Be Your Own Hero: Leveling Up Personally & Professionally
Nerd For A Living’s Wendy Buske & Adron Buske will be presenting this motivating, goal setting exercise which encourages participants to create a “leveled-up” version of themselves as a roadmap to future success.
Instead of emulating an idol or mentor, whose career path they are unlikely to duplicate, participants construct an accomplished yet realistic future self to use as their measurement of success. Using special “character sheets” that track skills, professions, and goals, participants will compare and contrast their present and future selves to highlight their strengths, expose their weaknesses, and map personal goals.
Using familiar gaming concepts from tabletop and video game RPGs, this entertaining session combines interactive fun with personal reflection, producing a useful takeaway to keep attendees motivated long afterward.
About Super Heroines, Etc.
Super Heroines, Etc. (SHE) is a 501c3 nonprofit focused on empowering women through educational events, classes, and workshops. As nerd and geek communities – like the tech field, comic conventions, and social media – are increasingly becoming hostile to women, SHE provides safe spaces for women through their mission to foster a women-focused community of nerds to learn, be creative, and gain confidence.
SHE does not discriminate against individuals on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, disability, age, genetic information, veteran status, ancestry, or national or ethnic origin. All are welcome! They ask that everyone is respectful and welcoming of all who join the group. Though they are female focused, men are welcome to join the group.
