Life coach Ginny Hronek will help RIT faculty be more career self-directed at the Evolving Your Career: Managing Transitions workshop held Feb. 5.

A new workshop presented by life coach Ginny Hronek will help RIT faculty plan for and manage opportunities and obstacles in their careers.

The workshop, titled Evolving Your Career: Managing Transitions, is from 10 a.m. to noon Feb. 5 in the Bamboo Room, Campus Center. The event, hosted by The Wallace Center, is open to all RIT faculty. Lunch will be provided at 11:30 a.m.

Through the workshop, Hronek aims to teach faculty how to be highly career self-directed when facing career challenges and transitions. Participants will create a customized career guide through exercises that lay a blueprint for their professional lives.

“Regardless of where you are in your career journey, this workshop will help you make the most of it,” said Lynn Wild, associate provost for faculty development and The Wallace Center. “We want people at RIT to be proactive and embrace the different opportunities and changes that come their way.”

Ginny Hronek, a certified life coach and trainer, will bring her years of experience in public service, higher education, faculty development, training and coaching to her presentation. She will show participants how to plan for and manage opportunities and obstacles, through career mapping, goal setting, decision-making and selecting mentors and advisors.

“I think this workshop is important for people to take some time for career reflection and projection,” said Hronek. “I hope people will walk away with some tools to take control of their career development and contributions to higher education.”

Registration is required for the workshop and seats are limited. To register for the event, go to rit.edu/ghsSA. Registration closes at 5 p.m. Jan. 29.
