We are in a world that’s changing rapidly. New technologies and processes are disrupting all aspects of society, and will continue to have profound effects on the careers and peace of mind of those who have come to depend on outdated paradigms. As the pressure builds for us to remain ahead of each new wave, we must design strategies that allow us to thrive amidst the growing uncertainty we all face – Who will be the “winners” and “losers”? How can we prepare ourselves to be beneficiaries of change? How can we build an internal system that allows us to sustain the ability to thrive during the current changes we see, and the future unknown changes we will encounter?


In this three-part series, we will focus on how we can take control of our lives, careers, and well-being by being our own best coach. By the end, participants will have the tools to conquer the elusive combination of ambition and contentment. Please note that while this is a three-part series, each part is independent and may be taken individually.


Join us on March 9, May 11, and July 20 at 4:30 PM ET!

This three-part career series is sponsored
by CFA Society Los Angeles and CFA Society Washington, DC.
Please register for each session individually.

Part 1: Define Inside Out Success
March 9, 2022 from 4:30 – 6 PM ET


In our first session, we will establish a stronger foundation for success by defining our individual value systems, which is the origin of our deepest desires, whether we realize it or not. In so doing, we will have the tools to remain mindful and centered as we navigate a sea of distractions. You will be able to take away:

  • An understanding of our current state of living in a VUCA world
  • Overview of Locus of Control, and how it impacts our ability to thrive through change
  • The outsized benefits to coaching yourself, and why it matters more in volatile times
  • A tangible understanding of your most important Personal Values

With this, you will have the foundation needed to be able to thrive through change. Specifically, you will be able to better understand the context of the world we’re in right now, know that you have a lot more power than you think to tilt the scales in your favor, and personal values that can enable you to have tangible language to make decisions with.

July 20 from 4:30 – 6 PM ET
In our third and final session, we will identify actionable ways for you to surf the inevitable ups and downs of your journey toward achieving holistic success. Getting to where you want to go isn’t easy. The destination sometimes changes with material new information, and there will be inevitable setbacks. In this part, we will discuss the process of coaching yourself to get unstuck so you can sustain your upward trajectory. At the end of this session you will take away:
  • The patterns that prevent us from reaching our most desired goals
  • The mindset shifts needed to go from preventing us from achieving our goals to promoting our ability to achieving our goals
  • The 5 steps to coaching yourself through any situation
