APICS Houston - "PDM" Professional Development Meeting

  • The HESS Club 5430 Westheimer Rd. Houston, Texas 77056 (map)

Move from the Same Old Stuff to Well On the Way in your professional life – with your teams, career, or business relationships.  Through busting assumptions, unleashing creative ideas and building the courage to take risks you will no longer be stuck in the same old stuff.

Participants will assess where they are now (Same Old Stuff) in a particular area of concern in their professional lives where progress is desired.  It may be with their skill set and knowledge, career ladder, communication skills, dealing with politics and corporate culture, business relationships with peers or higher ups inside and outside the company, or leadership skills. Participants will determine where they would like to be (Well on the Way) and what that would look like in the desired area of focus. The gap between where they are and where they would like to be will be examined and clarified. Goals with a vision will be set.

Success in the transition from SOS to WOW can follow many different paths, as unique as the individual. Techniques and exercises in the most common areas addressed in professional coaching in MS Johnson’s experience are presented and practiced to move the participants from their S.O.S. to W.O.W. They include focus and being present by addressing multi-tasking  vs focus and the pros and cons; busting assumptions regarding ourselves, others and situations that impede progress; partnering with peers and higher ups to maintain open communication and effectiveness; self-talk that focuses on staying open to possibilities; unleashing creative ideas to produce options for advancement;  examining risk taking tendencies and making a plan to take courageous risks; and setting effective daily habits to incorporate the desired actions to produce the WOW!
