Communication Skills Workshop
October 3, 2011
Reviews of Laura Katen's first presentation were so good that we decided to bring her back for a longer session in order to take a deeper dive into optimizing workplace communication, how we present ourselves, and how others perceive us. The session was fun and interactive and featured role-playing exercises. Other topics Laura covered include how to be a confident presenter and how to be an effective listener.

April 21, 2011
The Marist Professional Women's Mentor Program kicked off its "Lunch and Learn" series on April 21, 2011 with a presentation by MPWMP participants Melissa Lulay and Jennifer Unterbrink. The topic of their talk was the quarter-life crisis, whether it's a myth or reality, and how it affects new professionals. As the Millennials start to enter their 20s and 30s, there is increased awareness of the identity crisis they may experience. Given from the point of view of new professionals, this program explored characteristics of the quarter-life crisis, challenges Millennials may face, and advice for those who supervise and/or advise them.

This event marked the second year of the Marist Professional Women's Mentor Program. The luncheon included a welcome by College President Dennis Murray, reflections from pilot participants, and a keynote address by local business owner Ellyn Enisman.
Excerpts From Keynote Address:
"Many people often think that in order to be a mentor you must be in a high-powered career on the fast track, and if they're not, they have nothing to offer. This is one of the greatest myths."
"The real power of mentoring is in the relationship. In fact, mentoring IS the relationship."
"Most people think of the mentor/mentee relationship as: mentor as teacher and mentee as learner. What I want to share with you from my experience is that whatever role you enter the relationship in, you will end up being both mentor and mentee. I have learned some of the most powerful lessons from my mentees."
"I would urge you to think in terms of investment instead of time, and promise that this program will have a profound effect on all the relationships in your life."
- Ellyn Enisman, Founder of EKS Consultants, Inc.
