Program Description:
Hard skills, soft skills - what are they? Be a part of an interactive discussion around this subject and more. We will dive into topics such as your 'Social Self' vs your 'Professional Self', 'Outer Focus' vs 'Inner' Focus, 'How To' vs 'Want To' and why these key distinctions make all the difference between rising to the top or being stuck in professional purgatory.

In this presentation you will:

  • Shift from left brain to whole brain thinking
  • Step into the Authentic YOU to experience greater power
  • Cultivate career enthusiasm
  • Quiet the inner critic

Many people miss out on living from their inner power. Come discover yours!

Melissa Ford Melissa Ford is a Business and Life Coach. Her experience shows us that we can change our passions into thriving careers, allowing us to do what we love and be paid well to do it. Melissa wasn't supposed to become a successful coach. In fact, she hated sales, didn't know anything about business and felt she should stick with her first chosen career. Early in the transition from practicing law to coaching, Melissa struggled with the same fears and self-doubts that keep so many from being successful. She proved herself wrong. Today, she uses her knowledge and experience to powerfully lead others to increase their prosperity whether they are executives, professionals, entrepreneurs, or career changers, and regardless of the obstacles they face. Melissa's legal training and personal experience has made her a rational and analytical coach with a bullseye focus, pinpointing exactly what propels her clients forward. Melissa, a Certified PCI Coach, received her undergraduate degree from University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and J.D. from DePaul University College of Law.
