Diversity & Inclusion - Why Is It Crucial to Your Organization?

thursday, march 25 (Virtual Session)

7:00-9:00pm

Diversity is a ‘hot button’ topic in America right now. However, this subject is mostly being approached from the perspective of fear about our differences instead of from the opportunities brought forth by the same. Fearing what we don’t understand only promotes limitations in our growth. What we must remember is that the very strength of our nation is reflected on the writing of our National Seal, “E Pluribus Unum” – Out of Many, One.

Social Culture & Addictive Behaviors

Addiction can occur in many forms.

How To Use Emotional Intelligence To Lead And Adapt To Change

We will break down the qualities of an emotionally intelligent leader and learn clear, actionable ideas on how to integrate these into our lives for maximum impact.

Leadership, Job Readiness & Career Workforce

tuesday, june 8 (Virtual Session)

6:00-7:30pm

Early youth employment experiences are critical to preparing young people to access living-wage careers when they finish their education. Both employers and youth serving providers want to know that young people are prepared when they enter these first jobs or internships, and while most people have a general understanding that “soft skills” are critical to preparation, there has been little consensus on which soft skills are most important, and how to talk about them.

Take a Leap, It Will be Worth It 

thursday, june 17 (Virtual Session)

6:00-7:00pm

As human beings, it is part of our inherent nature to ensure that we are safe and secure. When man first roamed the earth there were dangers everywhere from wild animals to poisonous berries and part of our brain was programmed to make us avoid danger or discomfort. Instead we sought safety and comfort wherever possible. That survival strategy is still very valid today and every perceived "danger" takes a different form which is why we often sit in our comfort zone(s). In our comfort zone we can operate in an anxiety neutral and risk free way and we know we can be, deliver or perform in a "steady" way. Some people are quite content to stay in that zone, for others they seem to go to the extreme of risk by throwing themselves over that boundary again and again. Each of these behaviours has a cost and a benefit.
