OVERCOMING “US VS. THEM” MENTALITY

Creating Inclusive Work and Life Environments

people sitting at table

This program provides insightful perspectives and practical tools on creating inclusive connections to build healthy boundaries and mutual respect without forcing compliance, attempting to change minds of others, or engaging in verbal combat.

2020 will take a prominent place in our history as humanity has been tested at a global scale and to the deepest level at its core. A deadly pandemic, divisive politics, deep-rooted social injustice, devasting economic hardship, and traumatizing isolation have severed our connections and destroyed our sense of belonging. The mental, emotional, and social health of humanity have been severely traumatized. As we cautiously approach rebuilding our new norms in 2021, we must be mindful of how we reconnect with the familiar while connecting with the new and different. One of the biggest challenges we must tackle first is dismantling the “Us vs Them” mindset, which keeps us divided politically, culturally, socially, and personally. Our differences do not have to divide us. When our differences are tolerated, we collectively produce sub-par outcomes. When our differences are accepted, we are merely meeting the status quo. However, when our differences are genuinely appreciated, we thrive. We can build an inclusive culture when we openly and intentionally appreciate our differences. Dismantling the “Us vs Them” mindset will create inclusive working and living environments, empowering each individual to thrive physically, socially, emotionally, and mentally.

Transcending the Unknown: Becoming more resilient in the face of challenges and changes

Transcending the Unknown: Becoming more resilient in the face of challenges and changes

Presented by Kari Knutson
Professional Speaker, Therapist, Storyteller

This engaging and timely presentation focuses on multiple topics related to how the world has changed since March of 2020. In light of these changes, we have had to refocus our priorities and overcome numerous obstacles in our personal and professional lives. The recurring theme of this presentation is shifting perspectives, cultivating courage, and harnessing the power of compassion. We will discuss the role of stress and how to identify and mitigate it, as well as positive coping mechanisms so that we can show up fully present in our roles, ready to engage thoughtfully and effectively with the people we serve. This presentation will also explore the ways in which we can adapt to new situations by shifting our perspectives and understanding the cycle of change. We will also discuss the role of courage in consciously choosing how we show up for ourselves and others as well as the concept of compassion and how we can use compassion to enhance our connections, expand our influence, and help us heal. Participants will leave with practical and actionable ideas that they can start using immediately.

The accord Tool for Successful Negotiations, Influential Conversations (and Great Meetings)

The accord Tool for Successful Negotiations, Influential Conversations (and Great Meetings)

Presented by Sara ‘Zora’ Boas
Founding Director, Boas Partners

The same deep structure and process can be used to achieve influential conversations, successful negotiations, and great meetings. Many of us use this structure unconsciously when we are at our best. However, when we skip essential steps, we undermine our own role as positive change-makers. In this highly interactive session, Sara ‘Zora’ Boas will teach us the six phases of her accord tool for transformation. Based on modelling what outstanding leaders and negotiators actually do, accord is used by community and business leaders around the world to engage people, take clear decisions together, gain real commitment, and generate powerful collaborative action. Participants will be encouraged to explore how they can apply accord in their own daily lives, to create and sustain health and wellbeing for people and the environment, even more effectively. By taking part, you will learn to:

  • Prepare for meetings/negotiations/conversations with your own and your partners’ true needs in mind
  • Create an atmosphere of trust, emotional safety, and productive cooperation
  • Establish clear expectations and a process for achieving shared goals
  • Drill down from sharing and developing ideas to agreeing on a specific plan
  • Ensure that each individual shares responsibility and commits to taking action
  • Keep up the momentum of implementation and continuous improvement

The “Exhausted Majority”

Hidden Tribes, Beliefs, and Navigating Our Tense Political Climate

Most Americans say this is the most politically divided we have been in our lifetimes. What is driving us apart, how can we better understand these differences, and — most importantly — how can we move beyond them?

WORKSHOP OBJECTIVE

Workshop participants will leave with the capacity to empathize with Americans of different political perspectives, and to feel equipped to proactively mitigate polarization as individuals, as leaders, and as organizations.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Workshop participants will:
  1. Gain a much deeper understanding of the underlying value sets and belief systems animating the current period of intense polarization in the US.
  2. Learn a Core Beliefs framework and the Hidden Tribes typology that explain why the country feels so divided and identify the frames for constructive engagement with new audiences.
  3. Apply tenets of the Core Beliefs framework in role-play to practice how to navigate polarization to more effectively connect with a broader range of stakeholders and audiences.

A full day of skill-building workshops by and for women.

