“Overcoming our shortcomings” presented by Melissa Gear
January 14, 2015
11:30 a.m.
Rock Valley College, WTC141

This will be a discussion on not letting our shortcoming (information or skills we currently do not possess) be our undoing. Melissa will touch on situations where we may not have all the information or skills needed to complete a project and how we can take steps to overcome this shortcoming without completely stressing out. We will also talk about how these shortcomings can help us in the future. Even if it looks like a hassle, then their potential outcome could benefit us behind their initial scope.
