Time Management Tools: To-Do Lists, Calendars, Smartphones and More
It seems that more than ever, people are living busy, chaotic lives that often leave them feeling overwhelmed and out of control. Between work, parental responsibilities, community involvement, exercise, hobbies, friendships, family responsibilities and more, sometimes it feels as if keeping track of it all is just impossible. Fortunately, there are many tools available to help people gain control, though sometimes sorting through what is available can add what seems like even more chaos to life. Smartphones, day planners, alarms, e-mail systems, priority grids, voice mail systems, note pads, to-do lists, contact lists, address books, folders, file cabinets and more!

The purpose of this workshop is to help you sort through the tools available to help you organize your life, and pick the ones that will work for you.

Simulation of Organizations
This simulation is simple, non-threatening, and challenging to the individual. Yet, it has profound effects for people as they attempt to understand and make sense of the experience. This simulation displays in a very real way, how difficult it is to communicate across organization structures, allows participants to experience decision-making and role ambiguity at a different level of the organization than they may presently be used to, allows for feedback from other parts of the organization on their participation in a simple task, and provides the experience of leading at whatever level of the organization they happen to find themselves.

Balancing Work and Life
Using the philosophy that "those who are happy at home perform better on the job," this workshop was developed for those who feel burdened with too many responsibilities and without enough time for personal enjoyment.

This workshop will help participants explore and define home responsibilities, identify career requirements and prioritize leisure time. The resulting better balance will help achieve more in one's career and at home.

Paying Off Debt While Building Wealth
In difficult economic times, many people are struggling to just keep up with monthly bills, let alone make progress on debt repayment. What suffers most is contributing to savings and investing goals. This session will focus on developing financial plans and strategies to address the dual goals of having a plan for paying off debt, while also contributing to building personal wealth.

This session covers the basics (or essentials) of each area and describes practical techniques that can help you to formulate your own plan to manage your personal finances to organize a sensible debt repayment plan without sacrificing other financial goals.

The Sandwich Generation: Balancing Your Personal Life with the Needs of Your Older Parents or Loved Ones
Most of us reach a point in life when parents or elderly relatives begin to require more attention and time, and sometimes, our financial support as well. Caring for an older person can be complicated and few of us are trained for the many aspects of that care. Providing care for an elder is a very personal matter. No two situations are the same and there are no simple solutions. You can, though, benefit from following some practical suggestions. Balancing work, family and care-giving responsibilities can present some challenges.

This workshop provides an overview of information to help the participant cope with their personal life while dealing with their elder's needs.

Intercultural Sensitivity: Looking Through Other Eyes
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, April 8th to allow test taking and results generation prior to the April 22nd class. See these documents for Payment and Test Taking Instructions. The fee is $12.00.

Emotional Intelligence
Implementing discipline over our emotional life is difficult and requires lifelong practice. Being able to choose to act or respond in a particular manner is preferable to re-acting on a consistent basis, yet it is difficult. Enhancing emotional intelligence improves our ability to master our emotional functioning. High emotional intelligence can improve our communications with all others, enhance our perception of satisfaction with ourselves and our lives and increase our productiveness overall.
