Chapter Meeting

Chapter Meeting - April 16, 2019



Keynote Presentation - Cole Chatterton

Why all the Conflict?

When one considers six generations, gender inequality, cultural clashes, power dynamics, microaggressions, and implicit biases occurring in nearly every workplace conflict is inevitable. If workplace conflict is foreseeable how do you approach it constructively over destructively? During this seminar attendees will learn strategies to respectfully and empathetically approach conversations that they often want to avoid. A word of caution, this training comes with a “twist” which will have attendees walking away examining where the conflict truly resides.


Educational Presentation - Cole Chatterton

Stop Presenting – Facilitate!

The first step in learning how to facilitate is to stop considering yourself a presenter. Presenting is one-way dialog whereas facilitation establishes a community sharing environment. Artfully stimulating conversation with attendees around a given topic encourages best practice sharing. The strategies range from pre-work, the way the room is staged, delivery of content, activities during the event and creating a feedback process. During this seminar you will learn how to motivate participants to bring an active voice into the room and feel as if their time was not wasted when the meeting is over. At the end of the day, you will learn how to begin honest conversations over perfect conversations for any room you enter.
