Networking Tip: Sit With People You Don’t Know

USC Price School of Public Policy is Exhibiting at L.A.’s Largest Mixer

LA-Mixer-2014- BannerThe Executive Master of Leadership (EML) program is uniquely tailored to working professionals who are looking to earn their degree as they continue to progress in their career. The 28-unit curriculum (seven classes) is comprised of four core courses and three electives. The core courses are completed over a 14-month period in an intensive format. The three electives may be taken during the same 14-month period or after completing the core classes, thereby making it a two-year program. The core classes are offered in an intensive format, which is highly interactive and is designed to accommodate the scheduling demands of working professionals. Each four-unit course meets for eight full days that are scheduled around weekends, typically in two or three blocks per semester, that meet approximately four weeks apart.

PrintThe EML program was developed as a 21st century degree that addresses emerging leadership challenges across the public sector, nonprofit organizations, and private industry. It is specifically designed for executives who have demonstrated leadership capabilities and who want to take their skills to the next level by making lasting contributions in their field, organization, or community.

The program structure offers participants insight into the mechanisms that facilitate effective personal and organizational networks, as well as collaborative problem solving strategies and practices. EML follows a cohort model whereby students enroll in the four required core courses together as a single learning unit or group and build on each other experiences through a degree curriculum that has three distinguishing features:

•          Transformational leadership that connects the public, private, and nonprofit sectors
•          An interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary problem-solving approach
•          A design to connect ethics with leadership through core values.

Should I Post? is Exhibiting at L.A.’s Largest Mixer

LA-Mixer-2014- Banner

Should I Post? Finally, a site that helps you answer the age old question.

Sip_white_logoYou’ve found yourself in a generation valuated by likes and retweets, comments and shares. Your lust for virtual engagement and attention has become so crucial that you’ve become “social” even on the toilet. You overshare and undercensor; which can at times be beautiful, and yet it has the potential to be regrettable and embarrassing.
Some things just aren’t meant to be shared. (Yeah, we’re talking to you.)

So who’s going to be there to strong-arm you into hitting delete now that you’ve moved out of your parent’s basement?

Should I Post? is.

Before you publish that boring, offensive, or blush-worthy post, run it through their filter. They’ll tell you which road to take and help get your digital clout back on solid ground.

You’ll thank them later.

Be sure to stop by shouldipost.com before you post!

Kids To Go Box is Exhibiting at L.A.’s Largest Mixer

LA-Mixer-2014- BannerGoing to the hospital can be scary for a child. YOU can help!

Every day, 1000’s of children are going to hospitals and pediatric care facilities to undergo chemotherapy, surgery, or receive treatments for chronic conditions.

logo_headerTo help every child through this transition, the Kids To Go Box® was created. It has proven to help ease a child’s stress and anxiety when transitioning to the hospital or pediatric care facility. These kid-friendly kits let children take their own belongings with them and personalize their experience, creating a sense of security and involvement.

For the first time, the Kids To Go Box® “GIVE BACK PROGRAM” lets you put these kits in the hands of kids that need them.

UntitledMany hospitals and pediatric care facilities that would like to offer these kits, aren’t able to afford them.

THAT’S WHERE YOU COME IN.

Kids To Go Box® created 3 “affordable” sponsor levels: Silver (Helps 48 children), Gold (Helps 120 children) and Platinum (helps 240 children). Now, ANY business can GIVE BACK and help local kids in local hospitals and local pediatric care facilities.

Each Kids To Go Box® that you sponsor will include your business name and logo, or Kids To Go Box® can add a hospital or pediatric care facility logo. They also include a crayon set and offer the option to include a coupon, brochure or promotional product with each box. You will receive a “Certificate of Appreciation” to proudly display, and DELIVERY IS INCLUDED to your choice of hospital, pediatric care facility or business throughout the U.S.

This program benefits Americans with Disabilities. All boxes are Made in USA and Eco-Friendly.
