Engineer Your Career Success

#career #success #workplace #opportunities

Do these feelings at work get in the way of your experience of your career?

  • “I am an over-achiever who never rests to enjoy the successes because I feel like I constantly need to prove myself.”
  • “Nothing I ever do is good enough, no matter how much effort and time (even family time) I pour into my effort. Everything I do must be perfect even better than perfect.”
  • “I have an inner critic constantly running through my head, criticizing me and everything I do.”
  • “I better not speak up in meetings. If it was a good idea, someone else would have had it already.”
  • “I know my unhealthy habits (smoking, drinking, overspending, procrastinating, etc.) are bad for me, but I need the relief after a tough day.”

If these constant thoughts are wearing you out and affecting your ability to feel confident, take heart in knowing that in any room – conference room, company kitchen, all-hands meeting – at least 2 out of every 3 people are tormented by the same Inner Critic. Based on Susan’s personal and professional experiences, as well as the latest research in positive psychology and neuroplasticity, she will show you how to rise above whatever past you have had and reclaim your right to experience your career, even the challenging interactions you might have at work, in a way that will completely change how you experience the workplace.

Participants will:

  1. How to use the science of neuroplasticity and the principles of positive psychology to begin creating the career experience you deserve
  2. Discover a fresh understanding of how the workplace can actually give you opportunities to replace limiting beliefs with positive, supportive beliefs, insights, skills, and experiences that empower you to build a successful career – and a healthy life
  1. Gain insight into how you may be unconsciously showing up at work in ways that are negatively affecting your career experience and success
