July 30 | 10:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m. | PLV
Time management is more than just managing time. It is about controlling the use of the most valuable and under-valued, resource. This program provides individuals with tools and techniques to identify individual time management goals, explore time management tools and techniques, and develop individual action plans for addressing barriers to time management.
Addressing Emotions at Work
August 8 | 10:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m. | PLV
Directed emotions can motivate, inspire, and add positive intensity to our work. When strong emotions leave our control, or "run away," our personal productivity and the productivity of others suffers. Key relationships in are damaged, making it even harder to maintain necessary focus. Individuals who take the initiative to stay on top of their own emotional reactions and help others to do the same have a positive impact on productivity, relationships, the overall atmosphere of the workplace, and their personal well-being.
Providing Constructive Feedback
August 21 | 10:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m. | NYC
Providing constructive feedback not only helps solve immediate issues, but can also prevent potential problems that can ultimately have a negative impact on your department and greater environment. At the end of this workshop, participants will have an enhanced understanding of proper feedback approaches, techniques, and will be able to evaluate their current effectiveness when providing feedback to others.
