    Developing a Career Change Mindset

    In this session will we focus on using the power of visualization to create a career vision board that will help you reach your career goals this year and beyond.

    Career discovery is a journey, and like any other personal journey you complete, it pays to try different techniques to create the results you desire. If you are having difficulty identifying your career goals, you might benefit from building a career vision board.

    Creating a vision board is easy and fun.  There is a whole industry available to help you build your vision boards (software, templates, etc.).  Here is our simple five-step guide to building a vision board:

    1. Collect and bring in your images:  Cut out photos and meaningful phrases from magazines.  Look for pictures of people doing activities/occupations you find enjoyable and pictures that represent the type of work environments/people/work outfits/ or companies you’d like to be associated with.
    2. Bring your creative tools: tri-fold board or poster, colored pencils, pens, or markers. You will need scissors, tape and/or glue. 
    3. Draft your positive affirmation to attach to your vision board. 
    4. Bring in your blank career journal. 
    5. We will develop and focus on your top five objectives for your new career or how you plan to enhance your career. We will revisit your objectives in each TTN session. 

    In-Person Location: Strayer University Chesapeake, 676 Independence Parkway- Third floor, Chesapeake, VA 23320

    "Developing Ready Leaders for the Front-line" 

    The presentation provides an overview of the background, development, and implementation of The Apprentice Schools Frontline Foreman Accelerated Skills Training (FAST) program.  Using the program as a backdrop, participants will be exposed to techniques for designing a cost effective leadership development program that utilizes existing traditions and cultural strengths, employs a blended learning approach, and intrinsically cultivates support from middle and upper management.  Connections will also be made to process design for the identification and development of high-potential employees for specific career paths.

    3.    Change management:  influencing organizational shift from current state to desired state

    Learning Objectives: 

    1:  Designing a Vector Program:  Participants will learn about the advantage of identifying organizational strengths that can be utilized as foundation elements for designing programs that respond to development needs and enhance organizational effectiveness.  They will learn how to balance the use of existing program design approaches with the implementation of new methods that encourage innovation and improve alignment between learning objectives and on-the-job applications.

    2:  Applying the Blended Learning Approach:  Using the Frontline FAST developmental process as an example, participants will learn how to apply blended formal and informal learning experiences to program design.  They will learn how to use a community of practice approach that connects individual and socially interactive activities with workplace experiences and networking. 

    3:  Cultivating Natural Support:  Participants will learn how to take advantage of existing organizational structure and relationships to build natural support for the design and implementation of a program.  They will learn how to incorporate unobtrusive elements that promote sponsorship from company leadership and establish formal and informal connections with key individuals responsible for employee development.
