Spring Planning Work Session
Time & Location
About The Event
This event is open to members in good standing. EAG requires new EAG members/designees to attend at least two monthly meetings prior to attending the Spring Planning Work Session. The Spring Planning Work Session is an opportunity to influence the direction of the organization in the coming year. In addition, targeted training is provided. Our training focus this year is helping you grow your edges to expand your confidence in your own unique strengths. We stand at the threshold between that we know and are familiar with, and the unknown. By discovering our individual strengths and learning new ways to act and react in our lives we will grow our edges and expand our capacity to lead even though we are not in charge. Think of it as standing at the edge of a cliff above the ocean, stepping off, and finding ourselves capable of surviving using knowledge and skills we already have deep within ourselves.
Work Session: Leveraging our individual strengths to support and mentor each other in reaching our goals
Members of EAG come together annually to plan and organize the direction and curriculum of the monthly meetings and special events. The business meeting is critical to organizational planning and development. This is when member input guides the career development direction and opportunities for the coming year, and helps deepen peer networking and support connections. We welcome your enthusiasm, ideas, and direction.

Back by popular demand, Haley Lowe, MA, will lead us in training designed to empower EAG members in his or her professional and personal lives.
