Learn more about Jessica thru her site www.jessicamastors.com.
The following is a quick preview of what she'll be presenting:

The Practical Magic of Storytelling: How to Connect Better with People through Story

In every conversation - whether high stakes or low - there is an opportunity to meet the other person as a whole human being, rather than from within the professional shell we wear with our job titles. By telling short but meaningful personal stories - for which the human brain is hardwired - you can not only be more engaging, but also reveal yourself as both the master of your own experience and the multi-dimensional person you truly are. In this fun and interactive story workshop, you will gain practical storytelling skills you can use to connect more authentically and effectively with other people - co-workers, managers, clients, or those you just met at a networking event - around your experience, work, passions and pastimes.

Please contact me with any questions, hope to see you all there.

Intel Professional Development & Career Series Jan. 23, 8:00 AM 2016 at Intel Corporation - SC12

8:00am - 9:00am Registration / Networking / Continental Breakfast

9:00am - 9:30am Intel Welcome

9:30am - 10:30am Workshop #1-Behavioral Matrix
Presented by Kathy Quinlan Director of Training, PSI Seminars.

In this experiential workshop you will learn about yourself and the behaviors that impact your communication with others. You will learn how to listen and communicate effectively with different personalities to get what you want in your career and in your personal life. People naturally communicate in a style that resonates with others that are like them, but is often a barrier to those that are in a different position in the behavioral matrix. Every position in the behavioral matrix adds a unique value to the human experience and each person makes contributions to work, society and family that cannot be accomplished by a single individual. You will leave the workshop with a greater appreciation and understanding of the diversity in people and how to make your workplace and your life more effective and enjoyable

10:30am - 11:00am Break

11:00am - 12: noon Workshop #2 - The Magic Toolkit: Confidence and Persistence
Presented by Tiffany Crawford Founder CREATE Women's Leadership Institute

This workshop, the foundation of every successful career - confidence and persistence - will be discussed in practical steps for their sustainability and cultivation. In a busy corporate environment with increasing demands, moments and thoughts of self-doubt can creep in. These moments over time can begin to shake one's confidence and the habit of persistence can devolve into one of indecision and hesitation.
