The most successful, happy and fulfilled individuals and leaders are the most self-aware. Being able to adapt to change, and being resilient, are critical to your happiness.
These messages served as the core of a career workshop featuring Vicki Sandler, an Arizona alumnus and former CEO of APS Energy Services, where she empowered students to be proactive about their lives and careers.
The workshop gave students a chance to learn how they can live and work with meaning and joy.
One student described the workshop quite eloquently in her blog...
"Vicki Sandler, the woman who spoke and lead this seminar, made her audience reevaluate their aspirations in order to better align, "who you are with what you do." She shared her three step process to help everyone become their own CEO--"Chief Energy Officer," that is--and tools to help manage their lives." Click here to read her entire review of the session.
Special thanks to Matt Noble, Co-Founder of Greek Ladders, Rochyl Windham, Gamma Alpha Omega Sorority President and, of course, the star of the evening, Vicki Sandler. All are pictured in the photo.
