    There are some big issues that can derail or stall your job search – ageism, extended time in transition, regime changes, and bad business breakups. None of these are insurmountable, but you will need some strategies and tactics to navigate around them.

    Our presenter will be Catherine Morgan, a career transition expert who is not afraid to identify elephants in the room or poke sacred cows. This talk will be filled with strategies her clients have used successfully for the past 12 years.

    Bring your questions! We’ll have plenty of time to explore your specific challenges.

    Wednesday, September 28 at noon Eastern / 11 AM Central. REGISTER HERE

    BIO

    Catherine Morgan is a career transition expert and the founder of Point A to Point B Transitions Inc., named Career Transition Coaching Service of the Year, as part of the Corporate LiveWire Innovation & Excellence Awards 2022 and 2021, and Most Innovative Career Transition Coach – North America, as part of Corporate Coaching and Recruitment Awards 2021 by Corporate Vision. The company is a virtual provider of coaching services to professionals in career transition and solo consultants. Catherine is the author of the eBook Re-Launch You: Discovering Your Point B and Embracing Possibility (www.re-launch-you.com).

    Given the uncertainty around the pandemic and the economy, Catherine created an online course to give people strategies for feeling more in control and dialing down anxiety www.idialdown.com.

    An experienced independent consultant who was employed by three of the former Big Five consulting firms, Catherine combines job search strategy development with accountability. Catherine speaks frequently on topics related to productivity, career transition, and entrepreneurship. She doesn’t take herself seriously, but takes her subject matter very seriously. 

    Recommendation for this talk:

    Our Career Management Ministry engaged Catherine to address a network of Job Searchers. Her speaking topic was: Navigating Around Four Potholes in Job Search. This tackled some of the sensitive challenges that can derail or stall a job search – ageism, extended time in transition, regime changes, and bad business breakups. Catherine dug into these difficult topics in a very constructive way and was able to establish a genuine connection with our audience. The people attending were all Job Searchers of a wide range of ages and from diverse career backgrounds. It was a crowd of relative strangers who were looking for help. Catherine achieved two extraordinary things: 1. She put everyone at ease enough to open up and ask questions to the point of personal storytelling, which made for a very rich experience. 2. Everything she did was wrapped around a message of Hope. I could feel the energy in the audience as they discussed ways that her ideas could be actionable in a personal way for each of them. Isn’t this exactly what everyone wants from a speaker? It is not about the talk but about the action that is generated by the talk. Catherine understands this and can deliver on it. I strongly recommend her to help with you or your organization.

    Re-Launch You: Career Transition Tactics and Tools – Webinar 9/14 


    Warning: preg_match_all(): Compilation failed: invalid range in character class at offset 7 in /homepages/23/d339537987/htdocs/ec/wp-content/themes/p2/inc/mentions.php on line 77

    Whether being laid off or participating in the Great Resignation / Great Reshuffling, losing your job can take a toll on your emotional and physical well-being. It is completely normal to experience every emotion on the spectrum.

    However, this is also a great opportunity to step back and thoughtfully evaluate what you have done in the past, and what you would like to do in the future. It is a time to take inventory of what situations worked – and didn’t work – for you. It is a time to reconnect with your values and goals.

    In this talk we will explore:

    • How to determine your right next step
    • How to keep yourself out of the emotional dips
    • Why mindset is as important as tactics
    • How to navigate around the potholes of age, salary, extended time in transition, etc.
    • How to stay focused and on track with your job search

    This talk will help you see how career transition can be a time of opportunity and possibility, and why fortune favors the bold. Bring your questions!

    Evolving Working Ep 6: HR and Mental Health in the Workplace with Dawn Ellery 


    Warning: preg_match_all(): Compilation failed: invalid range in character class at offset 7 in /homepages/23/d339537987/htdocs/ec/wp-content/themes/p2/inc/mentions.php on line 77

    How do we create a safe workplace where people feel comfortable talking about personal struggles and mental health? There are no easy answers, but the pandemic forced companies to consider the mental health of workers because it was obvious people weren’t doing well. Dawn Ellery, CEBS, is a mental health and well-being champion, speaker, and Human Resources Total Rewards leader working to reduce the stigma around mental health, and open eyes to the complete person walking into work.

    In this episode of Evolving Working, career transition expert Catherine Morgan and empowerment expert Susan Eckstein got a peek behind the HR curtain and learned:

    • Talking about mental health with another HR professional can be a difficult experience
    • Some professionals would rather be performance managed out than talk about their ugly divorce or abusive home environment
    • Managers aren’t trained on how to have these kinds of difficult conversations
    • Sharing your personal challenges and history of depression with a group who knows you can lead to 30% of the people asking for help or information

    Companies have become accustomed to supporting employees with physical health benefits and financial knowledge and training. Mental health is the next step. There is substantial ROI for investing in high-quality mental health programs, with an added bonus of decreased turnover and increased productivity.

