These workshops are a great opportunity for your members to obtain professional training/CEU’s, network and learn with peers.


The 2019 Workshop Topic

“Secrets to Changing Work Behavior”

Have you wished you could change someone at work? You may have tried your best to coach and encourage, added cajoling, used progressive discipline and maybe even offered rewards … but still saw no results.  Research shows you can be 400% more successful by unlocking something deeper – mindset.  Join your peers and explore the simple but challenging approach of shifting mindset.  Professional Standard Key Area 3:  Administration; Human Resources and Staff Management; 3450 Employee Health, Safety and Wellness.


The Presenters

Subject Matter Experts: from Arbinger Institute

Once workshop dates are selected, a trainer will be selected for your site.  The Arbinger team works with individuals, teams, and organizations to move from the default self-focus of an inward mindset to the results-focus of an outward mindset. Through training, coaching, consulting, and a suite of implementation tools, we enable organizations and their people to achieve results that are only possible with an outward mindset.
