Transformative Tuesdays
, a new format for the annual spring career conference, hosted in partnership between Normandale Community College and the Minnesota Career Development  Association.
This past year has been one of transformation and transition for us all. To accommodate the many changes in work, life, and our world, we’re centering this spring’s professional development with the theme: "Transforming ourselves and those we serve, while learning to thrive through personal and professional transition."

Session 4: Thriving through Stress – Embracing the Power of a Growth Mindset  
Our thoughts have incredible power over our actions, next steps, and our futures. The great news is we can develop a growth mindset so we achieve our goal and inspire others to achieve theirs. Participants will learn how our brains are wired and how we can rewire the brain through awareness, practice, and targeted exercises. Participants will gain practical tips and tricks they can begin to use with clients and also personally. We all experience stress. A growth mindset helps us move through stress to success. 

Instead of a traditional full-day format, these virtual sessions will be:

  • Offered in 90-minute sessions 
  • Once a week on four consecutive Tuesdays 
  • Available to register for the full series, or simply choose one 
  • Contact Hours will be awarded
  • Recordings will be available for those who cannot attend live sessions
  • This conference is intended for career development professionals (GCDF, CCSP, career navigators, counselors, etc.)
  • If your employer has authorized payment for this class(es), please have them fill out this training authorization form and email it to
