When was the last time you really thought about your own professional development? It’s no secret that people who are intentional and savvy about charting their careers are more successful and maybe even happier. The problem is this: We are bombarded with opportunities for developing ourselves and our careers. But we rarely take the time to navigate them by articulating what these goals are and then charting what learning experiences and people can help us get there. This session offers you focused time to make professional growth personal to you. In it, you will develop a concrete plan to use to pursue your career goals.

This interactive session begins with an activity to help you recognize your core competencies and how the influence your career pursuits. We will then jumpstart your thinking with creativity exercises to identify skills and knowledge gaps and to begin laying out the activities and team of people that will move you closer to your professional sweet spot. You will have the opportunity to uncover what you value and want from your professional life, brainstorm to identify career options, set attainable goals, and create your own individual plan for achieving them.

Come learn from experienced colleagues who understand the wonderful, often crazy, world of higher education IT as you chart your professional development plan. Roll up your sleeves, invest in yourself, and leave with a toolkit that you can put to use immediately to get the most out of your SIGUCCS experience and beyond.
