September Luncheon

“How to Create a Thriving and Authentic Career”
Guest Speaker: Kirsten Smith, Associate Director & Technology Officer at CSIS at Ball State
We will explore how to create a thriving and authentic career.  Using Marshall Goldman’s book “What Got You Here Won’t Get You There” as a basis for this discussion, we’ll look at how achieving more success requires you to move from where you are to a new place. Because people are successful, they believe they can continue to be successful.   They believe that the habits that got them to where they are now will get them to where they want to be.  We will look at the “success delusion”, talk about why we resist change when we are successful and what we can do to change our bad habits.
