Round Two of workshops started today! Here’s some of the content that will be covered in Round Two:
Diversity: Delegates will identify the aspects of cultural identity, understand and analyze perceptions of different individuals and their cultural identities, determine the benefits of diversity and how these benefits are essential to leadership, and examine barriers to cultural competency and how to break through them.
Public Speaking and Facilitation: Delegates will identify personal strengths and challenges with public speaking, compare and contrast effective public speaking strategies, define facilitation and identify its importance within group interaction, and distinguish between contexts for public speaking and facilitation
The seminar prior to dinner was on Courageous Conversations. As leaders, it’s important to be able to work with people from backgrounds different than our own. Knowing how to navigate those difficult conversations that are sometimes necessary for us to recognize and realize our differences is an important skill for leaders of today to master.
We are continuing to work together in Committees (where we tend to be pretty product-focused) and in REALITY (which is sometimes a bit more process-focused), and we’re playing lots of games. Tonight we had even more group meeting time, which many teams spent outside playing Messy Games! We can’t believe the week is already halfway over. We’ve been working (and playing) hard, and it’s going by so quickly.
