Special Events with KeyInsight Consulting

 

1. Group Online Discussion:  Getting the most out of your Predictive Index report.  You probably weren't looking at the report with regard to job searches.  Well, now let's do that. Use this Doodle poll to find a time that works for everyone - by Friday the 8th.  

Can't wait for the Group discussion?  Review my key advice 
here.

2. Have a Clarity Conversation.  Looking to get unstuck from your inner critic's never-ending loop or just get clarity on what you really want. People can use change to reinforce what they really want if they set aside space and time to get real.  
Sign up here for a 60-minute complimentary conversation.  No sales pitches, no strings attached, just service.

3. Find out exactly how you are holding yourself back:  Energy Leadership Index for those who want an in-depth right now (I call it the short cut to self-awareness).  Includes a 1-hour debrief after completing the 30-minute online assessment.  Read more about it 
here and contact me as I will offer it at-cost to SWE SCE members. ($99) 

As Brene Brown notes, "Asking for help is a power move" so reach out to your SWE community!  That's what we are here for.

Invention Convention Needs ~1000 Judges

Invention Convention needs SWE's help!  All of their judging has moved online for this year's U.S. Nationals competition.  They need ~1000 judges.
 
58% of their young inventors are girls and they want to excite them towards taking part in SWENext programs. So there is a lot to be said for SWE members engaging locally as well as nationally.  Invention Convention's existing partnership info with SWE can be found here: 
https://inventionconvention.org/swe
 
The time commitment is ~2 hours of judging and a 90 minute required training session before judging begins.   There are 4 choices of training sessions from May 4th to May 30th.
 
Their website for info and signing up is here:  
https://inventionconvention.org/us_nationals/judging/
 
All judges will be asked to judge a minimum of eight inventions between June 3rd and June 14th which equates to approximately 2 hours or less of a time commitment. You may choose to judge more than 8 inventions if you have more time available.
