To get the most out of this program you will be expected to get involved with networking opportunities, complete pre-work before sessions & show up to all sessions prepared to fully engage.
After being in this industry for 17 years, I found myself a bit stuck in my career. I was hoping for inspiration and a safe place to seek answers, and that is exactly what I got from WCMSoar! The workshops helped me to hone my skills in negotiation, difficult conversations and much more. I feel like, I’ve learned so much more about myself and what I want out of my career going forward.
The best part for me was engaging with peers at a similar career stage. I found the peer-mentoring to be so energizing and gave me excellent perspective on how to better frame my conversations with my leaders. Thanks, WCM! I had a fantastic experience with the WCMSoar program and would highly recommend it.
