In this session we discuss the four common elelments for effective, long-term collaboration. We'll learn how to evaluate your current and past collaborative efforts, and how to create the optimal environment for future projects.
Networking at Work
How do you utilize your connections in the workplace? How can workplace relationships help you reach your career goals? When is it appropriate to utilize work relationships and when is it not? Do women build relationships differently than men? We will discuss these issues and others addressing the possibilities and limits of alliances and relationships at works.
Curbing Conflict in the Workplace
We’ll discuss the pervasive issue of interpersonal conflict at work and explore ways of dealing with it effectively using cognitive behavioral and emotional intelligence techniques.
Living Your Values at Work
How are our personal core values expressed or challenged at work? In this session we’ll complete a short exercise to determine our individual core values, and discuss how recognize opportunities to utilize them at work. We’ll also look at ways to make healthy decisions when we feel our values are being challenged.
Values, Vision, and Misson: What are they, and why do they matter?
Why do you need a company mission statement? How do you really determine your core organizational values? Do employees really care if you have a vision statement? At this session we'll discuss what these terms really mean, why you need them, and how to develop them authentically. If you want your company to keep focused, on-track, and a great place to work, this session is a must!
Interviewing the Interviewer: Finding the Job you Want
Job interviews are not just a way to convince a potential employer that you’re the best fit for the position; they are your opportunity to decide whether the company, culture, and people are a good fit for you. In this session we’ll explore several ways to prepare for interviews that expand and go beyond conventional interview techniques.
Cultivating Positive Politics in Organizations
What comes to mind when you consider organizational politics? Do you think of backstabbing, gossip, and self-interest, or do you think of alliance building, interdependence, and trust? At its core, political power is the ability to influence behavior through understanding the forces that motivate people to act. The possibility of this power being misused is obvious even without the cautionary tales of corporate fraud and corruption that have plagued the news over past decades. So how do we cultivate moral political power? In this session we'll discuss ways to recognize the three types of political power, and how to cultivate ethical, values-based influence at work.
