Save the date! Our 2011 Professional Development Day for faculty and staff will be on Thursday, September 22, 8:15 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
This year’s theme is “Developing Calm, Confident Power at Work.” New findings about the brain show that staying calm in challenging times can help our minds think more clearly, prioritize our workload and accomplish tasks more easily. Trainer and coach Suzanne Kryder will help you learn to notice and neutralize your negative judgments to develop greater self-confidence. You will also learn and practice a simple communication formula for bringing up and resolving challenging issues with colleagues or even your boss.
Put September 22 on your calendar, and if possible, avoid scheduling other campus events on this date.
