Tina1:45-2:45pm   Become a Confident Negotiator: Manage the Inner Critic, Presented by Tina Greenbaum, LCSW

There are very specific skills that one needs to learn in order to negotiate successfully. But those skills alone, will not bring you the desired results unless you have this one important ingredient – and that is emotional control.  Easier said than done!

In this workshop, we’ll explore the feelings that are likely to arise when you’re in a “high-stakes” negotiation and how to train yourself to appear “calm, cool and collected,” even though that may not be what’s going on inside.

By the end of the training, you will learn how to:

  • Identify and recognize your own patterns that cause you to give in or give up
  • Regulate your nervous system, so your body is calm, and your mind is clear
  • Hold on to your power, even though you might feel frustrated, impatient or embarrassed

2:45-3:15pm  Afternoon Break


3:15-4:30pm  Leadership:  If it has to do with the CO, it has to do with you, presented by Candice Gottlieb-Clark

Being a successful leader often means winging it.  It means deciding in the moment which path to take, what opportunities to pursue, and how projects are to be prioritized.  Managing a team, however, should not be among those things we wing.

Through case-study, story-telling, and group discussion, this program will explore the areas where Leaders often overlook the responsibilities of their role.  From on-boarding to team development, from conflict management to accountability, this program encourages participants to determine the proactive steps they must begin to take in their effort to create collaborative and high-performing teams.  

Participants attending this interactive and thought-producing program will:

  • Learn how to develop a collaborative and high performing team 
  • Understand which behaviors foster the building of trust and accountability
  • Identify steps to transform your role and effectiveness as a leader

4:30pm-5:00pm  Free Time
