Williamsburg YPT Training Schedule

April 11, 1:00-5:00

Building Self Awareness

Description: Have you ever worked for an ineffective leader? Have you ever had a colleague that everyone found difficult? If so, you know that one of the characteristics of ineffective professionals is that they are clueless about how they are impacting others. They don’t know that they are the ones making the work more complicated. Your goal is to be a professional who is self-aware, who understands how to take in feedback in order to grow and who knows accurately your strengths as well as your weaknesses. In this workshop we will examine the key components of self-awareness and how to build yours for maximum effectiveness.


  • Identify the key components of self-awareness

  • Explore the challenges inherent in taking in feedback

  • Learn steps for increasing your self-awareness as you progress in your career

April 12, 9:00-4:00

Building Professional Credibility

Description: Credibility is the quality of being trusted or believed in. As a young professional or someone new in the industry, gaining credibility with supervisors and peers has to be one of your top priorities. How do you do it? What behaviors will ensure that others trust you, see you as competent and believe that you have great value to offer the team? In this workshop we will look at the elements that build credibility and some of the challenges in doing so.


  • Identify the components of credibility

  • Explore credibility components in detail, assessing how strong you are in them currently

  • Identify challenges young professionals must overcome to build credibility and the skills necessary
