Managing Yourself: A Journey to Self-Mastery - In Person April 21, May 5, and May 26

Friday, April 21, 2023
9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

The registration period has closed for this event.


Self-mastery is the ability to take control of your own life and begins with developing your self-awareness. It allows you to recognize and understand your thought process, habits and behaviors. It is therefore a choice; the way in which you choose to interact within the world, at work and in our personal lives. Join us for a new interactive, three-part course, available to non-supervisory employees.



Course Dates:

  • April 21st, 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. (Part 1)
  • May 5th, 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. (Part 2)
  • May 26th, 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. (Part 3)




There is a registration fee of $75.00 to cover the costs for assessments and reading material. Supervisory approval is required prior to registration. Course is open to non-supervisors only and limited space is available.


Nicole Vaughn is the Professional Development and Assessments Manager for the Division of Human Resources, in the Office of Organizational and Professional Development. She is a MBTI, DiSC and FIRO-B certified practitioner.
