Actuaries are the experts at assessing and managing risk, but many actuaries are also risk averse when it comes to their careers.
  • Do you want more for your career but find resistance to the idea of taking more risk?
  • Do you have a more passive nature that holds you back?
  • Do you sometimes feel dismissed and overlooked?
  • Do you know you deep inside that if you were more confident, you would realize more success?
Success requires taking risks and moving out of your comfort zone. To do this, you need to develop a mental toughness like you've never had before. The #1 reason people don't succeed is that they get in their own way (self-sabotage!)

Past surveys by both the SOA and ACTEX have shown that employers and executives perceive a need for actuaries to improve both their leadership and communications skills.To fill this need, ACTEX is partnering with Dave Miller, a communications and leadership expert who is also an actuary himself, with this series of webinars.

In this webinar, you will discover:
  • Two principles that will help you to avoid self-sabotage,
  • The formula for developing mental toughness,
  • 3 techniques you can use every day to master your mindset,
  • How to position yourself so that you can boldly step out of your comfort zone and be more effective!
Instructor:

David C. Miller, FSA, MS, PCC is founder and CEO of Leadership Growth Strategies. He is an internationally-recognized human development expert specializing in sales, leadership and change management. He has developed and presented nearly 500 customized programs for organizations internationally on three different continents and has personally coached over 1,000 business professionals and corporate executives in over 75 different organizations.

Dave is author of The Influential Actuary, a book focused on helping actuaries develop the skills and strategies to be set apart in the way they communicate, influence and relate to others.

Lightbulb Did you miss it?

Did you miss this webinar? Wow! You may have missed a good one... But you donít have to miss it even though itís over -- because we recorded it for you!

Hear Dave Miller talk about the obstacles and challenges we create for ourselves. Challenges caused simply by what we think and believe about a situation. A self-defeating mindset is the #1 reason people donít realize their full potential and take advantage of the opportunities that can skyrocket their careers. For example, many of us have been too timid to speak-up at a meeting, deal with a conflict or take a risk that may advance our careers.

In this webinar, Dave explains specifically how this dynamic plays out in each one of us and gives three detailed strategies to overcome the fears that hold us back. It was a pleasure to hear Dave demonstrate these techniques by working real-time with our own President of ACTEX Learning, Stephen Camilli, FSA to overcome the thinking that has been preventing him from pursuing one of his biggest career goals. Youíve got to hear this for yourself!
