What you’ll do

For this experience, you and your team will work as panelists for a seminar about professional development. Together, you must discuss any number of the following topics for a length of 45 minutes to 1 hour:

  • Communication - All About Emailing
  • Communication - Present Your Best Self
  • Accountability - Managing Time: Yours & Others'
  • Leadership - Where Are You Headed? Vision & Goal-Setting
  • Leadership - Leaders Solve Problems: Conflict Management
  • Leadership - Working Together: Understanding Leadership Styles
  • Leadership - Essentials (Integrity, Empathy, Authenticity, Emotional Intelligence, & Humility)
  • Professionalism at the Workplace
  • Professionalism - I Still See You! Professionalism in a Virtual Setting

You are free to choose as many topics as you wish, as long as the time frame allows. After the seminar, you will hold a brief Q&A session with the students and answer question they have about your talk.

As you present your topics, please be sure to contextualize your discussion and insights within the current pandemic. The student participants are looking to learn more about the skills that they will need for their future jobs especially because they aren’t getting this information from their in-person school settings.
