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.

Communication has never been more important than it is today. The world has become more sophisticated and complex and people have higher expectations. At the same time, we all work in a climate of increasing time pressures, financial constraints,and personal accountability. Given such competing demands it is not surprising that dissatisfaction and complaints continue to increase. Much of the time, these complaints and disagreements often relate more to what was said (or the way it was said) than what was done. By the end of instruction participants will be able to describe their own psychological type preferences in terms of the MBTI framework, identify the ways their type prefers to interact, and recognize behavior cues from each type preference. Further participants learn to identify behavioral cues and mental functions and explain how others prefer to receive communication in a professional setting. The session offers the time to discuss and begin to practice alternative ways of communicating with people of different type preferences to flex communication style. It is suggested, but not required, that participants have some past knowledge of the MBTI, although it is not expected that people will have gained that knowledge at Hopkins.

Dealing effectively with conflict is difficult for leaders and followers alike. 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 we assess how we currently handle conflict and develop the skills we 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.
