Introduction and Course Overview
You will spend the first part of the day getting to know participants and discussing what will take place during the workshop. Students will also have an opportunity to identify their personal learning objectives.
Personal Best, Professional Best
To begin, participants will discuss what affects a first impression and how they can improve the impression they give to others.
Putting Others at Ease
One part of making a good impression is to get so comfortable with who you are that you can forget about you and concentrate on the other person. During this session, participants will explore ways to do this.
Participants will explore types of distorted thinking through a case study and large group discussion.
The Steps to Feeling Good
This session will give participants a three-step process to turn negative thinking or emotions around.
Assertiveness is a word we tend to use without really understanding what it means. This session will get participants thinking about what assertiveness is, using a lecturette, quiz, and group discussion.
Improving Your Assertiveness

Participants will discuss different forms of communication and barriers to each.
