Upward Resources – 2020

by | May 5, 2020 | General


In order to get the maximum benefit out of each Upward session, you will need to complete a “pre-work” assignment. Each month the assignment will be posted here. Some assignments must be turned in to Momentum. Others are prep-work for the class and should be printed, completed, and added to your binder. Specific instructions will be given for each assignment.


March Session

April Session

Learning and Development “Selfies”: Understand Your Purpose and Take Control of Your Career Development

Facilitator: Dawn Burke

The concept of “career” has changed dramatically in the modern workplace. Careers are no longer a lifetime pursuit of one distinct career path, but rather a pursuit of many talents, skills and roles, resulting in more fulfilling work.

In this interactive session you’ll learn:

  • What research teaches us about the importance of continuous career development
  • How to create a written career development plan incorporating “purpose” in your planning
  • How to overcome obstacles and accelerate your career development

Recorded ZOOM Session (Dawn’s content starts at 19:00 min)
