Using Reason to Resolve Conflict
Whether they take place in the workplace or in one's personal life, conflicts are inevitable; however, that does not mean that they must always be damaging. When emotions are understood and reason is used to handle conflict, the result can actually be strengthened relationships rather than damaged ones. This workshop discusses how you can replace pure emotion with rational decision-making when dealing with conflict.

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

Identify the potential outcomes of conflict:
* Describe what happens when conflict is handled poorly.
* Describe what happens when conflict is handled well.

Identify your conflict management style:
* Describe the five conflict resolution styles
* Describe the contexts for which each style is appropriate

Describe the most effective methods for handling conflict:
* Describe the importance of self-monitoring
* Describe the process of identifying motives
* Identify methods for communicating feelings appropriately

Target Audience: Anyone looking for ways to resolve conflict in productive rather than destructive ways.
*For Faculty/Staff only.*

Learning to Say "No"
Saying "no" can often be difficult. It can arouse feelings of guilt or fears of displeasing others. Nevertheless, the word "no" is one of the most important words in our language. By saying "no" we define who we are, what are willing or not willing to do and what we permit others to do to us. The ability to say "no" is critical skill that many have never developed or fear to use. This workshop will address the skills involved in learning to respectfully say "no" in order to build and maintain healthy self-esteem.

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

* Identify the reasons why it is important to say "no"
* Describe the distinctions between passive, aggressive and assertive behavior
* Identify the most common obstacles to saying "no"
* Describe the real and imagined consequences of saying "no"
* Describe several templates for saying no and how to effectively employ them

Target Audience: Anyone wishing to improve their ability to say "no" in a productive, respectful manner.
*For Faculty/Staff only.*

Providing Excellent Customer Service
"Your customer doesn't care how much you know until they know how much you care." ~Damon Richards.

Providing quality, consistent customer service needs to be at the forefront of every touch at all times. Customer service is not simply the interaction between the serving and the served.

Thriving in the Workplace Through the Power of Performance, Play and Improvisation!: Workshop II
Part II - On Creativity, Possibility, and Productivity
A three-part workshop on developing your improvisational skills for being happier, more satisfied, and more effective in the workplace. Led by popular and award-winning teacher and scholar, Dr. Omar Ali, the workshops are designed for participants who want to change their workplace environments so that they are more joyful and productive places to be. Combining the latest and most innovative research in developmental psychology, business performance, theater, and improvisation, Ali walks participants through a brief history of science regarding human development, play, and learning before launching into improvisational techniques and exercises. Grounded in the developmental methodology of the Russian psychologist Lev Vygotsky and the work of the American developmental psychologist Lois Holzman, Ali brings the latest science of play and performance to life.

Targeted Audience: All employees invited; and if you have been, bring a friend!

Instructor: Omar Ali, Ph.D., Dean of the Lloyd International Honors College and Associate Professor of Comparative African Diaspora History

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. Unfortunately, the possibility of this violent event taking place in your community has become a reality that employees and students have to deal with. 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;
A. Westbrook, Professional Standards Lieutenant
