There is a common theme to many of the comments on this blog. While we are each in our own unique phase of career activism, we all share a commitment to its power and promise.
That allegiance is the foundation for a community, and it’s time our community became real as well as virtual. Therefore, I‘m pleased to announce that I will convene the first meeting of the Career Activist Republic on Saturday, May 18th in Washington, D.C.
This one-day event will offer two important benefits:
First, it will be a chance to get a detailed introduction to the core elements of career activism: becoming a person of talent, practicing economic disobedience, and building career fitness.
Second, it will be an opportunity to meet and get to know other career activists. It’s lonely out there, so connecting with those who share your outlook will be both reassuring and invigorating.
I’m truly looking forward to meeting the participants and helping them strengthen their understanding of the principles and practices of career activism. The program is designed for both those looking for a new job and those looking to achieve greater success in the one they have or hope to have in the future. It is limited to just 50 individuals on a first-committed, first-included basis.
Here’s the agenda:
9:00 – 9:30 AM Sign-in and networking
9:30 – 10:00 AM Making Introductions & Setting the Day’s Goals
10:00 – 11:00 AM The New World of Work After the Great Recession
11:00 AM – Noon How Career Activism Prepares You for Success in the New World
Noon – 1:00 PM Lunch and networking
1:00 – 2:00 PM Identifying Your Talent – Your Unique Capacity to Excel
2:00 – 3:00 PM Practicing Economic Disobedience in the New World
3:00 – 3:30 PM Coffee Break & Networking
3:30 – 4:30 PM Building Career Fitness in the New World
4:30 – 5:00 PM Capturing the Power & Promise of Career Activism for Yourself
The “textbooks” for our meeting will be my two latest books: The Career Fitness Workbook and A Multitude of Hope: a Novel About Rediscovering the American Dream. As the program involves exercises drawn from both books, you must have them with you to participate in the program. They are available at Amazon.com.
The fee to attend this inaugural meeting of the Career Activist Republic is just $59.00. It includes your lunch and the mid-afternoon coffee break.
