    • How would I know I’m good at …? How would it show up in my work?
    • Which capabilities would him me transition to do more …?

    - There will be three follow-on sessions. Join those sessions to discuss how to build your capabilities to implement what you learned in the conference.

    - These mentors can tell you what clients and leaders are looking for.

    - This is an example of what you could do in your own organization—and get recognition for bringing in such a great idea.
