Managing Transitions – Workshop Series
This four session “pilot” program comes to an end on Saturday, April 27th. We look forward to offering it again once we have completed a total assessment of the program. GROW is deeply grateful to Dr. Peggy Osbourn, PhD, Educational Psychologist & Career Counselor, and Ms. Stephanie Tamborello, BA, MRE, Leadership Development Consultant for their dedication and outstanding presentations.
Here’s what one of our participants said about the series.
Many thanks for letting me be part of your pilot program. It was meant to be for me and just at a great time!
I recently had the good fortune to take part in Peggy Osbourne and Stephanie Tamborello’s new class for women, Managing Transitions – Creating The Life YOU Want. As we all know, there are many books, many classes, many how-to’s about moving ahead and getting what you want out of your life. So the concept of transitioning from one stage in life into another is not new. What is new and refreshing in Managing Transitions – Creating The Life YOU Want is the honest and realistic approach Peggy and Stephanie take in presenting the class.
By joining together not only their education and expertise on the subject, they bring their individual talents and passions together to encourage and guide the student to take the next step in their desired transition. The emphasis is on YOU and through their love for what you’re doing in their lives they provide a wealth of knowledge that drives the workshop to a place that benefits the student greatly. I completely recommend this workshop for anyone who is on the cusp of desiring a positive shift in their life.”
