This session reviews the basics of personality type theory, and then challenge participants to use the behavioral cues which they see in others to provide insight into what their patient's / colleague's Myers-Briggs personality type might be, thus providing opportunities to flex their own behavior in order to communicate more effectively. Film clip interviews with patients, small group activities, and practice sessions are used to make this course an interactive and challenging learning activity which will be well worth your time. Psychological Assessment: Participants are offered the opportunity to complete the MBTI Step II in advance. Small group activities will be structured around MBTI preferences, and in order to participate fully in the sessions, we do ask that you be willing to share your four-letter MBTI code (although personal scores do not need to be shared). If you do not wish to complete the assessment in advance, or to have your Myers-Briggs type known to the group, please let the course coordinator know in advance. In this case, you're welcome to attend as an observer, but may not receive the most advantage.

Dealing effectively with conflict is difficult for any leader. Some try to avoid conflict and wish it would go away, while others tend to get angry and lash out at others in ways they regret later. Poorly managed conflict creates enormous costs in the form of wasted time, turnover, and lawsuits. How can leaders assess how they currently handle conflict and develop the skills they need to deal with conflict more effectively. This course examines the sources of conflict in organizations, and probes the special nature of traditional adversarial roles, hierarchy, and special interests within an organization.Through case studies, role-plays, and examples shared in class, participants investigate effective methods for reaching satisfactory agreements. The Conflict Dynamics Profile is administered to provide the individual with greater self-knowledge of personal style. Using small-group activities, participants develop and practice effective conflict resolution strategies.

Communication matters. It’s at the heart of how professional people function effectively. Even people who communicate well typically would volunteer that they also believe they could communicate better. Better and more influential communication can provide an advantage to everyone, especially in understanding individuals whose preferred behavior is different than your own. This course strengthens participants’ self-awareness as individuals and leaders by providing feedback on key components of personality as measured by the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and offers a review of how participants can use the cues which they see in the behavior of others to provide insights into what their Myers-Briggs personality type might be, thus providing opportunities to flex their own behavior to more effectively work with others and to influence their decision making and behavior by understanding their preferences for the type of data they normally value most, and the ways in which they most often use it to make choices.   Psychological Assessment: Participants are offered the opportunity to complete the MBTI Step II in advance.  Small group activities will be structured around MBTI preferences, and in order to participate fully in the sessions, we do ask that you be willing to share your four-letter MBTI code (although personal scores do not need to be shared). If you do not wish to complete the assessment in advance, or to have your Myers-Briggs type known to the group, please let the course coordinator know in advance. In this case, you’re welcome to attend as an observer, but may not receive the most advantage from your participation since you won’t have your personal data to consider during discussion.

Time is a commodity, and time wasted in unproductive meetings is a drain on most organizations.  Meetings must be focused, interesting, and productive, as well as effective.  This workshop provides leaders and managers with tools and a variety of highly effective meeting management techniques that can help to reduce the amount of time required for problem solving and decision-making.  These techniques and tools can be used for standing meetings, shorter-term project team meetings, strategic business planning as well as emergency problem solving meetings.  Your participants will notice the difference.  Learn about the various roles of leaders and facilitators, and come to understand the personal and organizational barriers and roadblocks to running effective meetings.  This workshop will include practice using meeting planning tools, an overview of a profile that shows a model of common thinking styles, and ideas on how differing personalities can be a positive force for creativity and productivity.  Learn about the stages teams go through as they develop.  Techniques and tools such as the PART, Visible Agenda / Planning Sheet, Problem Statement, If-Then Chart and Decision Matrix will be practiced.  Bring just yourself or your entire team.

The environment in which health care professionals practice is one in which conflict and the need for negotiation abounds. The ability to foster agreements and manage conflict within and between workgroups can strengthen relationships, transform ideas into initiatives, and move parties beyond stuck places.  This interactive workshop is designed to help participants understand and apply a systematic approach to preparing for, structuring, and engaging in business and health care negotiations.  Participants will learn how to diagnose a negotiation or conflict and choose from a spectrum of responses based upon the presenting “symptoms.”  Negotiation cases and group discussion will provide participants with insight in to their own negotiation and conflict handling styles and the opportunity to practice new frameworks and techniques.
