Chambers of Commerce Workshops
Community Conversations are small groups of people from your community (e.g. teams, circles or committees) that come together for a specific purpose. These can be: connecting with one another, building relationships, team building, problem solving, decision making, or addressing conflict. The goal is to learn from each other in a safe and engaging way. We lead the conversations in a circle format where everyone has a chance to share and be supported. Community conversations create a spirit of curiosity, respect and appreciation while building trust and discovering common grounds. We facilitate the conversations or we can teach your leaders how to facilitate them.
Dealing with Difficult People
Everyone has encountered a difficult person or situation. In this workshop, we look at these situations from different perspectives and garner a better understanding of our own feelings and behaviors. We explore different communication styles and effective skills that lead to more positive interactions and outcomes.
The Art of Working with Volunteers
Volunteers are the heart and soul of our communities. A lot of time and effort goes into finding, training, communicating, and providing support for them. During this workshop, we focus on inviting volunteers to share what they love to do, when they have time available. We discuss and explore time commitments, training, setting boundaries, open communications, having valuable meetings and dealing with strong feelings.
What Kind of Leader Am I?
Emotional Intelligence is the ability to manage your own emotions and behavior. It is also the capacity to recognize and influence the emotions of others and ultimately use that knowledge to motivate them. Practicing emotional intelligence and empathy has become an essential skill for all successful leaders. In this interactive workshop we explore empathy and emotional intelligence, then practice the skills for developing a stronger emotional intelligence.
