BEST PRACTICES SATURDAY: Learn, Grow, Eat Great Food, Relax and Have Fun

At PSCDA's Best Practices Saturday, you'll make contact with the core you and identify key values that lead to a greater purpose. See old friends and make new ones in a beautiful, cozy setting where you can leave with ideas, exercises and stories that you can begin using immediately. We had a very enjoyable time last year and expect it to be even better this year.

When: Saturday, April 2, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. with a fabulous catered lunch. Stay as long as you can, but by all means remain for lunch.

Where: Virginia Stout’s 101-year-old home, 2822 10th Avenue East, Seattle, 98102 (just north of Hwy 520). Virginia's home has a great view of the Cascades and the University of Washington. See Google Maps.

Why Saturday?: To learn and network in the casual, relaxed atmosphere of a home without having to worry about getting back to the demands of the office.

There is space for 40, so be sure to register today. The cost is $10 for PSCDA members and $15 for nonmembers.

Best Practices Program

Passion and Purpose by
Bill Gregory
Feeling a strong career purpose and direction comes from making difficult decisions about a small number of competing priorities. Career counselors help people see new views of themselves through a combination of self-assessment strategies such as accomplishments review and inventory/indicator feedback. This information needs to be integrated.  Bill Gregory will show how a simple model of people can produce insight about who a person really is at their core. This insight results in more passion and a strong sense of purpose. Bill has recently published his book Work Finding.

Knowing One’s Values Leads to Greater Purpose by
Dan Kennedy
When our clients are working and feeling good, usually their employers feel good as well. When people work in ways that cause them to feel positive emotions, productivity, retention, and profitability typically rise as well. Those parts of us that make us come alive are called our values. Dan will lead us through an exercise that will help us discover our own unique collection of key values. Each of us will not only learn about ourselves, but we can then use this exercise with our own clients. Dan has been offering career and executive coaching services for the past 15 years.

Stories Shared by Kate Duttro and Tom Washington
Kate will share a story showing how helping a client identify a key experience, but one previously unappreciated by the client, led to a job offer. Tom will share how asking a single question of the hiring manager can provide a totally unfair advantage over the other candidates.
