Why the What’s Important to Me NOW?  workshop?

I’ve delivered it live in Victoria it to hundreds of people and the online version of this workshop has been accessed by people around the world to help them get clarity of their priorities when making significant life decisions.

Enjoy the sense of accountability that comes from sharing your plans with Sue and significantly increase your probability of following through on your actions.

Networking for Success in Victoria (Includes a 1-on-1 strategy session)

Register with Eventbrite NOW

This workshop is perfect for newcomers and local residents who want to develop their networking skills.

If you’re between jobs, or want to look for new opportunities, or simply want to make new friends in Victoria, networking is a critical skill, yet many people have a strong aversion to the concept of networking. They may think it means being “salesy” or ‘fake” and yet it doesn’t have to be that way. It can be especially difficult for those of us who are introverts. I’ll share my Ultimate Action Plan to help you to show up at networking events in a confident and authentic way. It will reduce your stress and change your perception of networking and you may find yourself looking forward to networking events rather than dreading them. I’ll even give you tips for dealing with someone who is a little too pushy about promoting themselves or a product or service they provide.

If you’re looking for work in Victoria, networking is essential. You’ve probably heard of the unpublished job market, where up to 50% of the job opportunities in a city are never advertised – in Victoria it’s more like 80-90%. Most positions are filled by word of mouth referrals and you’ll want to network to meet other people and uncover unpublished opportunities that could be perfect for you.

This two and a half hour workshop will give you the tools and confidence to become a more effective networker, even if you’ve never done it before. If you’re a newcomer, you may also find you make some good connections with local residents at the workshop and I’ll unlock the secret to the many and varied organizations, places and events in Victoria where you can network.

In addition to the workshop, you’ll enjoy a 1-on-1 telephone strategy session with your workshop leader to help you refine your 30 second introduction and zero in on the best places for you to network based on your goals.

Previous participants have shared that they enjoyed the open friendly environment, the small group format, the concrete handouts, resources and information and the authenticity of the workshop leader.

Here’s what Shkendie Kaba, Founder and Owner of Kaba Immigration Services had to say about her experience:

“Sue’s enthusiastic and passionate style made the whole experience exceptionally uplifting and motivating. She was so generous with her knowledge and practical tips on networking for success. The tools and resources she shared with us were beyond my expectations and I started using them right away.”

If you have questions, please call Sue at 778-265-6880 or via email at SueMaitland@shaw,ca and she’ll help you decide if this would be a beneficial event for you attend.

If you’re a newcomer to Victoria, consider also attending Sue’s free monthly information session “An Insiders Guide to Moving to Victoria” or request a complimentary “Welcome to Victoria” phone call.

Mini Self-Care Retreat

Eventbrite - Mini Self-Care Retreat
If you’re a busy professional woman, give yourself permission to take an evening off and discover why practicing self-care is so important for you AND everyone else in your life. Learn why so many women don’t make taking care of themselves a priority and the impact this has on themselves and others.

Experience a 90 minute self-care workshop where you’ll take time to appreciate some of the qualities that make you special and leave with a plan to integrate more self-care into your life.

There will be some sharing, though this is purely optional. The key focus of this seminar is to create a space for you to do some thinking about what practicing more self-care could look like for you.

At 7:00 pm we’ll all retire to a special table set aside just for us in the McKenzie Lounge, at the Union Club for a delicious buffet supper that is included in the retreat price of only $74.50. Enjoying supper together will provide a wonderful opportunity to connect and get to know each other better.

The overwhelming feedback from participants in the Mini Self-Care Retreat is that they would recommend it to others and here’s what a recent participant, Deb Alcadinho had to say:

“Sue Maitland guides women in a 90 minute self-care workshop encompassing brainstorming, awareness and enlightenment. I had the pleasure of attending one of Sue’s recent workshops and found it extremely worthwhile. As a busy professional, it’s challenging to find time for myself but Sue brought to light some interesting things to ponder and an awareness of self that I had not previously taken the time to do. Thank you Sue for a great 90 minutes, followed by an scrumptious dinner at the Union Club. Highly recommended! ”

10 Tips for more JOY and Less STRESS This Holiday Season

Christmas BoxThe Holidays can be a wonderful time of year when we take time to celebrate all that we have and the spirit of the season often encourages us to give to others less fortunate than ourselves.

However, along with all those wonderful feelings can also come a great deal of stress. There’s so much planning and preparation and social events to attend and of course the traditions that can sometimes become more of a burden than a joy.

 Follow my 10 tips and you’ll experience more JOY and less STRESS this Holiday Season

  1. Remember that YOU are Important – it’s so easy to focus on making sure everyone else is having a good time that you may forget to take care of yourself. Remember this is YOUR holiday too – put yourself in the mix.
  2. Make a Plan – make a list of everything that has to be done as early as possible and add target dates for completion
  3. Invite Others to Help – share the list with everyone who participates in your Holiday Celebration and invite them to pick a number of things off the list that they will take care of
  4. Don’t Strive for Perfection – if others are helping, understand that they might do things a little differently than you would and commit to being OK with that – it’s not about perfection – it’s about having fun!
  5. Don’t Get Hung Up on Tradition – if a family tradition is a lot of work for you and you don’t love doing it, invite someone else to do it or suggest an alternative that could work for you
  6. Put a Limit on Spending – set a $ amount for all gifts and stick to it. If someone wants a bigger gift, let 2 or 3 family members club together to buy it. Ask people to provide a wish list that fits the budget.
  7. Find a Way to Give Back – whether you volunteer at a shelter, donate to a food bank, buy a hen or a goat for a family in Africa or invite a recently widowed neighbour in for a drink or a meal, take time to honour what we’re celebrating at this time of year.
  8. Eliminate Non-Essentials – send cards only to people who are really important to you and who you know will appreciate them, consider going out to eat rather than cooking a huge meal, or make it a pot luck meal where everyone contributes something
  9. Build FUN into Your Plans – ask everyone to pick a fun activity that they would love to do over the Holiday Period and add each of their activities to your plan.
  10. BREATHE & Take Mini-Breaks – this is especially important if you’re feeling overwhelmed or if there is any family tension in the air. Step outside and take a moment to unwind and just breathe – you’ll be practicing self-care and able to show up as your best self for others when you do this.

Wishing you and those you care about a wonderful Holiday Season 

                                                    Sue Maitland                                                                                          Life & Career Transitions Coach                                               suemaitland@shaw.ca    778-265-6880   www.suemaitland.com

If you know you’re facing a BIG personal or professional transition in the coming year, consider booking a complimentary consultation with Sue to share your vision and learn why working with a coach can reduce your stress and support you finding the CLARITY and MOTIVATION to achieve your goals.

Connect with Sue and make this your BEST year ever.
