I find it exciting and sometimes challenging when I receive requests for various workshops because it gives me an opportunity to research and learn new things. Once the workshops are developed, I then have the opportunity to interact with various and diverse populations as I teach strategies and techniques through interactive, creative, and experiential methods.
I develop workshops for all ages, from the arts to professional development. If you have an idea or topic you want to focus on, give me your expected outcome and I will do the rest!
A half-day interactive workshop focusing on the process and techniques of adapting to workplace culture. The participants delve into their own values, beliefs and norms, as well as those of their workplace, and then they process how to make adaptations to create a congenial and productive relational work environment. This workshop is great for supervisors, managers and their departments.
Taking Your Professionalism to the Next Level
A half-day interactive workshop combining self-reflection with strategies and techniques to help promote professional advancement. The participants examine their personal and professional strengths, weaknesses, and goals, and then learn how to integrate areas of empowerment, accountability, and marketing strategies into their daily workplace presentations and interactions. Participants develop and present 3-5 minute presentations and receive peer and facilitator critiques.
How Effective Is Your Networking?
A 2-hour interactive workshop focusing on how to build relationships for the purpose of sharing ideas, information, opportunities, and resources, and then how to maintain those relationships and effectively help others to make personal and professional connections. The participants explore self-awareness, self-assessment, self-confidence, positive interactions, and guidelines for effective networking.
Sharing Your Family Stories
A 3-hour interactive workshop combining family beliefs, traditions, and customs with storytelling. The participants learn about other families, while exploring their own family structure and the traditions within their immediate and extended families, and then how their family fits into a larger community.
Each family unit has the opportunity to create a colorful and creative quilt patch based on their own family structure and history, and then tell a short story about the patch as they connect their patch to other family patches to create a full community quilt. This is offered on Saturdays only and works best in a community setting such as a church, library or community center where the community quilt can be displayed. Bring your cameras to this workshop to take lots of pictures every step of the way!
