Conversations during the call
00:17:18 Ellen Guthrie: I love stepping stones <3
00:26:06 Belma McCaffrey: So many members here who have done values work and they can shed insight on how that’s an anchor – Kelley, Ellen, Alex, Jennifer, Kristin, Rachel to name a few 🙂
00:27:16 Aleta Williams: I hear you Ellen
00:28:11 Tami Renner: Thank you, Ellen! That makes so much sense and really, really resonated with me!
00:29:05 Alex Wang: I agreed with you Ellen re: the perfect thing
00:29:16 Kelley Jabr: Yes, that definitely resonated with me too
00:34:25 Kristin Chasky: Yes Alex! Such a good point that some passions can just be separate hobbies instead of trying to fit them under one umbrella. I really resonate with that.
00:38:39 Aleta Williams: I hear you Tami. Resume says Project Manager but I want to shift.
00:41:42 Jennifer Janes: That’s so helpful. I need to focus on ideation and reflection.
00:41:46 Belma McCaffrey: It’s ok! it’s so easy to jump to the end because the end provides a sense of certainty
00:42:49 Natalie Korda: Definitely good to be patient. Something that you didn’t think about may come along and be a great fit.
00:43:08 Belma McCaffrey: And I want to highlight what I shared with Natalie > root yourself in your strengths and your values and then use those in your job search. Look for how your strengths and your values show up in the exploration phase
00:45:40 Alex Wang: Tami I appreciate your openness and candid reflection! very inspiring 🙂
00:49:37 Belma McCaffrey: Call with Kristin
00:50:29 Kayla Morton: I have to head out to a meeting; however, this has been very helpful! Have a great rest of your day everyone 🙂
00:50:40 Natalie Korda: Aleta, what do you enjoy about program management?
00:52:02 Alex Wang: The SCARF model in the mindset module has helped me when I get impatient or frustrated, I use it to dig into what’s behind the emotions and that calms me down.
00:52:36 Natalie Korda: It’s hard to figure out sometimes how to take our skills and transfer them to new positions, even if we are well qualified. Many times it seems that companies already know who they will hire and do it within, just posting the position to fulfill a requirement.
00:52:55 Belma McCaffrey: Here’s the SCARF model that Alex is referencing.
00:53:55 Jennifer Janes: @natalie – that’s been my experience as well. I have some really great interviews where they hired internally.
00:54:22 Belma McCaffrey: And Aleta – does project management align with your strengths? And what are the parts you don’t enjoy? Are they culture / values focused vs. less skills focused?
00:54:37 Natalie Korda: @Jennifer Definitely a bit of a way to feel deflated when you have so much to offer.
01:01:11 Jennifer Janes: That is so hard when there is no clear direction or is constantly changing. I don’t operate well in that environment.
01:01:25 Natalie Korda: Ditto!
01:05:21 Belma McCaffrey: firstname.lastname@example.org
01:05:34 Kelley Jabr: Thanks everyone for sharing today. It’s always insightful and encouraging. <3
01:05:51 Natalie Korda: Thanks for everything! This group is great!
01:05:56 Tami Renner: Thank you, everyone! This has been so helpful!
01:05:59 Jennifer Janes: Great session!
01:06:03 Ellen Guthrie: Thanks all!
01:06:04 Flora Massah: Thanks everyone!
