"I attended a session on personal development for professional growth, and the presenter told the story of seeing the same angry woman every morning for weeks as she drove her daughter to school. They tried everything to make this woman smile, including wearing red noses. When they were about to give up, they saw the woman, and she was wearing a red nose. The gist of the story is you don’t know what people are going through or if you are making an impact, but keep the faith as you never know the impact you have on someone." — #PrincetonStaff member Jordan Tegtmeyer, pictured on the left.
Tegtmeyer and Eva Kubu (right) were in St. Louis last month for the NACE Management Leadership Institute (#NACEMLI ), a professional development opportunity offered to a small group of emerging leaders in #CareerServices from around the country.
Tegtmeyer, a senior associate director of information technology, finance, and assessment at @princetoncareer and a 2018 Donald Griffin ’23 Management Award recipient, used his grant to attend #NACEMLI . "It was the best professional development experience I have ever had," he said. "It allowed me to learn from industry leaders alongside high-performing peers. It also allowed me to dig deeper into the kind of leader I am and want to be."
Kubu, @princetoncareer director and a 2013 Griffin Award recipient, also used the award funding to attend #NACEMLI in the past. "This experience helped prepare me to become a Career Services director," she said. "Flash forward to 2018, and I was deeply honored to be invited to serve as a #NACEMLI faculty member and teach a strategic communications and marketing course to 75 new or aspiring career services directors. One of those aspiring leaders was my direct report, Jordan Tegtmeyer. It was so rewarding to be there together — and I was lucky to be part of this leadership journey!"
