Founder, Project LEAP.
The session will require active participation of audience. We will begin my exploring the initial phases of a psychologist role, the confusion and the ideas around success, job tasks and choosing a stream. I will speak about my personal journey talking about my move from India and how the field looked like to an outsider.
We then move onto trying to reach our highest potential, a search for purpose and identity and how it all is impacted by what our clients do. I will discuss how these topics need to be more internalized within the field and how this very internalization can lead us to the C-suite.
We then open the conversation for a debate between the need, benefit and achievement of a C-suite role for psychologists and what is stopping us to achieve it.
– Understand why inter-disciplinary approach is critical to success of the field
– Debate on the need for a C-suite title and see in real-time how many people will put themselves forward for the position
-evaluate the impact of psychologist role within the field and on the outside world
