Thursdays with ThirdPath – Free Monthly Live Podcasts

This year’s webinar theme: Work and Life – The “New Ideal Employee”

In a world that is going fast and faster, our desire to live an integrated life helps us develop a unique set of skills that benefit our own lives and the organizations we work for. ThirdPath would even argue, the “new ideal employee” is someone who is well skilled at integrating work and life. This year our Thursdays with ThirdPath season will explore these skills and learn from experts who can help us:

  • Think in new ways around how work gets done
  • Make sure people of all genders have plenty of time and energy to care for the people they love
  • Help leaders become role models and champions for work-life integration

Our free interactive live podcasts happen on the 2nd Thursday of every month from 1:00-2:00pm ET.
Register here. Or check out the YouTube recordings of our previous webinars below.
