Young Professionals: Advance Your Career
DescriptionOnline registration is now closed, but you can still register at the event regsitration desk at the Hilton Dulles.
Join us to network with your peers and for an interactive and fun learning experience on how to advance your career! and enjoy appetizers from Barcelona Wine Bar along with beer and wine.
We will explore DiSC®, a behavioral assessment designed to help you understand yourself AND other people too. It is a critical tool for determining your natural behavior style, which in turn, improves communication, reduces conflict and helps to understand people who are not like you…. or too much like you.
Our goal is to help you work more effectively with others especially cross-generationally and up the ladder. Through personal insights into your own strengths and challenges, you will learn to better relate to others and potentially ask for that promotion you want!
Ask your HR professional, management, and leadership team to join you.
To learn more about DiSC® and take the assessment before the event (optional), please visit GRCC member, Training Solutions, Inc.
