Opening Keynote Speaker: Una Martone, President/CEO of Leadership Harrisburg

Breakout Sessions:

Jenny Daddario - Insecurities That Hold You Back, How to Survive & Thrive in the Workplace
Everyone deals with self-doubt differently.  But we all agree, it can cripple us in the workplace.  Learn specific and strategic ways to deal with and overcome workplace insecurities, and gain back the confidence that will push you towards the success you deserve.

Dr. Julee Bertsch - Introduction to Career Assessments
Julee will provide an introduction to Career Assessments, highlighting the Clifton Strengths Finder.  She will cover the philosophy of Strengths and walk through individual, managerial and team strategies to increase effectiveness, self-confidence as well as help to provide direction for one’s career. This program will speak directly to becoming more of who you are and help you to Remove Your Mask. To get the most out of this discussion, participants should go to the GallupStrengthsFinder.com, take the Top 5 Assessment for $19.99, and bring a copy of their results to the program.

Lunch Keynote Speaker: Mohammed Ahamed - Multiculturalism in the Workplace: Unpacking the visible and invisible layers to meaningfully engage with and across differences.

Rhonda Campbell - Stop Comparing...Get Confident!
I've been in the workplace for decades. I honestly thought by this point in my career, the debate between assertiveness vs. aggressiveness would have long been settled. I had hoped that women would no longer compare themselves to men in terms of how they are perceived in the business world. Here's the bottom line...you define your demeanor. You determine if and when you are assertive or aggressive; both are needed at times in our lives. The challenge is that we, as women, still think it matters a whole lot more than it does. Confidence is what we should be striving for, not worrying about which "A" word someone uses to describe us.

Ken Altenbach - Ethical Behavior
More than ever, it seems daily we either hear or read news about unethical behavior in our businesses, churches, schools and government.  Collaboration, trust and ethical decision making are in the forefront of today’s concerns and will continue to play a major role well into the future. It is critical therefor, for leaders to understand how individual choices that reflect cooperation and competition make an impact on both business and personal interactions and the results from the decisions made.
In this break out session, participants will:

  • Learn the meaning of ethics and ethical behavior
  • Learn the meaning of morals
  • Participate in a simulation activity designed to create an awareness of the consequences of individual choices in terms of collaboration and ethics.

Closing Keynote Speaker: Kendra Aucker - Getting Out of Your Own Way
