Flying Without A Helicopter

It's graduation season, and that means a lot of new faces are about to enter the workforce for the first time. Do they have the necessary skills to succeed in an increasingly competitive world? Or do they fall into the trap of thinking work is boring, tedious, difficult, and frustrating? As their parent or manager, do you know how to help them become healthy, independent, self-reliant workers who will thrive on their own?

Dr. Joanie Connell, author of Flying Without A Helicopter, has decades of experience in working and consulting with employees, managers, and executives in the business world. Her expertise on what it takes to make it in the real world of work has been accumulated over 20 years of experience in the workplace and over a decade of research in academic literature and the media.

Listen in as Joanie shares how you can help make the next generation more independent. Learn how to set their expectations straight and guide them to greater (smarter) independence and creativity. Equip yourself—and them—with the DIY toolkit to help them thrive in their new setting. If you have a child who is thinking about college or you work with new college graduates (or maybe you are one yourself!), you won’t want to miss this hour!

How we can create positive first impressions and avoid causing others to lose face? How can we build trust and lasting relationships inside and outside the workplace?
