About the Program:

Is This Who I Am and Is This What I Do?

There will be times in nearly all of our professional lives when we find ourselves at a crossroads.  Too often, we tend to feel that we are the sum of all that we have done and nothing more.  We are who we are and it is what it is. Not so.  This presentation will suggest that we can used such opportunities – those that come about due to a planned or even an unexpected change in job status – to explore what really makes us tick and consider how we can add the most value to our employer while satisfying our most significant professional and personal passions.
