Content includes recognizing the challenges of leading people, using planning/motivation to maintain control, identifying how to approach a variety of performance issues, exploring what motivates employees.
Navigating Challenging Relationships
The success of an organization is due in large part to the diversity of skills, talents and backgrounds of the people who come together to create a work group. This also means, of course, working with people who have different attitudes, habits and personalities which may be difficult to manage. Improve your interpersonal relationships and attend this session to examine your mindset and attitude, understand common personality types, identify strategies for dealing with varying personalities.
Pronouns Matter and Beyond!
The act of assuming about gender (even if correct) sends a potentially harmful message -- that people must look a certain way to demonstrate the gender that they are or are not. Using someone’s correct personal pronouns is a way to respect them and create an inclusive environment, just as using a person’s name can be a way to respect them. Let's talk about pronouns and how we can be more inclusive and dispel the notion that intersex, transgender, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming people do not or should not exist.
