How to…Keep Moving Forward
Young Quallies Chat Series: How to Navigate These Worrying Times
Presented by: Steve August, Founders Coach of Steve August Coaching
Chris Kann, Registered Corporate Coach of Chris Kann Coaching
This is a free event. Please RSVP by clicking the button above.
Learn from two prominent coaches and chat with other young pros and students on:
- What you can do to continue to move your career forward whether you're now working remotely from your team, or, if an independent consultant or business owner, your business is changing
- How to accept and respond to forces beyond your control
- Where to begin game planning for 'what's next'
- Ways to manage stress from information and worry overload
Sometimes advice from coaches can be helpful but not 100% actionable because they might not 'get' what we do as researchers, consultants, strategists, project managers, etc. Not here though. Both Chris and Steve have worked in our space as market researcher business owners.
This session is targeted to students and young professionals aged 35 and younger.
Brought to you by the QRCA Young Professionals Committee.
