JUNE 14 | Brain-washed: How to Dump Stinkin' Thinkin'

Every person on the planet has struggled at some point with limiting beliefs. When we have "stinkin' thinkin," we procrastinate, vacillate, hesitate ... and our best self hides in the shadows. Join us to learn brain-friendly techniques that will rewire your clients' brains (and yours!) to live bigger, bolder, truer lives.

Presenter: Susan Britton Whitcomb, PCC, Founder and President of The Academies, Inc., is a leading authority on career coach training. Her fascination with a brain-friendly approach to training coaches led her to earn her designation as a Master Certified Neuropositive Coach with the Applied Neuroscience Institute. She has personally mentored hundreds of coaches on five continents in achieving their career coaching certification. Author of 7 books, including a long-time best-seller Resume Magic, Whitcomb is a frequent source for the media (The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, US News & World Report), as well as an in-the-trenches, experienced coach who has worked with thousands of professional, management, and executive job seekers during her career.

CTL Releases Annual Industry Whitepaper

The annual industry trends whitepaper is now available. This year's white paper explores key questions the career industry continues to pose in light of recent developments in technology, resume development, and social media: Does personal branding still matter? Are video resumes or a paper resumes more important? How does having a social media presence impact career advancement?

The insights originate annually from Career Jam: Where Experts Forecast The New & The Next. Career Jam participants include a diverse group of professionals. Their insights – based on daily interactions with job seekers and hiring authorities worldwide – reveal dynamic changes in the way we work today, and the way we'll work tomorrow. Mark November 30 for the 2018 Career Jam event to join in setting the trends for the future!
