The Office of Alumni Relations, in collaboration with Alumni Learning Consortium, invites you to participate in a webinar featuring Elayne Fluker, author and founder of SiS Academy, on Thursday, February 3 at noon.

For many of us—across various cultures, identities, and experiences—asking for support may be thought of as a sign of weakness or incompetence. As a result, we often struggle through challenges alone, which leads to stress and feeling stuck. However, the opposite is true when it comes to leadership and a true display of confidence. The willingness to ask for and accept support is the key to success, fulfillment, and peace of mind.

During this empowering webinar, facilitator Elayne Fluker will:
  • Uncover limiting beliefs and blind spots you may have about support
  • Demonstrate how these beliefs and blindspots may be holding you back at work and in life
  • Teach strategies to get the H.E.L.P.™ that allows you to stress less and accomplish more
  • Explain Elayne’s 5 Rs of Making an Empowered Ask™ to build your support networks and get meaningful results
