Millions of Millennials: The Disconnect in Today’s Workforce, and What We Can Do About It

By Hao Guo and Season Yao

Tuesday, September 25/Wednesday, September 26

One of the most highly rated presentations at our 2018 Conference, Millions of Millennials focuses on young adults and their place in the workforce. As millennials become increasingly crucial players in our companies, schools, and institutions, generational differences must be explored and embraced. In this session, we will discuss some of the most striking and consequential ways that young workers are reshaping the world around them, and raise ideas about how educators can bridge the gap between young workers’ expectations and the professional needs that they must fulfill.

Intro to Design Thinking & Positive Psychology

By Julie Neill

Wednesday, October 17/ Thursday, October 18

This webinar will provide an introduction to two influential fields that are impacting career development in the US. Design thinking, a problem-solving methodology used by companies such as Google and Apple to spur innovation, is now being used to help individuals navigate careers that are no longer linear. Design thinking can help unlock creativity within the career planning process eliciting more varied options and spur individuals out of analysis paralysis into concrete action.

At the same time, the field of positive psychology which focuses on strengths has brought attention to the notion of purpose and meaningful work. This webinar will provide a brief overview of both design thinking and positive psychology and discuss how to apply the principles of both to help individuals thrive in the ever-changing future of work.

It Takes a Village: Maximizing Engagement in School, at Work, in Life

By Roberta Neault

Monday, November 5 / Tuesday, November 6

Teachers and school administrators want to facilitate student engagement. Supervisors and managers focus on employee engagement and how it contributes to productivity and retention. Individuals, across the globe, want lives that are meaningful, interesting, and manageable.

The Career Engagement model bridges these silos, providing a conceptual framework for understanding how the right mix of challenge and capacity can result in optimal (and sustainable) engagement, across the lifespan. Without such alignment, individuals can begin to feel overwhelmed or underutilized. Spending too long in either or both of those states can result in disengagement.

Join co-developer of the career engagement model, Dr. Roberta Neault, for an introduction to this model and tips on how to use it with students, parents, community members, employers, and government policy makers to maximize engagement across diverse life roles and settings.
