An Innovative Career Approach: Harnessing AI & the Challenge Mindset

Join the Colorado Career Development Association as we team up with New Jersey and Louisiana CDA's to learn inventive approaches to career development. We will hear from two fantastic speakers about how artificial intelligence and the challenge mindset can enhance career development, taking time to collaboratively develop practical application from each keynote.  We will also be guided through intentional breakout sessions with professionals across Colorado, the East Coast, and the South, gathering ideas and perspective to bring back to work with us. 

*Attendees who are present for the entirety of the event will be eligible for 4 hours of continuing education credits granted by the National Career Development Association (NCDA). 

Morning Keynote & Workshop:
"Flip the Model: Innovation in Career Exploration"

Many students think they need to pick one job title, for the rest of their lives. Career services are helping these students to flip the model: they explore challenges they want to work on, instead of job titles to fit into. Discover how leading institutions are creating innovative activities to help students prepare for purposeful careers.

  • Learning outcome #1 Discover three examples of innovative career activities.
  • Learning outcome #2 Learn to ‘flip the model’ of career development.
  • Learning outcome #3 Acquire innovative, practical strategies to use with your students.

"ChatGPT for Career Coaches: Scale Up Your Coaching"

But ChatGPT is a chance to fundamentally reshape that equation, leveraging your existing coaching expertise in concert with this new technology to dramatically scale up your impact.

So join a former LinkedIn insider and ChatGPT power user to discover:

  • What ChatGPT can do for you - from helping your clientele find the perfect path to helping you work more effectively than ever
  • How to guide your audience in this evolving world - by understanding exactly what ChatGPT can do and what it can’t
  • A hands-on guide to making it work for you - via live demos, roleplays, and Q&A so you walk away with everything you need to leverage this powerful tool
