Mixing and Matching Generations

Do you know your generation? Today, for the first time in history there are five generations actively engaged in the workplace. This complex mixture of workers, each with its own set of characteristics, motivations and skill sets often can lead to misunderstandings and complicate or even jeopardize the management of projects. Join us for breakfast Tuesday to test your generational knowledge, learn what makes generations “tick” and how to “play nice in the work sandbox.”

Chapter Engagement to Open Your Career Horizons 
 
Engaging the professional community in a new town is always a challenge. It’s tempting to repeat past success by getting in the same career groove – that can turn out to be a career rut. But, by fully engaging with the PMI regional chapter, you can get opportunities that are completely different, and often completely unexpected. In this unusual session, John ‘JP’ Peterson will share the incredible story of three completely divergent career paths taken in two years, all due in part to deep engagement with the PMI Tampa Bay Chapter.

Two Quick Ways to Derail Your Career in the Age of Social Media

Many people are stifled in their careers, not because of technical competency, but for emotional incompetency. They can be very smart and at the same time be very crude in how they use their smarts. This is true across creed, race or gender. It is true for every profession. It also holds true in personal relationships. In this powerful breakfast presentation, Sunny Faronbi will outline two major emotional intelligence skills that, if lacking, can limit your career. You don’t want to miss it!
