Having Critical Conversations
February 26  |  1-3 p.m.
Critical conversations, or dialogue addressing critical issues within our environments, can be some of the most
uncomfortable situations we face. There are a host of issues contributing to our avoidance of them, including personality preferences, fear of rejection and hostility, cultural variables and others. Join us on February 26, from 1 to 3 p.m., as we learn some effective and practical methods for tackling these issues with a focus on mutual outcomes for lasting change. This webinar will be led by David Porter, DBA, PHR, SHRM-CP, SSBB, with Human Resources for HCA Healthcare.

Building a Culture of Collaboration
March 18  |  1-2:30 p.m.
Why do some teams flourish and others fizzle? Often times teams are composed of highly-intelligent experts in their disciplines, who have the greatest of intentions to collaborate, make decisions and seek success. Yet, these same teams may fail in being able to work together. A tool that can be used to predict team dynamics is the KAI (Kirton's Adaption-innovation Inventory), which measures if someone prefers to solve problems more adaptively or innovatively. Learn how the KAI can work for you and improve your team's success in decision making and collaboration. Join us for this webinar on how to navigate through decision-making in the workplace. We will hear from Curt Friedel, Ph.D., Associate Professor and Director, Center for Cooperative Problem Solving, Department of Agricultural, Leadership and Community Education, Virginia
Tech.
