Excellence Series: Eight Ground Rules for Job Success in the Face of Change

Date: February 6, 2014
Time: 1:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Location: Room 1008A, L. William Seidman Center

Workshop presented by Deborah Phillips, HR Consultant

Work.  It’s such an important part of our lives.  And not just because of the money.  Work gives life meaning and purpose.  It contributes to our sense of worth…our self-concept…even our mental and physical health.  Work helps keep us centered – grounded – and that’s so valuable during these times of chaotic change.  But here’s the paradox:  The only way our work can carry this kind of positive, steadying influence on our day-to-day lives is for us to keep changing our approach to the job.  As the world evolves, so must we.  Learn how to make visible contributions beyond the boundaries of your immediate assignments.  Here’s just a few of the ground rules you’ll discuss:

  • Help create value; add more value than you cost
  • Explore and innovate; attack the future rather than protect the past
  • Balance yourself; start less…finish more.  Set limits and do something you can enjoy every day.
