Morning Workshop: "Diversity Intelligence: Inspiring By Including" 
8:30 am - 12:00 pm ⋅ 3.5 PDUs - Leadership

Workshop Background
Todays’ team leaders feel constant pressure to innovate and position their products, services, teams and themselves more creatively than ever before. However, in our highly diverse workplaces, cultural and diversity intelligence are critical to success. Diversity extends beyond race or ethnicity, religion, culture or newcomer status to include factors such as geography, language, politics, gender, beliefs, economic status, abilities, skills and interests. A diverse workplace reflects our communities. By aligning diversity intelligence with leadership values, strategies and communication practices to ensure a truly collaborative, inclusive and engaging work culture environment, we can inspire our high-performance teams to thrive at work.

Afternoon Workshop: "Fierce Conversations – How to Strategically Manage Conflicts in Your Projects"
1:00 pm - 4:30 pm ⋅ 3.5 PDUs - Leadership

Workshop Background
Conflict happens. It is inevitable. It is going to happen whenever you have people with different expectations or views. If ignored or handled badly, conflict can devastate a project, team or organization like a wildfire. If handled early and effectively, relationships and workplace culture will be enriched. Innovation and project team engagement improves. This makes conflict management critical – it takes skill to effectively avoid arguments, clarify misunderstandings, deal with disputes, and repair relationships. Simply put - conflicts require fierce conversations.
