Strategic Career Advantage Platform (S-CAP)

All events are held in the Bannister Glasshouse, unless otherwise noted.


Reinhardt University created a new certificate series in Fall 2016, known as the “Strategic Career Advantage Platform (S-CAP)." We had several successful sessions this fall including: the DISC personality profile, Mediation, Impression Management, and Listening. Our goal is to have about 20 students or more for each session. Reinhardt President Dr. Kina Mallard initiated the effort, and the program will be coordinated by Linda Breeden, SPHR, and Dr. Katherine Hyatt, dean of the McCamish School of Business. Participants will receive a certificate for each session attended. If students attend at least five sessions in an academic year, they also will receive a pin they can wear at graduation. The sessions will be held on Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

"Using Project Management in Everyday Life"

Tara Glover

Home Depot Support Services Manager at Masco HDSS

Topic Overview:

Life is not just about daily routines.  It’s not just about struggling to get everything accomplished.  It’s about setting goals and milestones and identifying the steps needed to get you from point A to point Z.  Family, school, and work should be enjoyed and not something to endure.  By utilizing tools such as time management and work breakdown structures you can help alleviate some of the stress and struggle that life can at times throw at you.  Project Management becomes Life Management.

About Tara Glover: Organized, detail-oriented, list maker and tasks slayer – those attributes make Tara’s world go round.  All of this control freakishness lends itself to Tara’s role as a certified Project Management Professional.

Tara is a native of Georgia and a fellow alumni of Reinhardt University.  She obtained her MBA from RU in 2012 and her PMP certification from the Project Management Institute in 2014.

Tara has over 20+ years in the Home Improvement industry utilizing her project management skills in areas of program and product development.  In her current role she is a key component of a strategic development team developing new and innovative systems to support the ongoing growth and analytical needs of Masco, Inc. and its business units such as Delta Faucets, Behr Paints, BrassCraft Plumbing to name a few.

When she’s not busy working or organizing the lives of family and friends she can be found hanging out with her husband and kids watching college football, cheering on her daughter at swim meets, or creating “honey-do” Pinterest lists for her home improvement projects.
