Workshop Title: Achieving Balance

PeopleSoft Course Code: UHD202 (section 001)

Date: Thursday, March 14, 2013

Time: 1-2:30 p.m. (1.5 hours)

Location: N602

Description: Did your New Year's resolution include establishing "balance" in your life? How about promises to manage your time more efficiently? Have you already gotten off track? If you answered yes or to any or all of these questions, this training session is for you! During this interactive training session we will discover how to prioritize the important things in your life, identify time wasting behaviors, discover realistic solutions to time challenges and create a personal action plan to get you started. We cannot promise any additional hours in the day, but we can help you manage the 24 you have more efficiently.

Workshop Title: Communicating Convincingly

PeopleSoft Course Code: UHD203 (section 001)

Date: Friday, March 29, 2013

Time: 10-11:30 a.m. (1.5 hours)

Location: N602

Description: Have you ever said something and the person you were speaking to took it totally wrong? Have you ever tried to convey a message but just weren't sure how to get it across in the most effective manner? Have you ever been offended by something someone said but failed to get clarity and carried the wrong message away from that interaction? This session will focus on the important aspects of communication, including the most important aspect - listening. Participants will learn more effective methods of delivering a message so it is positively received and how they can ensure the message they receive is the one that is intended. Learn tips and techniques on how to say what you mean when you mean what you say.
