Kick-off Event for all Mentors and Mentees is May 5, 2020
Year 1 Curriculum
All Year 1 Ms Moxxie groups have the same curriculum. Each group meets once every three weeks from 8:00 AM to 9:30 AM.
Workshop 1 - Executive Bio / Personal Branding
An introduction of the program will include writing a professional bio and sharing what we hope to get out of the program. Learn to brand yourself in a positive, professional way.
Workshop 2 - The Art of Networking
Networking has become a critical element for growing a career and/or business. Many are intimidated and challenged with how to make networking a productive effort. In this session, we work with the Mentees to design their own custom commercial and teach effective networking practices.
Workshop 3 - DISC 1: Understanding and Working with Different Personalities
Understanding how “you are wired’ and what makes others respond to your conversations and actions is a critical skill in the work environment. We examine your personality and provide insight into why some interactions are successful and others struggle, and what you can do about it to insure that an interaction will proceed smoothly.
Workshop 4 – DISC 2: Understanding and Working with Different Personalities
Deeper delve into understanding and working with people.
Workshop 5 - Difficult Conversations
Everyone deals with difficult conversations – whether it's negotiating for a raise, requesting a promotion, resigning your position, or just dealing with a difficult peer or manager. We discuss various scenarios and how to manage those conversations for better outcomes.
Workshop 6 - Nego-SHE-ate Skills
Women are notoriously deficient in this skill. During this workshop we role-play in order to see how we react to certain negotiating tactics, and how to develop a few of our own.
Workshop 7 — Stand & Deliver: Define and Refine Your Presentation Skills
Every successful professional has to make a presentation at some time in their careers. We take some of the fear out by practicing our skills in front of each other, and then giving and taking friendly critiques.
Workshop 8 - Leadership and Attentive Listening
There are so many characteristics of leadership - but not all great leaders encompass thbe an em all. Learn which traits you can cultivate within yourself so others view you as a leader. Attetive listening involves listening with all senses. As well as giving full attention to the speaker, it is important that an "active listener" is also "seen" to be listening. Learn how to be an active, attendtive and reflective listener.
