Melissa_Steach_100x100.jpgWhen we feel better, we work better. That’s one of many reasons it’s critical to consider human factors and ergonomics in workplace design. Be it your home, working co-op or a traditional business location – it is vital that the workplace take the whole human into consideration. An office that encourages movements large and small throughout the day, that allows us to initiate and regulate social interaction, and that takes into consideration factors like personal space, physical and psychological proximity, and territoriality helps us feel better. It improves our health, comfort, and connection. By providing an overview of physical, social, and cognitive ergonomics, this presentation will help participants understand, and even design if interested, workplaces that are healthier for themselves and their colleagues.

About the presenter: Melissa Steach, PhD(c), MA I-O Psychology, CEAS I

Melissa truly believes that work is a physical, cognitive, and social experience. Formally trained as a fine artist, she brings her understanding of aesthetics to the world of workplace wellbeing in her role at Herman Miller as a human factors and ergonomics specialist.

Deeply passionate about sharing the profound effect work environments have on employee experience and wellbeing, Melissa has presented on this topic at FUSE Design and Brand in London and Miami as well as at the OD Network national conference. She is also a best-selling author and recipient of the Emison Art Fellowship.

Melissa is proud to be a part of the Herman Miller legacy and commitment to the creation of cutting edge, effective, and beautiful workplace designs and environments through the use of human focused research.

With each passing day, we are continually expected to be more productive. When we don’t know the answer, we either Google it or go to the person (e.g. the thought leader) we think can give us the answer that’s contextually relevant to our situation.
 
Who do we turn to and why? Whether that person is inside or outside our organization, we expect a truthful answer we can internalize. We expect the person we turn to be authentic, transparent, and trustworthy. We expect our own personal thought leader. Shouldn’t you be that thought leader for someone else?
 
Come hear The AHA Guy Mitchell Levy, a Silicon Valley Thought Leader that’s seen and helped deploy and use technology in corporations for over a quarter of a century.

Key takeaways

Attendees will away with their own "Aha" moments while understanding why personal branding and thought leadership are essential components of today’s workforce and your long-term success.

Pivot: The Only Move that Matters Is Your Next One

Thursday, September 1, 2016 from 12:00-12:40 PM PT    (We'll also be giving away three copies of Jenny Blake's new book, 'Pivot'!)

Sign up for the FREE webinar!

Jenny_Blake_2016_100x100.jpgNo matter your age, life stage, bank account balance, or career level, you can learn how to pivot strategically into your next opportunity. Career change doesn’t have to be a crisis, and plateaus don’t have to be a problem. In fact, if change is the only constant, now more than ever as it relates to our economy, it behooves us all to get better at it.

Your best chance of success lies right under your feet. By doubling down on what is already working, you can cut through confusion and move more quickly in a new direction. Pivoting is a mindset and a skillset, and it is one we can all get better at. This workshop will resonate with anyone facing the question of what comes next by providing a methodical plan to move forward, one that you can cycle through as many times as necessary.

This interactive workshop focuses on Jenny’s Pivot Method, a 4-stage process that will teach you how to:

  • Identify your existing strengths, interests and experiences, and define your version of success.

  • Scan the horizon for new opportunities, skills, people and opportunities, without falling prey to analysis-paralysis or compare-and-despair.

  • Reduce risk by running small experiments that can provide feedback and help determine next steps in your career trajectory.

  • Launch with confidence, bolstered by the skills and methodology to adjust seamlessly and continuously as you move in your new direction.

About the presenter

Jenny Blake is an author, career and business strategist and international speaker who helps people organize their brain, move beyond burnout, and build sustainable, dynamic careers they love. Jenny is the author of PIVOT: The Only Move that Matters is Your Next One (Portfolio/Penguin Random House, September 2016), and Life After College (Running Press, 2011).

With over a decade blogging, two years at a technology start-up as the first employee, five years at Google on the Training and Career Development teams, and over five years of running her own business, Jenny combines her love of technology with her superpower of simplifying complexity to help clients through big transitions — often to pivot their career or business.

Today you can find her at JennyBlake.me, where she explores systems at the intersection of mind, body and business. Jenny is based in New York City, where she imagines she’s starring in a movie whenever she walks through its crowded streets. Check out the Pivot Podcast and follow her on Twitter @jenny_blake.
