Workshop #1

Why Distress Tolerance Matters

In today’s fast-paced work environment with looming deadlines and a constant pressure to adapt, we can experience an unhealthy strain. This pressure makes it challenging to block anxiety and face unfamiliar territory head-on. However, the ability to overcome obstacles is a key dimension to being curious and making strides in innovation – it is what is called distress tolerance. Join Bill Richardson for an entertaining but practical look at how to identify and develop this critical performance trait that enables us to approach new and unfamiliar events in our lives with courage, perseverance and the willingness to take calculated risks.

Workshop #2

Connecting with People Through Engaging Conversations.

  

Empowering yourself and learning how to connect with people using 9 keys of communication. This workshop is an unconventional approach to learning how to connect with people and interact with people on a daily basis. Whether you are communicating with your peers, managers, colleagues and or stakeholders, incorporating these 9 keys in navigating conversations will foster a more engaged interaction. When people are engaged, they naturally foster a more invested mindset in the conversations and task at hand, they will recognize their value and want to contribute in a more meaningful way. 

This workshop will be an interactive event where participants will work through an activity that will demonstrate the impact of fostering a connection with people through engaging conversations.

Workshop #3

Influence without Authority

As organizations evolve to be flatter and more team-based, we are faced with having responsibility for results without the formal authority of a position or title to make it happen.  These new ways of working require more collaboration and relationship building, but who has the time?  Use the science behind influence to make your collaboration and relationship building skills sharper and more effective.  You’ll see how to get results in your projects even when you don’t have the title or position you think you need – without using manipulation!
