Verbal Judo, Vicki Willard 9 AM - 12 PM
There is a wealth of benefits to effective, assertive self-expression. The average workday is largely devoted to some form of communication. Research demonstrates over 86% of time is spent attempting to say what we really mean. Word choice, presence, appearance, and body language communicate something each time you interact with others. Your professional credibility lies in how you communicate important details and the overall picture of your ideas. This affects performance, yours and that of the people around you. Learn effective communication tactics, and you will create solutions and avoid problems.

Motivation, Dr. Scott Sheperd 9 AM - 12 PM
Designed to help people stay motivated and enthusiastic even during difficult times, this session will explore what people must do in their thinking process to avoid negative traps and what they can do if others around them seem to trying to pull their motivation down. Dr. Sheperd offers specific strategies for keeping enthusiasm and motivation escalating.
