Peer Delegation: How Do I Manage My Peers?
What happens when you are a project lead, but you don’t have any formal authority over the individuals on the team? Leading your peers requires a different skill set than leading team members or managing stakeholders – to succeed a project lead needs to build alliances. Managing peers is all about setting specific and strategic standards and expectations, maintaining transparency and defining metrics of success.
Unconscious Bias in the Workplace
True diversity is about more than just numbers. It’s about inclusion and equity — about creating a space in which everyone’s voice is heard and everyone’s skills and gifts are recognized. One of the biggest obstacles to diversity is unconscious bias. This session will discuss what unconscious bias is, the many ways in which it is experienced, and how it can hinder the effectiveness of teams and organizations.
Imposter Syndrome – Overcoming the “Fake It ‘Til You Make It” Mantra
Have you ever stepped into a new role or taken the lead on a project, only to feel horribly underqualified? This feeling of self-doubt, inadequacy or insecurity around professional responsibilities is not only stress-inducing, but can significantly impede your growth and confidence at work. The good news is that you’re not alone. Nearly 70% of the U.S. population has experienced these feelings which is known as imposter syndrome. Even better, there are strategies and resources that can help you tame your imposter syndrome.
Financial Planning – Is Your Future Fiscally Secure?
Planning for your future in government also means planning for your fiscal future. Is your Thrift Savings Plan set up properly? Do you have the right insurance? What about liability? Should you buy a house? The questions surrounding your financial future can be vast. And the terminology used to describe your financial wellness can feel like a foreign language.
