Barbara Safani of Career Solvers facilitated an excellent session, Setting Goals for 2012: For You, Your Business & Your Clients, at the Joint Transition/Coaching SIG Meeting on February 23. Participants had diverse backgrounds, experience, and expectations for the session and Barbara satisfied them all through her depth of knowledge and her manner of engaging participants. She shared her extensive career coaching experience and recommended relevant websites, organizations, and resources to address the needs of the group, whether in transition, working with clients, or growing a business. She discussed goal setting, emphasized the importance of relationships, and made recommendations for getting the most out of social media.
Barbara stated that potential employers are less concerned about a candidate's age than whether or not they're relevant - candidates are advised to demonstrate relevancy. There was a discussion of various assessments and types of certification and participants offered their own recommendations for resources they have found helpful. All in all, a terrific session with a dynamic presenter and engaged participants.
