FRIDAY AM: THE POWER GAME
To lead effectively, you need to master the "practical skill" of power and influence. Professor Bob Bies will explore how to play "the power game" effectively and successfully. He will focus on strategies and tactics of power and influence--and the savvy with which they are used. This session will be highly interactive, and it will require that you bring $5 (USD) to be part of the Power Game simulation. The session will, of course, include "movie clips" to illustrate key takeaway lessons from playing the power game.

NEW FRIDAY Evening: Professional Development Series
Join Carol Morley and get inspired to make the most of your "one wilde and precious life!" This event is an opportunity to consider your grandest career vision and concrete ways to realize it.
Have you ever said to yourself?:
"I don't know what I want to do when I grow up?"
"There are so many people that are better than I am,
I couldn't possibly compete."
"At this stage in my career, it's too late to switch."
"I don't have the luxury of doing what I love because I need to make money."
These beliefs and others like them are examples of career "rules" that may be limiting your opportunities to pursue a career you truly love. Recogonize the power you have to shape your own thoughts and learn powerful tools to identify and release limiting beliefs to forge a more fulfilling and successful career. In addition, expand your network and join other graduate students and alumni from Georgetown University McDonough School of Business, School of Foreign Service, Public Policy Institute, and School of Law.
