    Veterans' Authentic Career Workshop

    Veterans_Authentic_Career_Workshop.pngWe are delighted that CDR & Lone Star Veterans Association have again partnered to launch the initial Veterans' Authentic Career Workshop of 2017 - helping Veterans to zero in on their true key strengths to align with their career and educational plans.   This year's initial training session will be at Lone Star Veterans Association's Houston location on June 28th, 2017.   This is part of the "Vets Coaching Vets" initiative. The program includes:
    • CDR 3-D Suite (Character, Risk and Drivers & Rewards Assessments) 
    • Half day Authentic Career Workshop for Veterans
    • Participating Veterans will be matched with a CDR Certified Executive Coach for full debrief of CDR 3-D Suite and then for career planning review after attending the Workshop on 3/9. 
    By attending this personalized career program, Veteran participants will leave being able to hone in on their key inherent strengths, gifts and needs to help them to make sure that their career pursuits are in line with their authentic talent and motivational interests.  Many of the current career transition programs for Veterans use styles inventories.  Instead, CDR provides a deep dive into one's authentic talent to a nuanced level for a clear and accurate career fit.
     
    We invite companies and other interested organizations to join forces with us to make a real difference in helping Veterans to accelerate their career success and satisfaction.

    Body Language Class

    Body_Language_Class.png

     

    Nonverbal communication makes up the majority of our overall communication. At a very minimum, up to 60% of what we are saying is comes from our body language, facial expressions, and vocal tone. In this workshop we will focus on the fundamentals of body language and why you should highly start to consider it as an optimized tool to use.

    What you will learn if you attend:

    Why the very first seconds and ANY interaction are the most important

    • What’s in a handshake?
    • How to use your hands purposefully

    What to do with your body

    • Understanding your space and others’
    • How to orient your body so that it’s authentic and respectful

    A great leadership quality to have is the ability to listen

    • Two small, simple tricks that can get people talk more
    • Show empathy while actively listening

    Veteran Spouses Social

    Affinity_Group_5-17.png

    We are beginning 2017 with a new Affinity Group within LSVA, an At Home Spouse group. LSVA works because all of our members have a shared military experience that makes it easier to talk openly about the good and bad things in our lives. Our military and veteran spouses need the same opportunity to gather and discuss what is going on in their lives with others who are living those experiences now, or have in the past. These are kid friendly events that will allow parents to get out of the house, let the kids burn off some energy with other kids, and be able to relax with other parents.

    We will also have a Facebook group for the members to join and continue the conversation outside of the event. In order to join that private group you will need to attend the event or contact rebecca.escobedo@lonestarveterans.org.

    LGBT Veterans Social

    LSVA_HH.png

     

    Lone Star Veterans Association's mission is to build the community of post-9/11 veterans through fun, positive, and inclusive events. Due to responses from member surveys over the past two years and the lack of current events targeting the LGBT community we are re-launching our LGBT Veterans social in 2017. This will be a monthly event for our veterans that have proudly served. 

     

    We have also created a closed Facebook group in order to allow this Affinity Group to effectively communicate between events.
