Description: We professionals are programmed – by nature, by training, by experience – to act. We’re used to coming up with choices, making decisions quickly, and moving ahead.
But in many work situations there are a few issues that don’t lend themselves to quick action. They’re the gray cloud that follows us home from work: they’re complex and troubling, and often involve other people – colleagues or employees or bosses or customers -- so we put them on the back burner and hope they’ll somehow resolve themselves or just go away.
Participants in this workshop will explore how to approach such difficult issues collaboratively. The workshop offers not “problem-solving” – complex issues can’t be easily solved – but a concrete framework and process that can lead to useful action.

MIX (Management Ideas Exchange) is a free, lunchtime workshop series sponsored by the Center for New Leadership at Marlboro College. Directors and staff of mission-driven organizations are invited to join us for network opportunities, best practices in organizational success, and the exchange of ideas. With topics ranging from “Managing Organizational Change” to “Calming the Storm: De-escalating High-Heat Encounters,” these workshops build on the experience of participants to reach new horizons in professional efficacy. Each session will be presented by an instructor from one of the Marlboro graduate degrees in management, or by a local nonprofit, government, or business leader.
