This workshop has been cancelled. Please contact Jocelyn Billings with any questions.

Rapid change, flatter structures, and cross-functional duties mean that individuals today must assume greater responsibility for managing their own tasks. To do that, employees need to know how to handle competing priorities, shift gears smoothly, and coordinate and negotiate responsibilities, schedules, and resources with others.

The activities in this unit provide the awareness and skills participants need to make better decisions about their daily work. Participants learn techniques that help them deal with complex interpersonal interactions, build strong work relationships, and increase their overall productivity, even in an environment where changing priorities are a daily reality.
