Spark Your Passion With BOLD Career Moves

Credit card users MUST pay in advance. If you are paying at the event, we can only take cash or check.

Program Description:

Feeling stuck and burned out is often a very human reaction to fear and repetition at work. We keep performing in the same ways, because we know what works. We are afraid because everything is changing around us, and we’re not sure of our place. We believe somehow our excellent performance will be noticed. And yet others -- sometimes inferior performers -- are given great new opportunities instead. 

The reality is this: disturbances in the system are noticed. Bold career moves, new ideas, inventive suggestions, uncommon thinking and risk-taking are all actions that get noticed and rewarded. Each one requires the spark of passion. These "sparks" fuel new programs, new methods, new practices, new measures, and new job positions. Most important, boldness can spark your own Career Passion® and help you grow to the next level. 

Join us for lunch, and learn:

  • Why playing it safe is the riskiest move of all
  • The true nature of creativity
  • How to turn common knowledge into uncommon wisdom
  • How to pre-sell your ideas so that they are automatically accepted
  • How to collaborate with your future boss
  • Sparking enthusiasm and support for your ideas
  • Turn a creative idea into a new career
The most important commitment you will ever make is to yourself and your career. Are you ready to spark your own Career Passion and make a bold new move?
