Two Spring Workshops with Peter S. Adler, PhD

Sign up for one or both!

COHESION BUILDING AND 'THE GREAT GROUP'

Morning Workshop: 8:30am to 12:00pm

“Moments of growth and change are usually triggered by external competivie forces in the marketplace; shifts in the economy; or internal pressures arise from the quest for financial success and excellance," says Dr. Aldler. "Cohesion building requires bringing people together; keeping them together; and helping them produce tangible results. The process involves appropriate strategies, practical tools, and clear-headed methods that aggregate the highest wisdom of a group." This workshop is recommended for people who lead teams, manage departments, or must steer groups through turbulent times.

THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS OF FACILITATION

Afternoon Workshop: 1:00pm to 4:30pm

“Many people-- insurance agents, health professionals, and business brokers, to name just a few-- use the word 'facilitation' to describe their work," says Dr. Alder. "For those who assist groups needing difficult discussions, or help with issue clarification and pathway finding, there are some fundamental violations to avoid while facilitating. This workshop will explore good, better, and worse practices for independent practicioners or internal staff members who function as meeting facilitators." The workshop is recommended for people who serve as organizational facilitators or are retained to manage other meetings.
