Effective Business Writing
Event is Full: Accepting Wait List Registrations
Writing can be enjoyable if you know how to get started and how to organize your thoughts. In this four-part series, participants will learn to organize the basic components of letters, e-mail, and reports. We will discuss targeting our audience and creating clear, concise, and direct writing and instructions that will positively influence our readers. We will also practice writing in active voice and will learn to avoid dangling our participles and misplacing our modifiers! May we suggest participating in Beyond Typos to develop helpful skills and vocabulary before taking this workshop.

Consciousness and Communication
'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 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.
