May 24, 2013

Program Locations:

Science, Industry and Business Library (SIBL), Conference Room 018

 

Do you feel you shouldn’t have to sell yourself?  Are you uncomfortable around people who are talking about their accomplishments?  Do you find yourself looking for ways to get out of conversations rather than into them?  Perhaps instead you find yourself coming up with the answer while the person you are listening to goes on and on or maybe you like to take time to consider your answers.    
 
Career coach Win Sheffield discusses ways to approach and prepare for conversations.
 
 Techniques covered will include:
  • Recognizing how to use our strengths to impress your listener in more quiet ways
  • Using story techniques to approach difficult to address successes obliquely
  • Structured ways to approach and prepare for conversations
  • Career management methods that minimize conversation
  Seating is on a first come, first seated basis unless otherwise noted.
