Showing Up Professionally

Day 2 begins with optional morning yoga for everyone and the Community Forum, which is a great place to learn how the association and profession as a whole are showing up in different ways and spaces.

We’ll continue our journey as the lines diverge, and this line will spend 90 minutes with your second trainer focusing on The Transforming Power of Crucial Conversation. As a professional, your greatest asset is your ability to communicate clearly, confidently, and purposefully with others. This is especially important in high-stakes situations where opinions differ and emotions escalate. Crucial conversations allow us to grow personally and professionally, and how you handle them is essential to success. You’ll learn:
  • The concept of crucial conversations and how external and internal factors can impact the process
  • Why heart-powered relationships can influence crucial conversations and how to build such relationships
  • The importance of daily self-care, and how awareness of emotional, social, and intellectual capacity at any given moment will influence communication outcomes

After that stop, we’ll all come together again for a Lunch & Learn centered around wellness. Enjoy a meal with all your fellow attendees while discovering tips on how to show up for yourself from several wellness subject matter experts.

After lunch, join your track peers to put into practice once again what you learned in the morning, making note of what worked and what didn’t for the following debrief session. End the day with a Connect & Learn Rotating Roundtable to share your learning and experience with your track peers.
