Session 1: Influencing Without Authority and Cultivating Fruitful Relationships
Our professional lives are full of both the challenges and opportunities of working with others. Twenty-first-century knowledge work includes constant interactions and collaboration between teams and individuals; it requires interpersonal skills and communication that can keep up with the rapid pace of change in our workplaces. This 45-minute workshop is designed as a mix of information and exercises to build skills in influencing without authority and cultivating fruitful relationships in professional settings. Participants will gain techniques and tools to communicate with intention and build trust through empathy.
Presented by: Jessica Kohnen and Jennifer Meder, partners at hyve
Session 2: Why take the to plan … let’s just do something!
Strategic planning is not just getting together every few years for pie-in-the-sky discussions and dreams of what might be. As the great philosopher Yogi Barra said, “If you don’t know where you are going, you might wind up someplace else.” It’s about alignment, focus, agendas, budgets, programs, staffing … it’s the WHY for all the WHATS an organization does or should be doing. We will discuss the reasons, the processes and some of the different outputs and uses of strategic discussions.
Presented by: Richard F. Dorman, Catalyst Group of Alexandria
