Description :Category : Digital Recordings

60 min – September 12, 2017 (Tuesday)
Panelists: Erin Justyna (Texas Tech University) and Lisa Laughter (University of California-Davis)

Ever had fear stand in the way of pursuing professional passion? Experienced self-doubt or insecurity about being "good enough?" Moved through days (or weeks, or years) in "default mode" rather than intentionally creating your best professional self? If you have ever answered "Yes" to any of these questions (or know someone who may have), then this presentation is for you! Erin Justyna (Texas Tech University) and Lisa Laughter (University of California-Davis) are convinced that when individuals become mindful and begin to design their professional identity, free from fear, they create new opportunities and purposeful pathways that lead to greater productivity and fulfillment. In this 60-minute, SLIDECAST (no video) presentation, Lisa and Erin discuss fear's unique ability to steal potential, stand in the way of dreams, and prevent us from living lives of intentionality and purpose. They address the pitfalls of living in fear and discuss how to "feel the fear and do it anyway." And they consider what it means to have a profession of advising as well as what it means to be a "professional" in the field.
