Develop the Leader Within
When leaders show a commitment to their teams' growth, employees are motivated to reciprocate, express their gratitude, or show loyalty by going the extra mile. Even if you aren't a leader in your current role, being able to identify with top leadership competencies will certainly help you develop as a professional, setting you up for a leadership role in the future.
Compassionate and Effective Communication
Successful communication begins with a genuine intention and a joy for being with the other person, which can often be challenging in a business environment. However, designing unique solutions and strategies through direct communication will expand opportunities, increase successful outcomes, and create a sense of enjoyment during any verbal exchange. A clear message, concise delivery, and a balance of empathy and compassion will dramatically improve and empower any communication, negotiation, or presentation. During this talk, participants will learn methods to teach teams how to reset their mindset for effective and respectful communication.
Conflict Management 101
Get ready for a deep dive into conflict. How does it arise and what triggers misunderstanding and disagreement? Through emotional intelligence – specifically awareness of others and oneself in relation to others – conflict can be alleviated and even avoided.
Self-Compassion in the Workplace and Beyond
Difficult moments are inevitable. (At least they’re inevitable if we want to live meaningful lives alongside other humans!) How we handle those difficult moments can be the difference between a downward spiral of isolation and self-blame, and a confident step toward the people and activities that can nourish and strengthen us in moving forward. This course includes an overview of what self-compassion is (and isn’t!), and why the research shows it’s important for personal health and successful relationships at home and at work. Self-Compassion is shown to be the primary determinant of burnout among physicians and other helping professionals, so we’ll talk about HOW to practice self-compassion in practical impactful ways in order to truly thrive.

Neurodivergent or Not: Communication Skills for All

This can sometimes lead to misunderstandings, hurt feelings, or conflicts between individuals, within teams, and even with our loved ones – all of which affect our productivity, work satisfaction, and overall wellbeing and happiness. Understanding ourselves and our communication strengths and challenges allows us to also understand others in a way that can build strong communication skills, no matter who we are communicating with.

How can feedback conversations shed light on unconscious bias and strengthen relationships across difference? Microaggressions are small, unintentional slights that undervalue or demean people. They are ubiquitous in interpersonal interactions and contribute to disengagement, dysfunction, and turnover. In the interest of fostering more cohesive teams, we can address microaggressions with brave conversations. Brave conversations are candid dialogues that at first may seem uncomfortable but ultimately build trust and effective collaboration. In this 60-minute session participants practice raising uncomfortable topics and skillfully receiving this kind of feedback with curiosity.

A team's ability to achieve unparalleled results (and contribute to the bottom line) is directly influenced by individual team members' ability to communicate and collaborate effectively. Discover how to bridge gaps across different work, communication, and behavior styles in order to create a team dynamic that is wired for success. The leader is responsible for setting the tone, but the team members are accountable for "showing up" in alignment with this tone each and every day. Put vision back into your team: remind them of why they come to work each day, inspire them to pour themselves into their roles with new gusto, and teach them the tools they need to work collaboratively, creatively, and with enthusiasm.
Addressing Mental Health Issues in the Workplace
Although mental health can often be a topic we rarely want to discuss, especially in the workplace, it appears employees are now advocating for their employers to invest in their mental health. But, due to stigma, employees often avoid disclosing mental health issues to their co-workers or managers due to fear of losing their job or damaging their reputation. However, the workplace environment can be one of the most important places to address mental health issues, as work is a major part of our lives, it is where we spend much of our time. In addition, it is vital more than ever for organizations to be aware of populations including BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, Persons of Color), women, LGBTQ+, who may be at a higher risk of developing mental health issues due to the unrelenting forces of discrimination. There are many effective actions organizations can take to promote mental health in the workplace. This session aims to increase awareness of the mental health experience among marginalized groups, improve ability to identify common behavioral and physical indicators of mental health issues, and enhance manager’s competency to help aid employees seeking and/or ways to increase access to mental health support through effective communication and behavioral strategies.

Helping as a Form of Leadership
What does it mean to be in a helping relationship with those you lead? Leaders help their people in many ways. They offer advice or wisdom from past experience; they roll up their sleeves and dive into the work itself; and they serve as collaborative partners, supporting their teams to solve problems for themselves. This 60-minute session prompts participants to consider someone they support (at work or beyond) and assess their ability to help based on five competencies of a helping relationship: authenticity, security in self, empathy, eliminating perceived threat, and compassion.
