Designing Your Career: Making Power Moves!

Wednesday 2 November 2022; 12:00 to 1:00 PM Eastern time (GMT -4)

Tech Comm has evolved over the years – it’s not just writing printed user guides anymore. So, forget titles and just think about what you want to do. Do you want to: write docs, design infographics, develop video training, create Help systems, focus on social media, artificial intelligence…?

Once you set your goal, how do you design the path to get there? In this session, I will share with you some strategies for forging a path to your desired goal, even if there isn’t a path already.



The objectives of the presentation will be to define and differentiate career goals and career paths, help participants understand their current role, and give them a plan for creating a strategy to achieve their career goals with a defined career path.


Attendee Takeaways:

  • Learn to design your career path, ignoring titles and focusing on what you want to do
  • Understand that if the perfect job doesn’t exist, you have the power to create it
  • Learn how not to be your own roadblock
  • Build a 30-60-90 day plan that can help you transition into a new manager role.
  • Understand how Tuckman’s model of team development can help you grow a more cohesive and productive team.
