Being your Best Self
  Webinar Series

Join us for the second webinar in our three-part series, facilitated by Fred Miller and Yabome Gilpin-Jackson, two trailblazers in the field of organizational development.

Collaborating across departments, functions and groups is a must for higher performance in today’s workplaces. Enhanced collaboration skills can build connections with others, increase personal power and influence, and improve individual performance. These collaboration skills also improve team and organizational ability to solve complex problems quickly, come to decisions faster, and accelerate results, particularly in these times of rapid and often turbulent change.

The benefits of collaboration aren’t a secret…but that doesn’t mean the specific behaviors that help ensure collaboration happens are well-known, common practices. In this interactive webinar, participants will:

  • Learn about the 4 Keys—simple, powerful behaviors that transform the way people interact, reduce waste in interactions, drive greater clarity and foster better partnership.
  • Evaluate their own use of these behaviors and think about which ones they want to increase their practice of.
  • Consider how they might apply the 4 Keys in their interactions in all areas of life and what the benefits might be.

We hope you will join us for this free webinar and the next one later this winter:

About this webinar series

The Centre for Human Relations and Community Studies is offering two transformational workshops in 2022:

Human Interaction Laboratory (HI Lab)    
May 1-6, 2022

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)      
May 1-5, 2022

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 FREE, three-part 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 growth and development 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
