Event Details

This program is designed to help you:

1. Understand where you are generating negative momentum, obstacles, and setbacks

2. Leverage a powerful model for accelerated momentum, advancement, and growth

3. Work with your brain's natural tendencies to create a pace, plan, and path that support your goals, priorities, and current capacity

The Success Brain: How to Get It, Build It, and Leverage will be facilitated by Anita Brick, Booth alum and Director of Career Advancement Programs at Chicago Booth. There will be a post program webinar to help you solidify your progress and ask questions. During the time between the in-person workshop and the teleconference, you will be documenting a few things that will be defined at the workshop, such as success filing, resizing the steps you're committed to – either by making them smaller, if you are not completing them, or by making them larger, if you complete your steps faster than expected, and thanking others for the help they give you – even for tiny and incomplete things.


Booth Club Members only: $15 (includes a modest breakfast)
