Monday Morning Speaker:  Veronica Matthews
Self-Care and Mindset Management Two must-haves for Life
(and Career Transition)

Conversation with


A resume and interviewing practice are not the only tools you need to have for a successful career transition. A self-care plan and mindset management are two must-haves for not only a positive career transition, but also for life.

Self-care is defined as deliberate activities a person engages in on a regular basis to manage his/her health, wellbeing and stress. In the hierarchy of service, we often put ourselves last. Unfortunately, it is very difficult, and nearly impossible, to serve ourselves or others well, from an empty cup. When a person is well sourced by a regular, effective routine of self-care, he/she can then have the stamina and preparation needed for daily life; accomplishing goals; serving family and other activities such as completing the job search process. Mindset management is also an important part of a self-care routine for daily life, but most importantly for the career search. It is not unusual to send out what seems like hundreds of resumes on a weekly basis and receive maybe one or two calls for an interview. How positive and focused you remain amid this seemed constant rejection will keep the windows of possibility open for the right opportunity to come along.

We’ll discuss the correlation between self-care, mindset management, life and the career transition. Additionally, in this workshop, you will:

• learn the importance of self-care and mindset management in your daily living;
• create a plan for daily self-care and mindset management – the two must-haves for life and your career transition;
• learn about the hierarchy of service and where to properly place your service priorities; and
• leave with a renewed approach to self-care and mindset management that will reignite your life and career transition.
