June Professional Development Event

Please join us for our June Professional Development Event with a presentation from  Abigail Wendt, one of our Section i Leadership Coaching Committee members.  Abigail will be presenting on June 2nd at the Wichita Water Center.  The presentation will consist of two separate topics – the first, “Creative Problem Solving” from 5:30pm to 6:30pm, and the second, “Succession Planning”, from 6:45pm to 7:45pm.  Please feel free to join us for one or both topics!  Attendance at the “Succession Planning” session is MANDATORY for all 2015-2016 Officers.
Creative Problem Solving – 5:30pm to 6:30pm

As engineers, every day we are faced with problems in our SWE activities, careers, and home lives. Solving problems defines us. But through the years we lose our childlike abilities to think outside the box as we are educated in the system. So coming up with new and better ideas that can be more effective and meet the ever-increasing demands of our organization is the real challenge. This session teaches 4 different creative problem solving techniques which will be applied and practiced to address some of the challenges we face in our SWE sections. Attendees will gain the ability to generate ideas for solutions that provide value or improves a situation.

Succession Planning – 6:45pm to 7:45pm
Do you know who your leaders will be next year? What about 5 years from now? We will walk your section leadership through the 8 step approach to succession planning. Create your section succession plan and put it into action.  MANDATORY ATTENDANCE FOR ALL 2015-2016 OFFICERS PLEASE!
