The recent recession has toppled and transformed our ideas about just about everything.  Massive change is afoot and many of us are still reeling from the work-force bloodletting that began three years ago and the decline of many once-admired companies. 

If you look closely, you’ll see that a major paradigm shift is occurring. 

Organizations and individuals are looking inward and seeking a return to traditional human values like honesty, trust, moderation, open communication, and one-on-one relationship building.  To move ahead, you must understand this transformation and adapt to new ways of doing things. 

This webcast explores the biggest myths of business success that people believe to be true even though they don't work for 98% of all truly successful people. 

If adhering to these myths didn't get you places before, it really won't now.

Join us and discover how to throw away these myths and determine how to drive your career forward in this new world of work.

What You Will Learn

  • Why social media can be a blessing and a curse
  • How do you keep the shoulds and the musts from overtaking your work life? 
  • Work for a bad company? Why the problem might just be you
  • The advantages of staying right where you are
  • How to subtly spread the word about your successes
  • And more!

While attending this program is FREE, reservations are required.