    Evolving Working Ep 5: Board-ready Women and the ROI of Diversity with Heather H. Bennett 


    Warning: preg_match_all(): Compilation failed: invalid range in character class at offset 7 in /homepages/23/d339537987/htdocs/ec/wp-content/themes/p2/inc/mentions.php on line 77

    Women on boards and the importance of diversity and inclusion on boards is something we should be hearing more about. Multiple recent studies have shown that companies with at least two women on the board are more successful financially, and become employers of choice where people stay and build their career.

    In this episode, career transition expert Catherine Morgan and women’s empowerment expert Susan Eckstein talk with Heather H. Bennett, MBA, CDI.D. Bennett is a marketing strategist, qualified Board of Directors candidate, business and career coach, and bestselling author of Fun and Fulfilling Careers One Question at a Time, dedicated to helping organizations and professionals build strong careers, brands, and businesses. We talk about the mindset shift it can take to feel qualified to step into a leadership role. Even if you are completely qualified, you may not FEEL like you have everything you need.

    Eckstein and Bennett shared multiple examples of how women stepped up and took a seat at the board table.

    Evolving Working Ep 4: Living Your Values at Work with Angie Rome Gonzalez 


    Warning: preg_match_all(): Compilation failed: invalid range in character class at offset 7 in /homepages/23/d339537987/htdocs/ec/wp-content/themes/p2/inc/mentions.php on line 77

    Our values are uniquely ours. Sometimes we can identify them easily, and sometimes we need a little help. Knowing our values and finding work that aligns with our values is critical for happiness and job satisfaction. If you’re not sure what your values are, or what your right work situation is, there are techniques like mining for values that might help.

    In this episode of Evolving Working, Catherine Morgan and Susan Eckstein talk to Angie Rome Gonzalez about the importance of living your values at work. Gonzalez is a certified professional life coach through Coaches Training Institute who has been coaching clients for 16 years, and is currently partnering with Point A to Point B Transitions Inc. to serve clients more deeply.

    How do your values show up at work? If you like to build deep relationships with customers, you may not feel comfortable in a company with a transactional business model. Instead, you may prefer a company that builds deep relationships with customers and considers the lifetime value of a customer.

    It’s not a right or wrong thing, it’s just about alignment.

    • What stories you may be telling yourself (and how you can write a different story)
    • How to set boundaries at work with your boss and team
    • How to stop “shoulding” and “wronging” yourself
    • How to design a life that works for you

    How to ask for what you want In short, we don’t get what we don’t ask for.

    We Are 12 Going On 13

    I can’t believe it, but I am starting on year 13 of having my own business, Point A to Point B Transitions Inc.

    I won’t lie – it’s been a rocky road with some giant potholes and landmines, and while it sometimes feels like I have been doing this forever, some days it seems like a brand-new adventure.

    What has changed over the years? My confidence in getting great results for the clients I am meant to serve is unshakable. I am proud to share I have an enviable success rate of getting driven professionals back to work (even after years in transition).

    For better or for worse, I have always judged the success of the business by the results I get clients, and not on revenue.

    I have taken pro bono clients when I didn’t have enough revenue coming in because I knew I could help them and it seemed like bad karma not to help.

    I have taken time off when I was cooked, but really needed to be doing business development.

    I have invested in coaching or training when I didn’t have the money many times. Sometimes this worked out very well, and sometimes it was a total waste.

    I wouldn’t necessarily recommend anyone else do any of these.

    However, here are some things I would recommend:

    • Follow your curiosity – what is interesting or exciting?
    • Try to make things fun (yes, even the boring or scary things)
    • Connect with other entrepreneurs and support each other
    • Invest in yourself, but don’t use training as a block
    • Take a nap if you need it (you’ll be more productive later)
    • Interact with people who are further along than you are
    • Don’t be afraid to reach out to famous people
    • Refer clients who aren’t ideal for you to someone else

    The idea of being a solopreneur and digital nomad was incredibly appealing to me when I started. All of my personal stuff was in storage for years as I spent time in Chicago, Palm Springs, Los Angeles, and New York.

    Now, I find I get totally sparked by partnering with other professionals for webinars or media projects. When I partner with someone, I actually do the thing I was talking about because I won’t let them down AND I usually have to up my game because I know some super-smart people.

    Over the years I’ve learned to give myself permission to stop doing things that flat-line my energy or trigger anxiety, even if they can bring in revenue. I have mostly stopped doing resumes because I am tired of fighting with people. In some cases, I need to do a resume for a client (usually an entrepreneur to employee), but in many cases, I will refer the client to someone else and sleep better that night.

    In short, your business is YOURS, and you get to decide what you do and who you want to work with.

    That’s probably one of the reasons you started your business in the first place.
