Friendly Persuasion: How to Get the Things You Want
While it's true that some people are intuitively good at persuading others, for most of us the most reliable path to success lies in knowing what we want to achieve and systematically deciding how we want to go about achieving it. Persuasion is a skill that everyone in the organization uses to accomplish goals. Used effectively, persuasion can lead to solutions that work in everyone's best interest. This workshop will provide you with communication techniques to get the results that you want and need.

At the end of this workshop, you will be able to:

Describe how to assess your own persuasive abilities
* Describe the results of your persuasion self-assessment

Identify the steps that will make you persuasive
* Describe how listening well can contribute to your ability to persuade others
* Identify questioning techniques that can help you get what you want
* Describe ways to make sure that you get feedback during a persuasive dialogue

Create a personal action plan to improve your persuasive abilities
* Identify the steps you will take upon completing this session

Target Audience: Employees looking to improve their skills in persuasion.
*For Faculty/Staff Only*

RUN, HIDE, FIGHT - Active Shooter Training
This workshop provides information on surviving an active shooter incident. "Shots Fired!" is the last thing you expect to hear in the workplace or at school.

Although no one is exempt from this threat, injury or death does not have to be the inevitable outcome.

At the conclusion of this workshop, attendees will recognize the sound of gunfire, demonstrate the three response options, explain when each option should be used, and describe your interaction with law enforcement when they arrive.

Targeted Audience: All Students, Staff, and Faculty.

Instructors:S. C. Dedona, Support Services Captain;

Developing Will Power and Self-Control for Behavior Change
Establishing self-control over behaviors such as overeating, smoking, gambling, pornography consumption, shopping, gambling and other addictive behaviors can be extremely difficult and discouraging. This course will address the nature of will power and how to develop self-control for effective behavioral change.

At the end of this workshop, you will be able to:

* Recognize the battle that occurs in the brain between impulse gratification and pursuit of long-range goals
* Describe how stress, emotional strain, lack sleep, and alcohol or drugs can strain mental resources and increase vulnerability to temptation
* Describe how to increase motivation and engagement in the process via support networks and how and when to seek professional help

Identify ways to increase self-control such as:
* Become aware of the risks and consequences of the behavior you wish to change
* Change your impulses by associating temptations with negative consequences
* Transform vague long-range goals into simple intermediate steps
* Identify and avoid risky situations
* Formulate "if, then" contingencies
* Train your working memory

Target Audience: Anyone concerned with changing a problematic behavior.
*For Faculty/Staff only.*

Creating Effective Online Discussions
Robust research indicates that students who engage in online discussion have higher course completion rates and better outcomes, develop diverse perspectives and interactive skills, and build better online community. However, research also suggests that student thinking levels are lower and thus instructors find online discussions less effective than they would like. In this session, we will discuss effective strategies and structures for online discussion. Please come prepared to share your questions, challenges, and successes with the group.

Intercultural Sensitivity Awareness
The International Programs Center (IPC) is offering this workshop to help UNCG faculty and staff increase awareness of their own cultural background and heighten their intercultural sensitivity (a lifelong learning experience). This three-hour workshop centers around Milton Bennett's Developmental Model of Intercultural Sensitivity (DMIS), a model of the development of one's worldview structure. According to Bennett, "The underlying assumption of the model is that as one's experience of cultural difference becomes more sophisticated, one's competence in intercultural relations potentially increases."

Intended audience: All employees interested in incorporating intercultural competency into curriculum (as part of our university-wide internationalization plan) and/or into their daily professional/personal lives. The IPC staff will provide light refreshments.

Enrollment will close Wednesday, November 1st to allow test taking and results generation prior to the November 14th class. The fee is $12.00. Please use a BANFIN-33 and submit to Human Resources.
NOTE: All enrollees are required to register for the workshop at least two weeks in advance to allow time to complete the 30-minute online Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI). There is a $12 fee which must be paid before taking the online IDI. If you have any questions please contact Sarah Dreier-Kasik, s_dreier@uncg.edu, 336-334-9795.

Being a Leader in a Culture of Change
The road to transformation requires many changes. As a leader, you are challenged to serve as a change agent, create a positive environment of excitement around the potential benefits of change, and support your team's efforts to adapt and maintain change initiatives.

Prosci's change management methodology is developed based on research with over 3,400 participants over the last twenty years. What is unique about the methodology is that it comes from real project leaders and teams reflecting on what worked, what did not and what they would do differently on their next project. The resulting process, tools and assessments have been developed with one goal in mind: that you can put them to use on your projects while building your (and the University's) change management skill set. We will examine a three-phase model you can work through for the change initiatives your team is supporting. The methodology includes research-based assessments and templates to support each phase, as well as guidance for completing each step most effectively.

Target Audience: Leaders who are interested in managing their change.

Instructor: Victoria Benson, Deputy Chief Human Resources Officer
