Have you ever struggled to see a colleague’s point of view? Have you ever had a disagreement with someone because they didn’t understand your position?
Perspective is defined as having a particular attitude or view of something. We each have our own perspective which shapes our thoughts, values and beliefs.
Mutual respect is possible when you are willing to experience something from another’s perspective. This insight increases your ability to understand and gain clarity on the situation which, in turn supports you in communicating your unique vision to others more effectively.
Our Scala Connects series is designed as a forum for women to connect with like-minded professionals and get a break from their weekly routine. These free, 1-hour sessions over lunchtime provide networking opportunities to help you learn and grow your career.
Finding Your New
Jane Gaynor of Gain Your Edge Coaching will lead you through this online webinar "Finding Your New unNormalTM"
Vince Lombardi said, "It's not whether you get knocked down, it's whether you get back up."
These unNormal times have knocked many of us down in a variety of ways. It is natural to resist change. We perceive it as a threat and instinctively react with 'fight or flight'.
Getting 'back up' requires unique strategies to navigate through adversity. On Tuesday, May 26th at 12 noon, please join us in an interactive online session where we will discuss how to build and fortify a resilient mindset for you to pivot and adapt to change quicker.
