Consider the task of building an actual pyramid, which must be done by coordinating all four sides at once, not completing one side at a time. Marc Strano of SHIFT Leadership Development says that career development during job transition occurs much the same way.
At an upcoming meeting of the Professional Service Group of Mercer County, Strano will discuss ways each person can attend to four things during transition — and how to get support — while growing oneself and building one’s career: Professional Development, New Tools, New People, and Well Being.
The free workshop will take place Friday, February 21, from 9:45 a.m. to noon at the Princeton Public Library. For more information, visit www.psgofmercercounty.org.
