Vortragstitel: Know your strengths: how to identify your own resources and build on them (during the job application process and beyond)

Inhalt:

An important part of growing and winning authentically (getting the job, succeeding in the position, progressing in the career, etc.) is having a solid understanding of our own resources, of the values, skills, interests that we have in ourselves. As easy and obvious as it sounds, it requires much self-reflection and most people are not truly aware of their own resources (beyond a few obvious ones, of course). In my short presentation, I intend to give very practical tips, self-reflection exercises, journaling questions, etc – aimed at helping the audience to take a deep dive in themselves and to identify their own strengths… as well as “own” them, i.e. build on them during their professional journey.

Approaching a job application process with a mindset of wholeness (rather than a feeling of “not good enough”) can be a game-changer. I truly believe that having the self-awareness and self-confidence stemming from an in-depth understanding of what one can bring to a job/role can make a huge difference and for this reason, I look forward to sharing a few helpful tips with the Sticks & Stones participants.
