Being Your Best Self  
Webinar Series

Join us for the fourth webinar in our series.

The juxtaposition of global pandemic and worldwide awakening to endemic social injustice and inequality has led to a moment of reckoning for organizations, the workforce, and society. Many people are re-examining who they are, who they want to be, and how they want to spend their lives, both inside and outside of work.

In this webinar, we’ll discuss the many factors at play as we navigate the current state and plan for the future and what the implications may be for our personal and professional growth. We’ll explore the difference between being in a learning mode rather than a performing mode and share some behaviors that will support learning communities and accelerate growth.

About this webinar series

The Centre for Human Relations and Community Studies is offering two transformational workshops happening concurrently in 2023:

Human Interaction Laboratory (HI Lab)    
July 9-14, 2023
foundational workshop designed to enhance your understanding of how you show up and interact in order to improve your personal and professional effectiveness

Developing the Personal and Organizational Self (D/OPS)      
July 9-13, 2023
An advanced workshop designed to build greater self-knowledge and fluency in using boundaries and choice to be more of the person you want to be at work, at home, and in the world

This concurrent offering enables attendees of each workshop to participate in joint plenary sessions to explore frameworks that are helpful to their development in an expanded learning community.

This free webinar series is designed to give you a taste of a few of the concepts and frameworks that will be explored more fully in both of these workshops. Whether you attend HI Lab OR D/OPS, you will be exploring concepts related to interactions, identity, and self-awareness, all of which are critical to growth and development.
