8:00a-8:30a - Sign In and Coffee

8:30a- 9:00a – Nicole Perrotta

Building Authentic & Fruitful Relationships in the Workplace

An authentic relationship is based on truth, respect and mutual trust. In the workplace, these qualities are essential for effective teamwork and healthy, professional relationships. In this workshop, administrators learn how to easily and authentically build these relationships and will also participate in a fun and interactive exercise to network with other administrators at the workshop.

9:00a – 10:45a – Lesa Sullins

Mastering The Art Of Listening: The Most Powerful Communication Tool

The lost art of listening may be one of the most powerful career enhancing tools that you can develop. In this fast-paced world of never ending distractions, it is harder than ever to remain focused and attentive. More often than not, your mind wonders to another subject just as some crucial information is being spoken. It can be frustrating for speakers and listeners alike to repeat information over and over again whether with words or endless email chains. With so much information overload, the critical details, action items and needed information are often lost, over-looked or just not heard.

11:00a-12:00p – Mike Renquist

Conflict... or What the Heck Just Happened? And How Can We Get it To Go Away? Part I

It seems inevitable, doesn’t it? Even when a surprise. Conflict. Why? What is it and what do we as humans do about it? We will explore several different sources of conflict in human interaction (values, personality, role, status, perception, etc.) and explore multiple understandings and strategies for resolving conflict. And along the way, we will take a look at stress and its avoidance in the workplace.

12:00p – 1:00 – Catered Lunch NOTE: If attendee has a special dietary requirement, please email nicole@solutionstraininggroup.com prior to April 12, 2017 with dietary restrictions.

1:00p-2:00p – Mike Renquist
