SMU HRs Professional Development Workshop (PDW) Quick Takes are short lunchtime sessions jam-packed with tools to get your career in shape.
PDW Quick Takes are offered at no cost to SMU staff and faculty.
Five new Quick Takes are being offered in the Spring of 2011!
Happiness and the Power of Positive Psychology on January 25
Learn from Jeff Strese’s recent study of the power of positive psychology, and his 20 plus years of counseling people, to begin to envision a new future for yourself and those close to you. Learn what enables happiness, how hope affects your overall health and ways to unleash your talents and creativity by being happy.
Difficult Conversations on April 5
Back by popular demand and to accomodate the waiting list from the December offering, Jeff Strese, Director of SMU HR, will repeat his session on Difficult Conversations. Join Jeff and learn how to navigate difficult conversations with people at work or in your personal life.
Project Management Series on February 2, March 2 and March 30.
We are pleased to have The Project Coach, an independent consulting practice dedicated to helping businesses apply practical and efficient project practices, join our Quick Takes with a three part series on Project Management.
Cindy Vandersleen and Susan Dodia, managing partners of The Project Coach, have over 40 years of national and international experience and are excited to share strategies, tips and tools with us.
The three sessions will focus on Initiating the Project, Planning the Work, and Working the Plan. Each session may be taken individually, however, when combined will give you an overview of the Project Managment process!
