Clark State is excited to present two workshops on March 16, 2012, at our Greene Center campus in Beavercreek. Dr. Robey, back by popular demand, will present Effective Communication for Managers and Managing Conflict and Anger.

These workshops are specifically designed for people who work with people! It will benefit all professionals whether you are in management or hoping to move into a managemment position.

Here are a few comments from last year's evaluations:

"Excellent! I especially liked the 2 E words... Essence/Existence"
"Great presenter, knowledgeable, humorous, captivating"
"I'm coming back again next year, what is the date?"

These two workshops will provide six (6) CEU's for RN's and LPN's. As an added bonus, nurses may chose to attend a one-hour lunch session on Ohio Laws Governing Nursing Practices (OBN approval # OBN 005-92). This session will provide one (1) additional CEU for RN's and LPN's. A box lunch may be purchased to enjoy while the session is presented.

Hope to see you at one of these informative seminars.

Effective Communication for Managers & Managing Conflict and Anger 

Communication is not what is said, but what is heard...

This course will identify the perception barriers that effective communicators must overcome. You will learn:

  • Three communication tools to strengthen communication success.
  • Why "Active Listening" is the most important communication tool.
  • Key differences between coaching, mentoring and counseling.
  • Five essential steps for successful delegation.
  • Ten guidelines for gaining optimal impact from your coaching sessions.

Managing Conflict and Anger

Every conflict presents an opportunity to grow.

Often, people who are labeled "difficult" are really just "different" than we. Nothing reveals what a person values more than what they get angry about. The key to anger management is to learn to respond to that anger effectively. This program addresses four psychological needs felt by all people: the need to be valued, respected, have influence and grow.

  • Recognize and effectively respond to anger and conflict.
  • Differentiate between effective and ineffective conflict.
  • Clarify and define the power of attitude in dealing with conflict.
  • Ask, "Who's problem is this?"
  • Learn the roles of trust and appreciation in managing conflict.
  • Utilize effective communication tools to resolve conflict.
