Navigate the Chaos @ NJCU School of Business, Auditorium
    Nov 20 @ 11:30 am – 2:00 pm

    Navigate the Chaos

    Socrates noted, “To know thyself is the beginning of wisdom.” How well do you know yourself?

    This seminar, Navigating the Chaos, very uniquely phrased by Dr. Edmondson, will challenge you to ask yourself questions in order to increase your self-awareness. Are you up for the challenge?

    Speaker(s): Dr. Michael Edmondson, Dean of Professional Education and Lifelong Learning (PELL) at New Jersey City University.

    About Dr. Edmondson: He has published four books with Business Experts Press: ‘Marketing Your Value: 9 Steps to Navigate Your Career’, ‘Major in Happiness: Debunking the College Major Fallacies’, ‘Success: Theory and Practice, and Strategic Thinking and Writing.’ His fifth book, The ‘Relevance of the Humanities to the 21st Century Workplace’ is will be published later this year. Dr. Edmondson has a BA from Cabrini University, an MA from Villanova University, and a Ph.D. from Temple University.

    We will go over:

    • The traits and habits of successful people
    • The relationship of self-awareness to success
    • The link between personal growth and professional development
    • Questions to ask yourself about how often you work towards your goals
    • and MORE!
