When life doesn’t go exactly as you planned and you experience rejection, it is easy to lose confidence in yourself and your abilities. With the disruptions Covid-19 has caused, most are reeling from unplanned bumps in the road. If you are wondering what to do next in finding a job, finding a better job, or changing career direction, now is the time to dig deep, show resilience, reignite self-belief, rediscover self-worth, and wake up the winner that dwells deep inside. As we discuss self-doubt turning into self-esteem, we are not advocating just thinking positive thoughts. Positivity is a part of building a successful career, but right thoughts must turn into right actions.

• Increase charisma and confidence in six easy steps
• Live with positive expectation every day of your life

• Give yourself the benefit of the doubt when you make human mistakes
• Turn rejection or life’s unexpected twists into lessons that move you forward Karla Brandau is a leading authority on leadership for a more collaborative and productive workforce.

|The Hidden Science of "Dream Teams"||18||11||2020||12:00 p.m.||1||3||Virtual||
Despite all the adages about "synergy" and two heads being better than one, human groups usually get slower and have more problems the larger they get—especially when they're made up of people with diverse ideas and communication styles. And yet some teams do manage to truly become more than the sum of their parts. What makes the difference? Journalist and explorer Shane Snow, author of the #1 business bestseller "Dream Teams", will present the counter-intuitive answers—and some juicy stories from science and history.
Shane Snow is an award-winning entrepreneur, explorer, and journalist who has helped expose gun traffickers and government corruption, explored abandoned buildings and sewers around the world, eaten only ice cream for weeks in the name of science, and taught hundreds of thousands of people to work better through his books, including the #1 business bestseller "Dream Teams".
Snow speaks globally about innovation and human behavior, has performed comedy on Broadway, and has been in the running for the Pulitzer Prize for investigative journalism.
