8:30 - 10:00 a.m | Emotional Intelligence in the Workplace - The 'Other Kind of Smart' | Fred Jacques, Ph.D.
In this interactive session we will explore the nature of Emotional Intelligence (EI) and its relationship with personal success in the workplace. Increasingly, EI is being identified as the key ‘differentiating factor’ that enables individuals to achieve a higher level of effectiveness in their role. Drawing on practical wisdom, recent research and insights from neuroscience the session will illustrate how emotions impact every aspect of our work as professionals.

Participants will explore how to enhance self-awareness, develop skills at empathy, build team emotional intelligence and foster a workplace culture and environment that maximizes engagement and builds resilience during times of change. There will be opportunities to share experiences, and to learn new conceptual models and practical approaches to bolster your ‘personal leadership tool kit’ through experiential exercises and videos that allow us to ‘learn from the experts’. The session will serve to de-mystify EI and bring it into the realm of our everyday practice as focused and intentional professionals.

8:30 - 10:00 a.m. | Dirty Data in Excel and Sheets: Transforming your Data into Information | Melissa P Esquibel, MCT
The amount of data you’re getting isn’t decreasing. In fact, there’s more and more of it from more and more sources. And, isn’t it funny how none of these sources can agree on how it should look? This is a date 5/31/2020, but so is this 5.31.2020, isn’t it? Well that depends on what you want your spreadsheet packages to do with it. Attend this half-day workshop and load up your tool box with techniques, formulas and strategies that will have you slinging data like a pro and delivering the kind of insightful reports they are clamoring for. No matter your skill level, there will be something for everyone at every skill level.

Learning Objectives:

  • Know how to set yourself up for success when you set up your spreadsheets in Excel and Sheets
  • Discover the built-in tools that can help you break apart mashed together data items
  • Uncover the secrets of Power Query (and why it only sounds hard!)
  • Learn how to leverage dates and times to get more information from your data
  • How to repeat success with workbooks that work all year long without tedious modifications
