CURRENT

Programming is targeted at ages 21-40 but everyone is welcome to attend. UW-Green Bay has a Corporate Membership and encourages your participation.

UW-Green Bay employees and students pay the ‘member’ price (instead of the ‘nonmember’ price) when attending Current events. If you try to register online for a Current event, and the ‘nonmember’ price displays (instead of the ‘member’ price), please complete the online enrollment process at the following link. Even though UW-Green Bay is a corporate member, Current’s database detects price based on individual membership, so this step may be necessary for the ‘member’ pricing to display.

To apply for membership, please copy and paste the URL below into your browser:

Boys and Girls Club Professional Clothing Drive

The Teens 2 Work program through the Boys and Girls Club is a program that prepares young adults for the working world. In this program kids learn to write resumes, perform mock interviews, and learn the do’s and don’ts of employment. The program needs your help in supplying professional clothing for its young participants.

Please bring any new or gently used professional clothing including shirts, pants, ties, belts and shoes to this event.

CURRENT: Destination: Dignity Lunch n’ Learn

Destination: Dignity Lunch n’ Learn presented by Joe Kiedinger
Tuesday, February 23, 2016
11:00 AM to 1:00 PM
Click HERE to Register

This event is coordinated and hosted by Current, the Greater Green Bay Chamber’s young professionals group targeting individuals age 21-40.

Destination: Dignity

Would you like to be the leader you wish your leader was?

Did you know that we get treated in life the way we teach people to treat us?

Would you like to openly communicate better with your co-workers?

Attendees will reflect on the difference between dignity and respect. Servant Leadership strives to understand and dignify people for what they do because of who they are. Joe’s story with his own family, particularly his teenage son Alex, moves audiences in a thoughtful, meaningful way. As well as makes them laugh, because life’s kind of funny! His stories of family and corporate life will bring joy to the room.

Build a Business and Build a Life through Servant Leadership

The premise is simple: Raise your company or department like you would raise a family: strict but fair, treat each person as unique and celebrate individual victories. Attendees will leave with the most powerful Servant Leadership question a person could ask – a life-changing question. A question that is at the heart of all Servant Leaders and can heal and build up relationships.

About the Speaker

Kiedinger_Joe150

Joe Kiedinger
Brander-In-Chief
Prophit Marketing, Inc.

When starting his own advertising agency, J. Kiedinger Advertising, Joe realized that he didn’t understand the true ingredients of great marketing. His first real effort at a grand opening failed, wasting tens of thousands of his client’s money. Fortunately for Joe, that client was rooted in the Servant Leadership philosophy.

Joe spent years interviewing and learning from great companies – local, national and international. Through this he identified the seven key ingredients to building a successful business. He calls this seven-staged system the Prophit Marketing System. The system worked so well that he changed the name of company to Prophit Marketing – combining the historical prophet (his journey of learning from others) with making a profit. The companies he researched through his interviews all had these seven key ingredients. Along the journey he realized that these same elements, when rooted in a Servant Leadership framework, serve people in their personal life as well. Rooted in everything he learned was the realization that interpersonal relationships are the key to growing a successful life and business.

Joe began studying Servant Leadership as the essence of great leadership, as well as great parenting. The realization that running a successful business is no different that running a successful household was the motivation of creating the world’s first interpersonal connection tool called the About Me Card. Joe’s online About Me Card system helps build relationships quickly.

It’s this message of dignity that motivates and inspires Joe every day to spread the word with his story telling and his knack for performance. Joe was a performer on a cruise ship in his younger years and he uses his talents to entertain and inspire through workshops and speaking engagements.

Joe and his wife Danica own several businesses in the Green Bay area, have four wonderful children, and a dog Harvey.

CURRENT: Emotional Intelligence Lunch n’Learn

Emotional Intelligence Lunch n’ Learn presented by Steven F. Baue
Tuesday, January 19, 2016
11:00 AM to 1:00 PM
Click HERE to Register

This event is coordinated and hosted by Current, the Greater Green Bay Chamber’s young professionals group targeting individuals age 21-40.

Emotional Intelligence

Why do smart people fail?  Why do technically brilliant individuals often have trouble managing others or struggle when working in a team?  It’s not because they lack intelligence or technical skills.  What they lack is a critical level of Emotional Intelligence (EQ): the ability to express and manage your emotions while being able to understand and respond to the emotions of others.  Research suggests that EQ is one of the strongest predictors of performance, accounting for almost 60% of success in all types of jobs.  In this session participants will not only learn how a high EQ provides a strong foundation for successful relationships in both our professional and personal lives, but steps they can take to improve their EQ.
