A resume can be a powerful tool, but there is often a disconnect between what a job candidate thinks is being communicated on their resume and how hiring managers interpret the information being presented. This results in companies missing out on hiring some great talent, and job seekers missing out on excellent opportunities. In this Uplift Kitsap, professional resume writer Tina Callison helps bridge that gap by identifying places on a resume where disconnect happens and exploring how both job candidates and hiring managers can improve their use of resumes.

Difficult conversations often arise when we make assumptions before we even talk to the other person. This can lead to frustration, avoidance, intimidation, toxicity in relationships, and so much more. In this session, Shannon Bruce, Certified Conversational Intelligence® Coach, will take the insight from our May 19 session on Mastering Fear using the Conversational Dashboard and show how our assumptions impact our ability to relate to others while diminishing our capabilities to work well together. Using the Ladder of Conclusion tool, you will learn how to check your assumptions and elevate the quality of your conversations, decreasing stress and improving your relationships with yourself and others.

During this online session, Shannon Bruce will talk about the foundation of Conversational Intelligence® (C-IQ) using the Conversational Dashboard. This will help to set context for what’s happening in and around us when we are in fear/distrust versus calm/trust. This approach is about applying the concepts of C-IQ to our “inner conversation” to help us navigate uncertainty using our whole brain, not just being run by our amygdala.
