  • From Surviving to Thriving: Moving Beyond Toxic Work Environments

    Chrissy Macken, Founder and Career Coach, blueprintgreen

    If you wake up every morning dreading going to work, if you've excused yourself from a meeting because you were ready to explode, if you've ever cried at work, if it feels like none of your work matters, and all your contributions are dismissed, if your job feels totally unpredictable and you have no control over your time or tasks, if the burdens of your job are all you ever think about, if you're so overwhelmed it's paralyzing, then you’re probably in a toxic work environment. MORE >

    Being in a toxic work environment means that your workplace is sick; despite your best efforts, it’s very hard for you to achieve a sense of wellbeing and thrive in this workplace. And work stress is seeping into all other aspects of your life, and it’s likely bringing you down. I’d bet that you are missing out on having well-deserved compensation and the chance to shine as the career rock star that you are. And, you're probably unable to find a sense of meaning, purpose, and enjoyment in the work you do everyday.

    Your toxic work environment is as bad as you think it is, and you deserve better.

    I've been there. I know what it's like for every day on the job to somehow feel worse than the last. I know what it's like to be so entirely STUCK. And, in this presentation, I’ll teach you the strategies for how to get unstuck, rediscover your strengths, and reclaim your career potential.

  • Do You Have the Right People in the Right Seats?

    Dawn Shuler, CEO and Founder, The Shuler Group, LLC

    Many organizations hire solely based on the candidate's skills and experience. However, the employee will be more productive and be a better fit for the company culture if there's a match between the person's career/position and his or her personality. MORE >

    According to Gallup, 77% of employees who know what their company stands for and what makes it different from competitors strongly agree that they plan to be with the company for at least one year. From a study conducted by IBM, 80% of employees felt more engaged when their work was consistent with the core values and mission of their organization.

    The best employees are those that are an ideal fit with the organization, and that means in terms of the company, the culture, other employees, and values.

    We believe that the ideal candidate and employee is one for whom there is an alignment with all the above, as well as the position/job description itself.

    How do you know if there's a fit between the company and the hiring candidate or even existing team members or employees?

    In this workshop, participants will:

    - Learn how to uncover the company's Deeper Why
    - Discover a method for determining a candidate's and employee's value system
    - Explore a simple tool to evaluate whether you truly have the right people in the right seats
