Book Club: The Awakening by Kate Chopin @ The Wolfsonian-FIU
Jun 5 @ 7:00 pm

The Wolfsonian Book Club explores literary works whose subjects are relevant to current exhibitions and collection themes. Set in New Orleans and the Southern Louisiana coast at the end of the nineteenth century, the plot of The Awakening centers on Edna Pontellier and her struggle to reconcile her increasingly unorthodox views on femininity and motherhood with the prevailing social attitudes of the turn-of-the-century American South. It is one of the earliest American novels that focuses on women’s issues without condescension.

Soft Skills for Strong Leaders: 10 Steps to Management Success @ Online
Jun 10 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Webinar presented by Helen Iascke.

Successful management and leadership is just as much about ‘who you are’ as ‘what you know’.

helen iascke photo
When you are good at what you do, the natural reward is promotion, and so having once been part of the team, you are now in charge of it. Your first management role can be a lonely and daunting place and you need special knowledge about how to handle new responsibilities.
 
A new skill set is required to manage and lead. You now need the ability to influence and engage others, and to deliver results through them. It is the lack of these soft skills, and the lack of emotional intelligence that can derail the most technically knowledgeable leader. The good news is that you can learn these skills, through raising your self-awareness and being more aware of those around you. 
 
Join Helen to learn:
  • How to prepare for leadership opportunities
  • Changing your mindset from follower to leader
  • Proven strategies to engage your team


Your organization will benefit from your leadership abilities. Learn how you can fine tune them.
