Women in Transition: “Surviving & Thriving Through Life’s Challenges”

with Laura Ziegler, MA

We are all faced with change. Our kids go off to kindergarten or college, a parent passes away, we are offered a promotion, or we lose our job.  A few of us embrace change and look forward to the next stage.  But most of us resist and often oppose them.

In a lively and informative talk, Laura Ziegler, a Career and Transition Coach, will help you understand the Transition Model, determine where you are in the process, and how to successfully navigate the stages.

Whether you are thinking about a change or in the midst of it, you will leave this presentation with a greater clarity and confidence to move forward.

Lecture is at no cost, but please RSVP with us online.
