Feeling "dead in the water" because your networking events have been cancelled due to COVID-19?

Have a list of worries/concerns/fears?

  • When will crisis be over?
  • How do I keep my job search moving ahead, without just applying for jobs aimlessly?
  • When will I find a job?
  • How do I keep my family safe - physically and financially?

If any of these voices are rumbling around in your head, this is the group for you! 

We will find connection through shared challenges, joys, wisdom, strategies - and lose all of the negative self-talk that goes on when we are isolated from one another. We'll also talk about stress management techniques and ways to thrive. And, with the use of the Zoom platform, you will be able to connect & network with others!

If you have a specific topic you would like to discuss, please email me ahead of the meeting.

Daring Greatly in Your Job Search

Coming Summer 2020!

Any job transition creates vulnerability, disconnection and isolation - from our regular routines, co-workers, family and friends. Being unemployed is a huge shame trigger: our hearts can tell us we're not worth enough even though our heads may know that's not true. 

This group is about what it takes to continue to show up in the Job Search Arena courageously (which requires vulnerability) to network successfully to the next job. Walk away with tools that equip you to show up courageously for this job search - AND a lifetime!Brené Brown's Daring Way™ is the curriculum and Diane Kinsella, Certified Daring Way Facilitator, leads. Diane is one of 1700 certified facilitators world-wide. Pre-registration required.

  1. We will start with the StrengthsFinder 2.0 assessment to understand how you uniquely contribute and define what a "right fit" looks likefor you.
  2. You will create some powerful statements about how you contribute for your marketing campaign.
  3. Next up is managing your digital handshake so that your LinkedIn profile creates a powerful first impression for people and places that would be a good fit for you.
  4. Finally, you will "re-launch" your search with a sharper focus on jobs that are in alignment with who you are, what you uniquely deliver, and a culture that matches.
