Young Leader Meeting
DEC Young Leader Series: Quarter-Life Career Crisis: Survive & Thrive!
About This Meeting
DEC Young Leaders enjoyed a late afternoon meeting on April 21, 2016 with Dr. Keith Pretty, President & CEO, and Beth Bryce, Director of Career Advancement, both of Northwood University. The sold-out meeting was held at Northwood University’s Troy Center.
Dr. Pretty kicked off the program titled “Quarter-Life Career Crisis: Survive & Thrive” by sharing his career path and the importance of a mentor at each of his jobs. He encouraged YLs, as he does with each of his graduates, to “go make a difference”.
Beth Bryce helped YLs explore the questions: Am I in the correct field and where is my path leading? Her remarks covered the stages of a quarter-life career crisis, tips to survive and strategies to thrive. Beth encouraged YLs to take steps with their exploration phase to create an inventory of where they need assistance, come up with one small action and set a deadline.
After the program, YLs enjoyed networking with Keith and Beth where they continued discussions about their careers.
