Giving and Receiving Feedback
Every time two or more people get together to discuss anything in the workplace, an opportunity exists to either build relationships or damage them. So when it comes to discussions that require absolute clarity (feedback) and/or potentially sensitive subjects (criticism), it’s important that you are skilled enough to handle whatever comes your way, regardless of which side of the table you happen to be sitting at. This course helps you handle yourself professionally and effectively in every situation you face. Regardless of your title, there are basically four distinct roles you play when it comes to feedback and criticism, and each requires a different effort and strategy from you.

Living Life with Intention: Helping women set and achieve goals in all aspects of their lives
Women have begun acknowledging that we can’t have it all—at least not at the same time. Additionally, more women are coming forward to say that maybe a pause in one’s career is okay and does not have to be a career-killer.
This interactive workshop focuses on the idea that living life in an intentional manner will lead to having meaningful balance in one’s life. This session encourages women to set goals for their personal and professional lives, while thoughtfully identifying the best path for this journey.
