can play an important role in creating this. However, the career advice we were told we ‘should’ follow often isn’t the answer to achieve the happiness and fulfillment we desire. When there is misalignment in our jobs, it can easily trickle into all areas of our lives. As a result, we end up stressed, unfulfilled and disengaged.
So, what can you do to love your job? How do you know when it’s time to leave your role and move on? In this workshop, Christa Davis will teach you how to get ‘unstuck’ in your career, make decisions that bring more meaning and motivation to your work, and share how you can decide if it’s time to ‘love or leave’ your job.
This session will be introduced by Silvia Dumitrescu, WNG Board member and Chair of the WNG Women's Leadership Forum.
