Thursday, November 30, 2017
12-1PM PT (3-4PM ET)  |  FREE for WITI Members ($50 Nonmembers)

Presenter: Renessa Boley Layne

No matter how much money we earn or how "successful" we may look to others, we all get to a point where we feel bored, burned out or unfulfilled in our work. You may want more passion, challenge, freedom, meaning or money in your work right now, yet have no idea where to start, what "perfect work" looks like for you, or how to overcome your fear of the risk to get it.

In this webinar, you'll be equipped with a simple process to redesign your ideal career or business and create a winning strategy to get highly paid doing work you love. If you're itching to change careers, start a business or bring your "big idea" to life, this webinar is for you. You will learn:

- The 4 specific questions that instantly shift you from "no idea" to "crystal clear" on the ideal role that will bring you the most fulfillment and highest income in a new career or business.
- How to strategically transition to meaningful work that excites you without going broke or forfeiting a dime of your current income.
- The top 2 mistakes preventing you from getting highly paid to do work you love right now.
- Why your past successes (NOT your fears or failures) are your biggest roadblock to doing work you love.

She works with 6-figure professional women who feel bored, burned out or unfulfilled in their current career.

Networking for Introverts: Bust the Myths, Avoid the Awkwardness, and Weave Valuable Connections

Tuesday, December 12, 2017
12-1PM PT (3-4PM ET)  |  FREE for WITI Members ($50 Nonmembers)

Presenter: Maya Townsend

Some of us will never enjoy walking into a room of strangers and making connections. Does that mean we're doomed professionally? Not at all!

In this webinar, we learn about the science behind networking and how that science can help engineers, technologists, and introverts make connections successfully and strategically. We draw on insights from researchers and practitioners in the social sciences and business to learn about the networking practices of high performers. We dispel the myth that people who want strong networks should never eat alone and, instead, we learn about the simple actions that significantly contribute to the health of your network.

Participants Take Away:

- Insight into some of the science behind networking

- Understanding of several notorious network traps and how to escape them

- A roster of networking practices well suited for introverts

- A first pass analysis of individual network strengths and gaps

Maya Townsend went from hiding in the corner at networking events to leading a company (Partnering Resources) that helps individuals, teams, and organizations thrive in our networked world. Using the science underlying human relationships and networks, she uncovers sound, practical methods for making soft skills generate hard results.

Maya's free Networking for Introverts ebook helps introverts weave connections, find opportunities, and create the network they need without feeling like a fraud. Co-editor of The Handbook for Strategic HR, Maya will happily tell you why you should throw out your performance reviews and why most HR departments need a total makeover. She serves on the Editorial Review Board for OD Practitioner, the premier organization development practitioner journal in the United States. Her articles on topics such as strategy, networking, and change are regularly published by Quiet Revolution, Inc.Com, CIO.Com, American Management Association, and other venues. Maya blogs at Complex Change & Collaboration.

Maya's clients include BASF, Bayer, Biogen Idec, eCopy, Fidelity Investments, the Hanover Insurance Group, Intel, McKesson, MIT, Merrimack Pharmaceuticals, Thomson Reuters, and Vertex. She serves as an advisor to Gartner, the leading technology research and advisory company, on change management best practices.
