Our department is offering four Professional Development Core Workshops, one per month, beginning in November 2022 through February 2023. Each month there will be a 1-hour workshop on a development topic, a 1-hour workshop on a fundamental self-awareness or skill topic, and an optional Calm-based short course learning program.
Crucial Conversations Skills Workshop
Is a system for approaching difficult conversations that relies upon a simple process and helps to build a practice of emotional intelligence into our interpersonal communication. It is a fundamental set of skills that will be helpful in our day-to-day work and essential if we are to be effective in our own professional development, including inviting and receiving feedback and identifying ways to improve our approach to developing resonant relationships. The book from which the workshop is derived will also be available as a lit-club discussion.
