Please join the Wharton Retail Network and Robert Friedland, Certified Professional Coach, for an in depth discussion of how to personally and professionally evolve your skills and strengths in this rapidly changing world of retail.
As the world of retail dramatically changes and you shelter in place, socially distancing, you may find yourself feeling disconnected or wondering whether your skills and experience will be as valued in this new rapidly evolving business environment. Perhaps you are wondering how to keep your edge in terms of your skill set or feeling that you would like to transfer your skills to another industry? Or do you want to stay in retail and add to your current responsibilities.
As an experienced executive recruiter and Certified Professional Coach Robert Friedland has:
  • Recruited hundreds of senior finance, sales, operations and investment professionals
  • Coached executives on developing and executing an effective career transition strategy
  • Worked with C-level executives on honing their communication, leadership and team building skills
  • Helped companies improve their ability to attract, develop and retain high-performing employees.

Robert’s discussion will include:
  •   How to identify and use your transferable skills to drive your transition
  •   Understanding the 5 stages of career transition
  •   Actions you can take now to network more effectively
This will be a small roundtable working discussion. Seats are very limited.
