Chapter Meetings and Events
PMI Binghamton Chapter proudly annouces Professional Development Day (PDD)! The PDD topic is, 'Growing Emotional Intelligence Through Constructive Communications.' Please mark your calendars for Friday, April 16th! (Session PDUs = 4).
This will be a Virtual, two-part interactive presentation is to deepen your awareness of Emotional Intelligence (EI) – the capacity to be aware of, express and channel one's emotions, and to handle interpersonal relationships judiciously and empathetically. These foundational leadership skills – and life skills – can be immediately applied at work and also in your personal relationships. The learned skills are also an underpinning for increasing employee engagement, as well as improving – and sustaining – organizational performance.
Part 1 – Foundational Dimensions of Constructive Communications (2.0 hour duration)
Discover how to transform the way you communicate, both verbally and non-verbally, using two foundational dimensions of communication that dramatically affect EI. These dimensions guide our personal actions which, in turn, shape an organization’s culture, and ultimately affect business performance.
Note that Part 1 is a prerequisite for participating in Part 2
Part 2 – Providing Constructive Feedback and Resolving Conflict (2.0 hour duration)
Explore additional facets of constructive communication by first considering the characteristics of shared team values and their impact on sustainable success. We will also examine “blind spots” and “masks” that can strengthen interpersonal relationships. We will then learn and apply a six-step Constructive Conversation Process to give and receive feedback, and to also resolve interpersonal conflicts in a constructive manner, by applying powerful techniques for empathetic listening. The goal is to create a culture of trust and continuous feedback.
