If you’re attending Perspectives 2018 on June 11th and 12th, make sure you stop by to say hi to Brad Whitehorn… or if your manager is going, make sure to tell them to stop by. We will have a bunch of our most popular resources on display so you can have a look at them. Brad will have a limited number of sample copies of our favourite assessments, including: Personality Dimensions, COPSystem, Career Dimensions, Career Exploration Inventory/Career Exploration Inventory EZ, Re-Employment Success Inventory, and a few others. Don’t forget our ever-popular draw prize; a box of Aurora Ontario’s finest artisanal chocolate – Fraktals, made just up the street from us. Make sure you drop your business card in the fish bowl for a chance to win!
Being part of the change, not just responding to it, requires executive skills and knowledge on a number of fronts. As we strengthen our Organizational Capacity, Governance and Community Engagement practices, we need fresh thinking and new skills. Selecting the right combination of sessions from these themes will help you to extend your vision and skills as a leader to make positive changes in your organization.
