Agenda:

This is a joint meeting with the Lehigh Valley Business Executive Networking Meeting.

Topic: "Finding a Fit, Not Just a Job"

Speaker: Theresa Hummel-Krallinger

Presentation:
Job seekers are increasingly being asked to illustrate their transferable skills and how they fit into the corporate culture of prospective employers. By understanding your own preferences, and comparing them to the needs of the employer, you are more likely to find a “fit.”

So how do you assess your own style? Or the style of the employer?

Fortunately, you don’t need an advanced degree in organizational psychology to figure this out. There are clues to look for and questions you can ask that will help you determine that information.

Attend this program to learn how!

By attending this session, you will learn:
- How to identify your primary behavior style
- How to determine the culture of an organization (not just what’s on their web page!)
- Factors that determine the primary organizational style (and whether or not you are a fit)
- Resources for identifying good places to work (and those that are not so good)

Speaker’s bio:
Theresa Hummel-Krallinger is a well-respected senior training professional and performance consultant, but it is her work as a humorist and motivational speaker that sets her apart.

Known for her lively and interactive presentation style, she is a frequently requested speaker on workplace communications. Her experience as a professional stand-up comedian enables her to add fun and humor to her consulting and training work.

No stranger to the corporate world, Theresa brings over 25 years practical business experience. She has held executive leadership roles in both the financial services and pharmaceutical industries. She is highly regarded for her ability to help organizations put in place meaningful performance enhancement processes that improve employee engagement and achieve financial results.

She is also the Past President of the Greater Philadelphia Chapter of ATD (Association for Training & Development) – formerly ASTD – and is the Past President for a local club of Toastmasters International.
