WiAP Webinar: Transitioning to a new position and planning your succession
DATE: Thursday, October 24, 2019
TIME: 9 a.m. EST
Increasing Connections, the Women in African Power (WiAP) webinar series, aims to share knowledge and build the professional skills of women active in Africa’s energy sector.
The webinar will explore effective techniques to strengthen the skill sets of participants, to best cope with their transitioning into a new position. This process entails a series of elements, which both includes managing emotions of excitement from starting a new position to guilt of leaving colleagues behind. Moreover, transitioning to a new position also brings the desire to ensure one’s legacy is sustained in time at a company or organization you are leaving; a process which may include identifying and bringing up a successor for your old position.
In addition to this session, you are invited to apply to participate in a virtual one-on-one coaching session to further develop this professional skill. To apply, please fill out this form by 17 October, 2019.
