Webinar: Biting the Hands that Feed Us

12:00 PM to 1:00 PM

Food waste, hunger, inhumane livestock conditions, and disappearing fish stocks—these are exactly the kind of issues we expect food regulations to combat. Baylen J. Linnekin (SESP ’01), author of Biting the Hands that Feed Us (Island Press 2016), introduces readers to the perverse causes and consequences of many of today’s food laws. This webinar will be of particular interest to people who are tired of partisan bickering and who care about food, sustainability, public policy, law, and regulation. Learn More

Webinar: Leading Yourself and Others Through Change

12:00 PM to 1:00 PM

Change is inevitable. Successful professionals must navigate unforeseen challenges and opportunities to succeed in their roles. In this webinar, you’ll learn tools to confidently work through uncertain and challenging situations in order to adapt to change in creative and unexpected ways. You’ll learn how to use the improvisational idea of “Yes, And” to co-create new processes and practice reacting to new situations with little or no preparation time. Overall, you will learn how to practice “bouncing back” from failure to learn from new and uncomfortable professional situations where some level of imperfection is inevitable.

While those are extremely important qualities to have, studies have shown that soft skills are even more important in leadership than the hard skills we have grown accustomed to. While hard skills will get you the job, it's the soft skills that will get you to the top.
