How many of us have been in a business or project launch meeting and details of what needs to be done start to be thrown around and then the "leader" in the room gets asked a question, and the gut-wrenching response comes back, "Well, It depends." Well, thank you "Captain obvious!" is what we think, well, maybe just me. How many projects or decisions have been stalled by "It depends"? If we as leaders know so much about the path to improved organizational performance, why is it so difficult to get there?
This interactive session will incorporate small group and large group think-tank discussions on how we can close the gap between Knowing versus Doing. We will begin the work to put to death the defacto "It Depends" and build a healthy living environment for decision-making and action-taking.

It’s interesting to note that most people spend more time planning a two-week vacation than they do planning a job search or a career change. Creating an effective career strategy is critical to selecting the next steps in your career whether it is advancing with your current employer or taking on a new position with a new employer. Creating a career strategy will help you define the criteria that will ensure that your next career opportunity will meet your goals and expectations. It will ensure that you won’t make bad career choices by choosing opportunities that are not in line with your career goals.
This presentation will give you the clear understanding of how to develop your own personal career strategy including how to define target employers, how to define job titles that align with you career goals, how to track the career opportunities that you have applied for, how to use tools such as a résumé, a LinkedIn profile, cover letters and your network to gain the attention of employers that you are interested in.
Do you find yourself frequently managing projects? Does your title reflect this work? These are questions you might ask yourself if you are a project manager, but have not yet made the leap into official project management. How can these skills take you into different industries such as clinical research, programming, or regulatory and quality? We have assembled a panel of experienced speakers who made the leap from academia to a wide array of project management positions. This diversity of job descriptions can help you envision where you want your career to grow and how project management can help you get there!
