Sept. 24: Communication and Conflict Management

How well do you manage conflict? Conflict is part of our daily lives. How we manage conflict has a direct impact on how fulfilled we feel about our work, the quality of our work, and the quality of work from our respective teams or units. Effectively dealing with and using conflict as a positive tool is a major component of success in current or future leadership roles. 

Jeff King is facilitating this workshop. Cost: $75 per participant.

Oct. 8: Mission Possible: Positive Leadership

9 a.m. to noon, 105 Agricultural Administration Building, 2120 Fyffe Road, Columbus.

Are you a positive leader? Do you wonder what others think about your attitude as a leader? A quick test is to observe the way people react to you when you walk into a room. Are people happy to see you? Do they want to talk to you? Or do they quickly make themselves scarce? If they run when they see you, it’s time for an attitude check.

Organizations that have a positive culture are more productive, have happier employees, and most importantly, have happy and satisfied customers.

Leaders have a choice about their attitude — and no matter what the situation, you have a choice to make about how you are going to react. No matter the current situation, or who is causing the negativity in your organization or team, it is vital that you create positive strategies that keep the team and organization strong.
