Free COVID-19 APADRC Online Chinese Personal Development Workshop Series

Fundamentally, we’re all human, which means that we are similar. For example, we all cry when we’re upset, smile when we’re happy, and eat when we feel hungry. Why then, do we sometimes have a hard time getting along?

Presented by the APADRC, “Success in America: the Invisible Rules” is a virtual weekly Chinese workshop series aimed towards helping you break through the “bamboo ceiling” to achieve greater success in the United States. This is a free multi-part self-development program that seeks to illuminate some of the unspoken behavioral expectations that cause cultures to clash. 

If you’ve ever felt like you always seem to be an outsider no matter how hard you try to fit in, this workshop series is for you. RSVP below and prepare yourself for greater chances of success, regardless of whether that’s a higher salary, more popularity, recognition in the workplace, or more amicable personal relations.



由APADRC主办的“成功在美国: 无形的规则”系列 是一个线上的每周一讲的中文公益讲座。该系列讲座旨在帮助在美亚裔突破 “Bamboo Ceiling -竹子天花板”,在美国取得更大的成功。本系列讲座是公益免费的,能够自我提升的学习机会。讲座将会阐明一些容易导致文化冲突产生,却在美国社会中“不言而喻”的社交隐形规则。


Why do some people seem more successful than others? Is it because they’re more popular? Is it because they know the right people and have the right connections? Or, maybe you feel that others are more successful than you because they are smarter or work harder. The question is, what can you do about it? Join us on Monday for the first installment of our series: “Success in America: the Invisible Rules”

为什么有些人似乎比其他人更成功? 是因为他们更受欢迎吗?是因为他们认识合适的人,有好的人脉吗? 又或许你觉得别人比你更成功是因为他们更聪明或工作更努力。问题是,面对这些疑惑你能做什么呢? 加入我们周一开展的《成功美国的隐形规矩》系列线上公益讲座第一讲:《你死我活》

Words matter. They formulate our thoughts and allow us to verbalize our ideas. More significantly, words dictate intention, which permeates our actions. Words we see, speak, and hear have the ability to influence every part of our lives including both how we interact with others, as well as how others view us. Join us in this workshop and learn to be intentional, authentic, and present in your relationships! Become that relatable teammate who is always one step ahead!

言语对我们来说至关重要。其有形化了我们的思想,使我们能够用语言表达我们的想法。更重要的是,语言支配着意图,而意图渗透在我们的一举一动中。我们所看到、说到、听到的话语影响着生活的每一部分,包括我们如何与他人互动,以及他人如何看待我们。加入我们第八讲的公益讲座,学习如何在你的人际关系中呈现出更有意、真实的一面! 成为那个总是领先一步、值得信赖的队友!
