"Liar, Liar": Communicating Effectively and Creating Systems of Feedback
Having a difficult conversation, getting your message across, hearing from your teammates how you are doing, making sure every voice is heard. These are some of the topics we'll explore in this workshop that focuses on communicating both internally to your organization and externally to third parties.
"Mission Impossible": Why Your "Why" Matters - And What Happens Without It
How do you write an effective, inclusive mission statement, and why is it important? Learn what it means to translate an intangible vision into a tangible set of actions, and how to align your programs and events with the mission of the organization. It's time to figure out when to say no - and why.
"Keeping up Appearances": What's Your Reputation and How Do You Change It?
What happens when others (or other groups) view your group differently than you do? How does perception hamper or enhance performance metrics? Why aren't your group members as excited as you are? Learn about your organization's internal and external reputation, why it matters, and how to manage it.
"Fight Club": Managing Group Dynamics and Shaping Group Norms
Tensions, personal drama, insults, and injury. The human element makes these an unavoidable reality, and learning how to manage them is critical in fostering a positive, inclusive, and productive environment. Understand how to read the dynamics in a room, question the role of culture or traditions, and take active steps towards shaping group norms.
