The Empowered Career Development Professional: Claiming your Craft

Join us at 3:00 pm on Thursday, October 24 at the Bad Weather Brewing Company, 414 7th St aw

Presented by Cindy Edwards and Victor Massaglia 


Do you ever feel off-balance, pulled in multiple directions, or unsure of what path to take? As Career Development professionals, we often need opportunities to reflect and recharge so that we can be better and do better for the people we serve.  Whether you are new to the profession or a veteran in the field, come and examine your identity and integrity and claim who you are in your work.


This workshop, led by Cindy Edwards and Vic Massaglia, will help you to:


  • Identify and connect with your inner landscape, your identity. Reflect on components of self that provide the foundation of your work.
  • Reflect and explore your outer landscape, your integrity.  Take pause and look at how you present your values, attend to your style, and ensure authenticity of self while working with others.
  • Develop or renew your career development philosophy statement. Build a plan for how you’d like to be in your work.