 

 

CONFIDENCE

CONFIDENCE

Understanding it, identifying barriers to it, and applying a growth mindset.

Presented by Dr. Marti Schulte
President, Community Physician Consulting

The confidence workshop will explore confidence, how participants think about it, what confidence looks and feels like, and what a personal vision of confidence would be. Together as a group, attendees will discuss the questions: What do I look like when I am confident? How do I want to feel when I feel confident? Then, the group will identify and name barriers to confidence. Using this information, the growth mindset will be explored for understanding and applicability to cultivating a more robust sense of personal confidence. The workshop will include small group discussion and a hands-on activity to illustrate and enhance learning of the growth mindset.

VOICE

VOICE

Appreciating the danger of women’s silence, knowing what you want and your intention, and speaking clearly and powerfully to be heard.

Presented by Dr. Kathy Kennedy
Director, Regional Institute for Health & Environmental Leadership

What do I stand for? Why is it profoundly important for women’s voices to be heard? What are the challenges to being heard in the workplace, and when must those barriers be called out? How can I use my voice more effectively? Together we will practice creating assertive responses and “I” statements.

PRESENCE

PRESENCE

Leveraging emotional intelligence, tackling imposter syndrome, and discovering the power of vulnerability.

Presented by Deb Center
Senior Director for Education and Coaching, Colorado Center for Nursing Excellence

First impressions are formed instantly within two to thirty seconds and can impact how people perceive your capabilities, credibility, and knowledge. Regardless of abilities, evidence suggests leadership positions are given first to those that “look” and “act” the part with presence accounting for 28% of women’s success. Lacking or underestimating the importance of presence can cause women to be overlooked for executive and leadership positions, hindering career advancement. All women need to understand the importance of leadership presence and identify strategies for cultivating presence to enhance their success. Together, we will explore how to cultivate the three pillars of leadership presence through growing emotional intelligence, confronting imposter syndrome and developing vulnerability. The experiential session will provide self-awareness insights to help guide developing a personal action plan for cultivating leadership presence.

PLACE Training 2012

PLanning Active Community Environments

(PLACE) Training – 2012 Workshops

No additoinal PLACE Trainings currently scheduled in 2012.
COMPLETED: Gunnison, CO (January 27, 2012)
9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Creating active, livable and thriving communities that are sustainable, healthy and economically competitive requires an interdisciplinary and multi-sector approach to transportation and land use. Please join this interactive training and regional dialogue on planning active and healthy community environments.

In this training, participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Share their experiences, expertise and perspectives on fostering healthy communities through the built environment
  • Explore the healthy community design paradigm
  • Build their capacity for effective and comprehensive community engagement
  • Discover innovative and successful strategies for creating healthy and active community environments
  • Strengthen strategic partnerships across disciplines and jurisdictional lines
  • Explore a practical new framework and tool for organizing and implementing land use and transportation planning strategies that foster healthy communities
  • Formulate specific actions to advance healthy eating and active living environments in their community

Target Audience: It is requested that participants attend in multi-disciplinary teams of 4-6 people representing a self-defined community (e.g. neighborhood, city, county, region). Team members should reflect the different disciplines/interests involved in community design and development: planners, transportation engineers or specialists, economic development, elected or appointed officials, parks and recreation staff, school officials, environmental specialists, public and environmental health professionals, health advocates, bike/pedestrian advocates, etc. NOTE: Attendees from any location around the state are welcome to attend any PLACE Training workshops.

FAQ: What if I don’t have a team? Can I still attend? Yes! While it is strongly encouraged that people attend in multi-disciplinary teams, it is certainly ok to attend on your own.

Cost: $25 per person (Includes training materials, snacks and lunch).

  • We will accept payment by check, or by credit card via Pay Pal.
  • The payment due date and cancellation policy is outlined on the registration page (see link above or below).

SESSION DESCRIPTIONS

9:00 a.m. - A No-Fault Conversation about Race: How we got here isn’t necessarily where we need to go

Nita Mosby Tyler

Diversity, Inclusivity and Equity have become words that can either inspire understanding or ignite discourse. At the core of all of these discussions is race. This sometimes-uncomfortable topic can cause each of us to retreat or advance in our understanding of one another. During this interactive, fireside-chat-style session, Nita will explore the advantage of understanding race to further develop our leadership expert power, steps to lead authentic and gracious conversations about race, and how-to’s to promote a culture of inclusion using the lens of race as a guide. Participants will practice using several tools and learning circle opportunities for creating race/cultural responsiveness in their personal and professional lives.

Dr. Nita Mosby Tyler is the Chief Catalyst for The Equity Project.
