HBA Indiana Presents a Panel Discussion: Harnessing Your Personal Game Plan on June 9, 2011

Today’s job market is more challenging and competitive than ever. To stand out from your peers and be recognized by your superiors, your performance must be stellar and you must be able to communicate your value. Come spend an evening with five dynamic young women and hear how they put themselves on the fast-track for executive success.

This casual, free-flowing session will highlight the importance of identifying your own plan for advancement. We’ll discuss the kinds of risks one must consider taking, the pitfalls that can come along with taking those risks, the importance of a career mentor, how your “comfort zone” can hold you back and much more.

Have you joined the HBA Indiana Chapter’s LinkedIn page? Log on and get connected because we’ll be posting the bios of our five panelists over the next few weeks. They are eager to answer your questions on Thursday, June 9!

Learning Objectives:

1. Learn tips for strategizing your own game plan for success.

2. Hear what attitudes and traits thriving, young executives think can help make you a standout in your profession.

3. Discover the importance of a mentor and how having one can help you advance in your career.

4. Learn tips for stepping outside your comfort zone to stay relevant in your field.
