Tuesday, December 13, 2016
12-1PM PT (3-4PM ET)  |  FREE for WITI Members ($50 Nonmembers)

Presenter: Manuela Pauer

What makes us truly happy? Why is happiness so elusive at times? How can we bring more happiness into our work as well as our lives?

Wanting to be happy is such a universal goal, yet at the same time it seems to be a universal mystery as well.

We pursue so many goals in our career and in our life, thinking that reaching them will make us happy. But in reality, we are often working against our own happiness without even knowing it!

Join us in this webinar, so you can:

- Understand the Happiness Formula and what creates happiness
- Identify the type of work that will make you happy
- Uncover how to set goals that make you happy
- Learn and practice specific steps you can take and habits you can build to make you feel more fulfilled, more connected, and happier!

This workshop will draw from research and experience of a variety of experts, including:

Martin Seligman (Authentic Happiness)
Jonathan Haidt (The Happiness Hypothesis)
Tal Ben-Shahar (Happier)

The Knowledge Series™ - 5 Keys to Accelerate Your Success

Tuesday, January 17, 2017
12-1PM PT (3-4PM ET)  |  FREE for WITI Members ($50 Nonmembers)

Presenter: Judy Peebles

In this webinar, you will learn how the 5 Keys of The Knowledge Series™ get you clear on what you want, show you the steps to get there and provide you with the tools you need to succeed. Judy Peebles will discuss:

Vision - What do you want and why do you want it? Clarity is crucial, but so is knowing why you want to accomplish your goal. That is what keeps you going. And make sure that the why is your own - not someone else's why.

Framework - Action Plan. What are you willing to do? What are you unwilling to do? But don't wait until you have the entire plan before you start taking small steps.

Leverage - Support, Systems and Structure, Accountability, Resources - coaching & community. Don't do it alone. Ask for help.

Brilliance - What do you need to learn? We almost always need to learn something to accomplish a new goal. Identifying that need and taking steps to get there are essential to your success.

Breakthrough - What barriers (internal and external) are in your way? Often the internal barriers are the most daunting, especially the ones we are not even aware of. Don't let your beliefs about yourself, the world or anything else sabotage your vision.

Thursday, February 2, 2017

Presenter: Jamie Lee

Let's face it - the gender wage gap is real. It hasn't budged in over a decade and at its current rate, won't close until the year 2159.

So is gender blowback. To boldly ask for what you want is to walk a razor-thin edge because you risk your relationship with key decision makers.

In other words, you are "damned if you ask and damned if you don't."

But, it doesn't have to be that way.

There are concrete steps you can take to prevent gender blowback. You can learn and master negotiation jiujitsu so you can close your wage gap, up-level your career and strengthen relationships.

In this exclusive WITI webinar, Negotiation expert and She Negotiates consultant Jamie Lee will explore four concrete ways that ambitious women in technology can prevent gender blowback and confidently ask for what they want. You will learn:

- The core frameworks for collaborative negotiation
- How to retain and strengthen key relationships while making a compelling case for what you want
- How to use leverage to your best advantage without coming across as aggressive or greedy
- The negotiation mindset that results in win-win outcomes

Jamie Lee is a She Negotiates consultant, an award-winning Toastmasters speaker and pragmatic negotiation geek dedicated to helping women get bolder, braver and better paid. Through consulting, training and speaking, she helps women catapult their careers to the next level with a gutsy ask.
