    There are many choices to be made in the workplace. The workplace can be a breeding ground for conflict due to different personality and communication styles. We can choose to ignore or accelerate conflict with others, or we can choose to allow conflict to make the positive changes within our organization. On the other hand, we can choose to work collaboratively, or cooperatively together to further the goals of our organization. It's a choice we make, so what will it be today?

    Over the past decade a growing body of literature has documented the importance of social and emotional effectiveness as well as effective coaching (how we take good people and make them the best they can be) and feedback skills.  As leaders face times of increasingly rapid changes within their respective organizations, teams, and/or laboratories they must proactively work with others to lead them through these challenging times while continuing to meet the changing needs of stakeholders and clientele.

    “The best leader is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it.” - Theodore Roosevelt Research indicates that employees leave bosses, not organizations.

    We’re all in the same business, the people business. It’s not what we make or sell that’s critical; it’s how we take care of the people who buy it. Our job is to make customers (internal and external) happy. What’s the best way to do that? By giving our “pickles.” “Pickles” are those special or extra things you do to make people happy. It may be doing something extra for a customer or sending a handwritten thank you to them. The trick is figuring out what your customers want, then making sure they get it, that’s the “Pickle!”

    The foundation of personal and professional success lies in understanding self, understanding others and realizing the impact of personal behavior on the people around you. DISC provides an insight into an individual’s style that can help predict the likely trends of their behavior in the future. It does this by evaluating four key factors in an individual style (Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Compliance).

    There is a lot of literature surrounding the meanings of coaching and mentoring, each with a slightly different perspective. How do they differ? How are they the same? How are they a part of and benefit to the larger organizational system? Workshop participants will:

    Are you a positive leader? Do you wonder how 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.
