You, Inc.: Building Your Life's Development Plan

We all spend enough time thinking about the next feature and its development plan. Days, months, and sometimes years go by working on things that are a priority for our team and company. But how much time do we spend on discovering what is crucial for us and our own development? We can give more when we are at our best. This is not limited to career aspirations, but also applies to work-life balance, as it takes a family and a team to make anyone successful. Aprajita Mathur will work with you in a live session to build your own development plan. She will discuss six strategies that have helped her maintain the course of her career and personal life through happy, hard, and dark times. You will be ready to use these strategies to not only be an awesome you, but also build development plans for your team and help them grow within and outside the organization.
