We all want to communicate in a way that will result in understanding and collaboration, but whether we are aware of it or not, our unconscious biases often get in the way of healthy interactions with others.
In this one-hour session, you’ll learn about differences stemming from the twelve domains of culture which will help to expand your cultural perspective-taking, thereby increasing the knowledge and motivation to find new ways to communicate with your diverse team.

You don’t have to be an artist, poet, inventor, or scientist to be creative or demonstrate “out-of-the-box” thinking. Creative and innovative thinking is a quality that many businesses and organizations highly value and generously reward and we are all capable of it!
In this one hour workshop, learn how to unleash your innovative and creative potential and overcome the mental roadblocks established by years of old-fashioned traditional thinking.

We all must make decisions both business and personal, but how do you know if you’re making the right decision?

Do you always feel like you are at the mercy of colleagues, peers, friends, or family? Do you spend time and energy doing what others want you to do instead of what you want to do? Boundaries are important for healthy interactions but for many of us, it is difficult to establish, communicate, and maintain them. This course can help! You’ll learn why boundaries are important for maintaining healthy relationships, how to set clear boundaries, and how to communicate those boundaries effectively.
