10:00 am – 12:00 pm – Session 1: Emotional Intelligence, Self-efficacy & Growth Mindset
Have you ever wished you could change your student’s or colleague’s attitudes toward more positive engagement in their work? You can! The secret is appreciating that all of us, as leaders within our classrooms and professional areas have a profound impact upon the emotional state of the people we engage with each day. In this interactive and fun presentation we will explore ways we as faculty and professional colleagues can increase the chances of student success, professional growth, and collaboration by improving attitudes toward work, relationships, and learning. We will discover ways we can encourage a mindset that leads to a stronger sense of self-efficacy and a more persistent effort among our students and our colleagues, as well as within our academic and professional community.
12:00 – 1:00 pm – Networking Lunch
1:00 – 3:00 pm – Session 2: Thriving in Change
Understanding and practicing the principles emerging from advances in the behavioral sciences on how change affects an individual is an essential skill for leaders, teachers, coaches and mentors in encouraging positive growth in people and organizations. The goal is to understand how to lead change in a manner that creates real sustainable positive transformation while maintaining rapport and connection with those we have the privilege to lead.
