Recommended for Supervisors

Significant change is becoming a regular aspect of our complex world. When faced with disruption, leadership has two choices: to lean away from discomfort and the unexpected, or lean into the possibilities change presents. In this session, supervisors will have an opportunity to explore what makes us lean away or into transition, and how our approach to change has a meaningful impact on those we steward (related theories: Immunity to Change, Situational Leadership).

Whether dealing with a sensitive issue with a boss or sorting out a conflict with a colleague, we often attempt to avoid difficult conversations. No matter how competent we are, we don’t readily embrace conversations that could cause us anxiety or frustration. In this session we will explore our internal and external barriers to conflict and learn how to prepare for a conversation that is clear, meaningful and effective.

Work is not just about making brilliant decisions. It is also about how we manage our time and energy, individually and as a team. Almost everyone feels there is not enough time in a day, but there are days when we feel “Wow, we got a lot done”. How do we make that happen more often? Sometimes the problem isn’t lack of time at all, it’s lack of energy. When we are at our best we can zip through a project, but when we are tired or uninspired the hours go by but not a lot is accomplished. The objectives for this topic are to:
