    Program Summary: 

    Morning Session (8:30 - 11:15 am)

    Emotional Intelligence – Building Awareness and Influence

    Presented by Jill Staffne & Molly Stanley

    Life is full of moments – from big distractions, frustrating occurrences, or micro incidents you barely even recognize. How you interpret and react to these moments is key to success in so many ways. Regardless of how smart you are, emotional intelligence is a mindset and a set of skills that help you control and express your emotions, and help you handle interpersonal relationships. This session will help you take a hard look at your own reactions to highly emotional situations and walk you through everyday tools and tips to get a handle on responding to situations professionally. We’ll learn the science behind emotional intelligence and leave with a heightened awareness about the prevailing success that comes in life when you develop these skills.

    Learning Objectives: 

    1. Take control of out of control situations
    2. Gain influence and buy-in from your executive leadership team
    3. Gain influence and buy-in from those you supervise
    4. An improved overall mental health

    Afternoon Session (1:15 - 3:30 pm)

    Crushing Crucial Conversations

    Presented by Eric Piela

    Crucial Conversations training teaches skills for communicating when the stakes are high, opinions vary, and emotions run strong. This 2-hour overview provides the tools for creating alignment and agreement by fostering open dialogue – at all levels of the organization. By learning how to speak and be heard (and encouraging others to do the same), you’ll surface the best ideas, make the highest-quality decisions, and then act on your decisions with unity and commitment.

    Learning Objectives: 

    1. Improve Dialogue and Engagement: Participants learn the dialogue skills demonstrated by top performers—skills that help you talk with anyone about anything to reach alignment and agreement on important matters.
    2. Create Behavior Change: These skills turn in to behaviors that improve decision making, commitment to action, productivity, and relationships.
    3. Build High-Performance & Culture: Consistent behaviors lead to organizations, teams, and individuals developing high-performance cultures based on trust and respect.
    4. Resolve Individual and Group Disagreements: Provide resolution in organizations that suffer from taboo topics, deference, disagreement, analysis paralysis, information hoarding, office politics or alienation.
