21st Century Career Management: How Can you Lead Others if You cannot Lead Yourself
September 13, 2018 @
Work is changing at fundamental levels: where we work, how we work, who we work with (human or machine). There are a multitude of opinions about the number of jobs we will have, the amount of hours in a work week, and the type of people we will lead in the future. Given these changes, how do we stay relevant in our careers, and as leaders? How do we navigate these changes? How do we balance our life and work? This can all feel overwhelming, but it can also bring great opportunity.
We must re-frame our thinking, and look at ourselves and our careers as a journey, and as something worth personal investment. The key to the journey is to transition from striving for work/life “balance,” to “integrating” the two. This requires us to think in terms of experiences and not just titles. Integration means putting life at the center, and making work one of several inputs. It means making deliberate choices that integrate family, work and community.
During this session, Al Chiaradonna will share his unique perspective on the evolution of work, what that means to you, and tips on how to navigate your own integrated journey of personal and professional growth. The session will provide guidance on how to manage your own career while also offering a framework that will allow you to take action, and begin your own journey towards thriving as leaders and individuals.
Al Chiaradonna is a family man. He is a father first, a husband second, and builds a fun and exciting career third. Al is an executive at SEI and an Adjunct Professor at the Villanova Business School, teaching executive leadership. He also runs their executive coaching program. Al authors a blog called Front and Centered, which focuses on the integration of life and work. Education has changed his life. He gives back to the education community by sitting on several academic boards and advisory committees. Al is a graduate of Temple University, holds a CPA, and also has his MBA from the Harvard Business School. A frequent speaker on this subject, Al has even given a TEDx talk where he speaks passionately about the importance of work-life integration.
