Career Power Lunch

Career Power Lunch will have an impact on the way you view and manage your work, your career, and your life. Career Power Lunch helps you think introspectively about your current position and how your personal goals fit in with your career goals. You’ll learn more about Lehigh’s programs and you’ll gain practical skills in vital career development areas.

  • Some of the programs involve preparatory work before the workshop so that participants can get the most out of the session. The goal is for you to better develop your own career road map and the tools necessary to follow the path.

  • You can register for the whole series at once or select those that are of most interest to you. Lunch is provided.

Real Time Coaching for Employees

Real Time Coaching for employees is available by appointment on the first and third Fridays of the month. This is an opportunity to talk to an HR representative about where you are in your work life, avenues for professional growth, your career interests, and more. If you’re a supervisor, this is also a chance to discuss professional development for your staff. Take time to uncover your obstacles and opportunities. 

Career Coaching for Managers

This two part workshop provides managers with ways to grow and retain key talent through professional development and career management. Supervisors will learn to support team members and address current and future staffing needs. Attendance of both sessions is strongly recommended. Lunch will be provided.
