"EOS / Traction: What a Person in Transition Needs to Know"
with: Joel Swanson
Thursday Morning, July 1st
7:30 - 9:00 am
EOS (Entrepreneurial Operating System) is a comprehensive business system, integrating a holistic business model with a complete set of business tools, and processes to align and synchronize all the pieces of a business to produce desired results.
More companies are running on EOS in the Twin Cities than any other metro area, so if you haven’t yet interviewed with one, there’s a very good chance you will! This presentation’s purpose is not to teach you about EOS. Rather, it is to help you understand the most important things about this system, so that you can as prepared as possible when interacting with an EOS company.
Joel Swanson, a Certified EOS Implementer, has a passion for helping business owners get what they want from their businesses and doing so in a way that transforms the lives of the people around them. He has been running, leading, and consulting for small and mid-sized businesses his entire career, and his clients consistently and confidently outperform their competitors.
A lifelong learner, he has a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, a Master’s Degree in Theology (he says of himself “I have a bad habit of getting degrees that I don’t use”), and many shelves full of books in his office.
"The Art of Tactful Self Promotion in Your Job Search"
with: Nancy Burke
Thursday Evening, July 8th
7:00 - 8:30 pm
Tactful self-promotion is a crucial career and life competency, especially for people in job transition. Even people who hate the idea of self-promotion must find ways to increase their visibility if they want more job opportunities, recognition, and rewards. Whether you’re in transition or not, promoting yourself is not optional.
Tactful self-promotion IS NOT about being a blowhard, stealing the credit or elbowing your way to the center of attention; it IS about cultivating a positive reputation.
In this presentation, you’ll learn practical strategies for:
Positioning yourself in ways that highlight your value, differentiators and accomplishments, helping you stand out from your competition,
Cultivating strategic relationships and expanding your network,
Gaining constructive visibility by managing meetings, working a room, and leveraging social media.
Nancy Burke has had many years of doing career coaching and helping people who are in transition. She, and co-author Richard Dodson have published a book, Power Your Career: The Art of Tactful Self-Promotion at Work.
