Ms. Teresa P J Armstrong

Introduction to “Soft Skills” Leadership & Professional Development
Professional Derailment:  Lessons for Staying on Track

April 19, 2017 6:00pm Networking and Dinner, 7:00pm Lecture

Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory Building 1 (Lecture in Parsons Auditorium)

Teresa Armstrong 19 April 2017

Presentation: Once an engineer achieves technical skills they must also have other skills. The challenges and complexity we face in our professional lives and our organizations can be compounded by the lack of self-awareness and the reality that “soft skills” matter.  A “derailer” is a weakness that requires improvement if we are to realize our potential. The presenter will explore four categories of “derailers” that leaders and professionals risk in their career journey.   Walk away with an action plan on how you will integrate “soft skills” into your professional career tool kit. 

This action plan can be further developed and fine-tuned by attending the follow-on Workshop on Saturday, 22 April.
Space is Limited so Register Early (Separate Registration Required)

Speaker: Over the last 20 years Ms. Teresa Armstrong has presented this subject at various national conferences including the Women of Color (WOC) , Black Engineer of the Year Awards (BEYA), and National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE). Her current and past consulting/coaching clients include AHC Inc., Maryland Paving, Northrop Grumman Corporation, Marriott International, and the USO.

 

Advance Registration $20 for Members, $25 for Non-members, and Students Free. Payments received after April 16th, add $5.

In October 2016, a number of our members were interested in taking the SEP Exam offered by the INCOSE Washington Metro Area Chapter.  We supported our members by offering a free chartered bus for transportation to Virginia along with a light breakfast and lunch.

In response to interest expressed by our members to host an exam more local to our Chapter, we successfully arranged for the INCOSE Certification Program Manager, Ms. Courtney Wright, CSEP, to travel to the Baltimore area to support our members to administer this exam.

This paper-based SEP Certification Exam will be held on Saturday, May 20th at 9:30am -11:30am, arrival by 9:00am with valid ID matching the name on your registration.  This Exam is open to INCOSE members and non-members.  If you are not currently an INCOSE member and wish to join, please register as a member  Join INCOSE  

NOTE:  You may take this Exam without being a member of INCOSE.  However, once you pass the Exam,  you must become a member of INCOSE, and complete the Application Process with the required fees to formally submit an application for Certification.
