Don’t Resign...Redesign!

March 18, 2023 

Grow Your Career Conference Morning Concurrent Session

UCalgary, Downtown Campus (in-person)

You may hate your job, be bored by your job or be unchallenged by your job. You may have never seen it as a permanent job, but here you are 10 years later. The process of redesigning isn't easy, but it may be easier than starting from scratch. So, how do we implement the redesign option?

In this workshop, we’ll help you reframe a few common dysfunctional beliefs as a personal way to re-evaluate problems that may be holding you back, as well as discuss some warning signs of toxic workplaces. You'll learn how to make your work inspire you, challenge you and fit you like your favourite pair of jeans again!

Please note that this session is part of the 2023 Grow Your Career Conference full in-person conference day on March 18.
