Bringing Women Together to Educate & Empower One Another

This event is open to all women business professionals. We hope you will join us and empower other women in our business community.

Bring your business cards and make your next business connection all while you enjoy a delicious lunch. 

TOPIC: Jedi Mind Tricks for Work and Home

Category: Leadership, Sales, Customer Service, Personal Development

Have you ever started a conversation with someone that went downhill quickly and you didn’t know why it happened or how to get it back on track? What about dealing with an angry client who never seems to be satisfied? Or, how about that coworker that keeps saying “It’s fine” when we know it’s NOT!

During this interactive session, we will introduce a human behavior theory which can be used to establish better outcomes from initially challenging conversations. You will learn:

  • What emotional ego states you will encounter in discussions.
  • How to identify the ego states in yourself and the other party.
  • How to neutralize conflict and confrontation during the conversation.

Implementing what you learn during our session will lead to more productive, less emotional conversations in the workplace and beyond.

Guest Speaker: Cindy Jennings, Vice President of Carlton Staffing. 

As Vice President of Carlton Staffing, Cindy is responsible for recruiting, training and the professional development of internal sales and management team members. She has over 44 years of sales and management experience, 34 of those within the staffing industry experience (twenty-two of those with Carlton!) and has been recognized as an Outstanding Contributor to the Staffing Industry.

She is a past president of the Texas Association of Staffing and continues to serve on the Texas SHRM Legislative Advocacy committee. She is an active member of the American Staffing Association and serves as a mentor in their development program. She has presented programs on Legislative Advocacy and Transactional Analysis at SHRM chapters throughout Texas and has presented opinions on pending legislation in both Washington, DC and right here in Austin.

Cindy also volunteers with groups outside of her profession. Her service to others has been recognized by the Federation of Houston Professional Women who named her as a Woman of Excellence in 2019. In addition, Cindy currently serves as VP on the Board of The Professional Group and is a member of the Advisory Board for the University of Houston’s Bauer College of Business Customer Experience Program.

A Texas girl, born and raised in San Antonio, Cindy left home to study at Aquinas College in Grand Rapids, Michigan, returning to Texas to complete her Bachelor of Science in Aquatic Biology at UT Austin. After graduation, she did research on atherosclerosis cardiac disease at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio and was published in the Journal of Pathology. You can thank Cindy and her team for determining the fact that one glass of red wine daily raises your HDL – the “good” cholesterol.
