March 20, 2019, 5:30-8pm | Collaborate More Effectively Workshop | LGBT Community Center MANDATORY

Do you know the “thinking preference” of your key stakeholders? How about your own? This interactive and fun training utilizes an assessment called the Neethling Brain Inventory (NBI), which gives participants key insights into how they, their colleagues, and their supervisor prefer to make decisions and communicate. Participants learn ways to adapt their approach in order to be more effective, avoid blind spots, and increase their capacity to innovate. The workshop will be led by Yaron Prywes, PhD.

April 10, 2019, 6-8:30pm | Mastering Difficult Conversations | Location TBD MANDATORY

Even when we’re surrounded with talented, likeable people, we can find ourselves occasionally annoyed or disappointed by the things they say or do. Sometimes the grievances are small and specific – a thoughtless comment or an unanswered email. Sometimes they’re bigger. Perhaps we fall into an argument that gets in the way of progress, or we work with someone who repeatedly fails to follow through on their commitments. When interpersonal tensions bubble to the surface like this, it’s unlikely that we can control the whole situation – we’re only one side of the equation after all. But if we can better understand the typical causes of “bad” behavior, we can be a lot smarter in how we choose to react – and that can make all the difference to our ability to reduce and resolve tense situations. This workshop will be led by Carrie Weaver and Kay McKean.
