Join us for an engaging in-person event at Platform Calgary on Thursday, February 15, 2023 at 12:00pm (MST) as part of the Thriving Minds: Empowering Innovators series. Collectively Tangled and Peer Guidance, in partnership with Platform Calgary, Innovate Calgary, and Rainforest Alberta, bring you the fifth session in a six-session series where we explore common challenges experienced by entrepreneurs and individuals working in the startup and innovation space.
In this participatory session, we’ll explore the challenges of showing up for others when you need some support yourself. In whatever capacity you lead, it can be hard to support others when your tank is empty. Whether you’re a founder, small business owner, manager of a team, or even a mentor for other professionals, we all experience times when we’re struggling ourselves, but still trying to show up for others.
Come connect with peers, chat through some of your experiences of leading when you’re not at your best, and learn how to better handle the challenges that entrepreneurship and the innovation ecosystem throw your way. As a participant, you'll walk away with an increased support system, an increased understanding of the support available within the community, and with access to tangible tools that you can utilize to work through these challenges.
Session attendees will have the opportunity to engage in one-on-one advising sessions with Peer Guidance mentors, who can further support with topics discussed each month, or can support with additional business/work-related concerns. Registration for advising sessions will be available on a first come, first served basis following the main event. Additional details provided at the session.
Don't miss this opportunity to learn from peers and gain tools to feel more confident in your place in innovation. Reserve your spot now for Session 5 of the Thriving Minds series!
