Neighborhood Walk

Lead by Marilyn Booye, meet at the Flagpole in the Main Quad

Using Microsoft Sway
As part of the Office 365 Suite, Sway offers you the ability to share graphically-pleasing information online. Great for presentations, lectures, tutorials and more. Some features are similar to PowerPoint, but you can build better interactivity, embed YouTube videos, and create richer presentations. Join us and learn the basics of this powerful tool.
Presenter: Heidi King, room MLC-243 (upstairs)


Professional Growth Awards
We will review the Professional Growth Award application, cover eligibility requirements, and define what constitutes professional growth activities for classified staff. There will be adequate time to answer your specific questions about filing a PGA application.
Presenters: Mary Kay Englen and Kris Lestini, room MLC-270 (upstairs)

 

Generations at Work
The dynamics of today’s work force are changing rapidly. Each generation brings its own values, rules and styles, which sometimes can leave conflict and unproductive competition in its wake. This program can help participants understand generational differences and offer tips for creating a harmonious workplace.
Presenter: Simone Ferber, room MLC-112

Dealing With the Elephant in the Room
Dealing with the elephant in the room is a communications development seminar in which participants learn the skills to talk to anyone about anything. Participants begin by identifying the uncomfortable issues and realities they face at work and at home. Then they learn how to confront such issues with tact, empathy and clarity. Dealing with the elephant in the room increases productivity and improves relationships by addressing problems, conflicts or misunderstandings proactively.
Presenter: Christen Burzlaff, room MLC-111

Wisdom and Happiness in the Workplace
Wise decisions in the workplace and in life lead to greater happiness, success, and well being. Wisdom Therapy is a scientifically established program that has identified wisdom skills and the practical methods for learning wisdom sooner rather than later. This workshop will describe these wisdom skills, provide examples of their practical applications to the workplace and to every day life, and will facilitate the presentation with videos, games, and jokes to bring lightness and amusement.
Presenter: Shani Robins, room MLC-110

2:30–3:30

The New Resumé
If you haven’t looked for a job within the last five years, you may not know that the entire job search process is completely different. Consequently, the role of the resume is different. In this workshop we’ll learn how to create the “new resume,” a suite of documents in print and online that establishes you and your “brand.”
Presenter: Simone Ferber, room MLC-112

Professional Writing and E-Mail Etiquette
How do you ensure your email will be read? This program identifies the do’s and don’ts of email and offers suggestions for writing them in a way that captures the attention of the recipient and gives them all the pertinent information. The presentation includes information about subject line, format, content, emotion, grammar and punctuation, signature and the use of CC and BCC.
Presenter: Christen Burzlaff, room MLC-111
