Several decades of Gallup research show that approximately 70% of the US population is not engaged at work, which costs the American economy billions of dollars, and exacts an untold cost on individual potential. When people have thriving, purposeful careers, the impact in all areas of their lives is priceless.

The Leadership Education committee of WLI invites you to attend a career workshop hosted by Denise Riebman, Director, Career Development & Alumni Services at the Trachtenberg School of Public Policy and Public Administration at The George Washington University. Ms. Riebman is a career development specialist who applies a strength-based, positive framework towards inspiring individuals for professional and life happiness. She has spent 20 years working in the nonprofit and higher education sectors, specializing in career advancement, professional leadership and community development. Click here for Denise’s bio.

This highly interactive and engaging workshop is based on empirical research from career development and positive psychology and will provide participants with practical tools and resources for strength building, value assessment and purpose exploration to flourish professionally long-term.

Workshop topics and activities include:

  • Big Career Questions, Big Career Stickiness
  • Career Happiness Connection
  • Strength Building Deep Dive
  • Value Assessment
  • Purpose Exploration
  • Connecting it All Together
  • Career Happiness Marathon

A pre-work packet will be distributed ahead of the workshop date and participants will bring it to the session as a base for workshop activities.
