Consciousness and Communication
Event is Full: Accepting Wait List Registrations
'No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.' This quote from Albert Einstein illustrates the underlying issues that often impede effective and productive communication in the workplace. This workshop will focus on counterproductive thought processes, unconscious power dynamics, and how to recognize and defuse them. This session will also examine how to use the power of language to change negative thought habits. Please bring your questions and join us for an interactive presentation.

Getting Things Done
Does your “to do” list often feel out of control? Are you searching for better ways to manage the constant flow of incoming emails, requests, meetings and interruptions, while still finding time for projects or other important (but less urgent) work? Whether you are seeking new techniques for getting organized or managing workflow, or looking to enhance existing systems, this workshop is for you! Based on methods and principles in David Allen's best-selling book 'Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity,' this interactive two-part workshop will introduce you to a process for staying in control, and will help you customize and apply the concepts to work for you in whatever job you do. Participants must attend both sessions. Session 1: Tuesday, October 13, 2015, 9:00 AM - 11:30 AM Session 2: Tuesday, October 27, 2015, 9:00 AM- 10:30 AM

High Performance Project Management
This is a general overview of project management fundamentals. We look at a variety of techniques for project success, including process, tools, and human factors. We also examine some of the more common challenges encountered by project managers, and useful strategies to deal with them. This course does not address detailed use of project management software, although we touch on major classes of applications and when they may, or may not, be useful.

Managing Uncertainty
Managing Uncertainty: Project Success With Less Stress We explore the challenges posed by uncertainty in its many forms, and participants can expect to leave with a conceptual framework and specific methods to manage uncertainty in their projects with increased confidence. This workshop is intended for project managers and others who find themselves leading moderate to complex projects of any type - research, administrative, technology, etc. The class format will involve significant interactive discussion and participants should come with a personal project example, which could be past, current, or upcoming. NOTE: If a participant is unable to attend and does not notify the Office of Human Resources at least 48 hours in advance, their department will be charged $25 per missed session.

Coping with Challenging People
Are your friends and loved ones sick of hearing you rant and rave about 'you know who?' Do you experience panic attacks as you walk closer and closer to your office? Does your mother or father-in law know what's best for your child? We encounter difficult people at home, the workplace, parent-teacher meetings, retail stores, or just about anywhere. The inability to cope with difficult people often leads to resentment, frustration, and misunderstanding. The degree to which we are affected depends on our self-esteem, ability to recognize “hot buttons”, and effectiveness of communication skills. In this highly-energized workshop, participants will learn effective coping strategies based on a specific model that can build positive relationships with difficult people.
