Event Overview:

TIPS TO PREPARE FOR A CAREER-GROWTH CONVERSATION
Including five things I wish I knew before I became the boss and investing in your emotional energy!

A conversation with WXN Ambassadors Robin Kovitz & Diane McCurdy
Session 3


 

“Where do you see yourself in five years?” It’s not just a question for job interviews and performance reviews – it’s a hugely important part of your next career move. But because it can be difficult to answer (after all, none of us have a crystal ball), we often don’t give it the attention it deserves. That’s about to change with our next Monday Mojo lineup.

For the month of October, WXN Top 100 winners Robin Kovitz and Diane McCurdy will kick off your career growth conversation. Join us for meaningful discussions and practical tips about talking honestly with your leader about your career goals, what “becoming the boss” really means and how to make sure you have the mental energy you need to make your next step a reality.

Members FREE/Non-Members $5 (just the cost of a cup of coffee)
