Professional and Interpersonal Skills - Upcoming Classes

Class Name

Why can't we all just get along? Wouldn't it be nice if everyone just really liked each other in your office and there was never any conflict? Unfortunately, that is not always the case. Conflict happens every day, and conflict, when handled correctly, can actually increase your creativity and your productivity. Understand the warning signs that conflict is coming and how to prevent it or decrease the impact. Learn to value the differences between team members and how to move to productive and positive outcomes. This course is designed for the training to stick by taking you through 3 sessions, 3 hours each which will allow you to learn, prepare, role play, implement then come back and learn more. You will finish the class with a framework you can use to address any future conflict, and help others address theirs.

Speaking effectively in business, educational, organizational or social settings involves communicating with clarity, purpose and confidence. This interactive course will help you become confident and engage your audience and, if you're like many people and dread public speaking, you'll learn techniques to help reduce anxiety or fear. We'll review communication elements, examine speech formats including short talks, ''elevator'' and impromptu speeches, long and short form presentations and discover how to handle various audiences, locations, audio/visual aids and props, limitations and surprises. The class includes exercises, writing/formatting, practice presentations and opportunities for you to learn what methods work for you. Techniques to build confidence in planning, preparing and preparing speeches will be studied and you will learn the process of how to take a speech concept from start to finish. The class is designed to be experiential and supportive. Materials and resources will be provided in class.
