With Dr. Beth Fisher-Yoshida
We live in an interdependent world. The stories we tell about ourselves and each other meet in both planned and unintentional ways. Sometimes these stories are synergistic and produce more than the sum of the parts. At other times, they bump into each other and cause conflict.
Join JProATL in this experiential workshop where participants will learn how to reduce destructive conflict and increase constructive disagreements, by transforming the stories that guide their lives and influence their relationships and performance in the workplace. This pertains especially to cultural differences including ethnicity, gender and generational.
To make the best use of our breakout sessions, we are limiting registration to 50 people.
