Future ANUW Events

HRD960- Crucial Conversations®
January 24, 2017 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Chicago
Wieboldt Hall South Entrance
340 E Superior St
150
Chicago, IL60611

Please note:

THIS IS A TWO-DAY WORKSHOP - January 24 & January 31

Crucial conversations take place every day in our work. You know the type -- conversations where there are high stakes, differences of opinion, and strong emotion. The difference between mediocre and top performance lies not in strategies, hardware, or even in processes, but in how people handle those difficult conversations. At the heart of all problems in a team or organization are conversations that are either not being handled, or not being handled well.

Key Points
Identify the conversations that are keeping you from your desired results
Speak persuasively not abrasively, no matter the topic
Make it safe for others to share their honest opinions
Deal with people who either clam up or blow up
Gain control of your own emotional responses
Disagree without being disagreeable
Influence without exerting force
Improve teamwork, productivity and effectiveness


This practical and powerful two-day workshop is based upon a top-ten best-selling business book, Crucial Conversations.

Note that the second day of class will be held in the same room.

This interactive, one-day workshop offers you the opportunity to take a concentrated look at how to make your career development relevant to your current job and use it to propel you in the right direction as you grow at Northwestern.


Managing Your Career begins with a pre-workshop assessment called Career Drivers™. Career Drivers™ define the motivational aspects of work life — your absolute non-negotiables for satisfaction. Knowing your own Career Drivers™ allows you to make wise, empowered choices in your ongoing development and long-term career moves. The online Career Drivers™ assessment will be sent to you in advance.


You will then attend the workshop to:

Discover the talents common to everything you’ve accomplished

Have a new way to leverage development for current work performance and future goals

Learn how to create development goals that are engaging for you and accomplish department goals 

Upgrade your ability to communicate your value and not just your needs

Learn important strategies for identifying career directions, growing your networks and positioning yourself for future career success

HRD660- Grace Under Pressure
January 31, 2017 9:00 AM - 12:30 PM
Chicago
Wieboldt Hall South Entrance
340 E Superior St
409
Chicago, IL60611

It's that sort of day.

The phone is ringing off the hook. You're put on the spot in a meeting. All the problems are getting dumped in your lap.

You can feel yourself becoming reactive. You know you're not thinking clearly, that you're not being effective, but you don't know what to do. How can you turn a bad situation around?

“Grace Under Pressure” offers new tools for remaining calm, focused and open-minded during difficult encounters – real physical techniques that counteract what our bodies do during stress.

Many of these new approaches come from recent brain research.

In this lively, memorable half-day workshop, you'll go far beyond theory. You'll practice these techniques and make them your own, ready to put to use the next morning – or even on the way home that night.

Key Points

-Maintain composure in difficult situations
-Reduce stress on the spot
-Reverse the “fight or flight” reaction
-Think more clearly under pressure
-Be more present in difficult situations
