March 19, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm UTC+3

Wondering what a roller coaster, raccoon, vacuum cleaner and elephant have to do with building community engagement online?  Keep reading.    Lectures that drone on and on.  Overwhelming unread notifications of online events.  Workshops that are drier than the Sahara desert and more boring than watching paint dry. We’ve all been there.     Online meetings, courses, workshops, check-ins are never ending. Some research shows we are spending up to 16 hours a day on digital media!  Globally, we doubled our…

Learning and Development Roundtable: From overwhelmed to organized: Simple tech tools for ease and efficiency April 2021

April 15, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm UTC+3

Technology can be a huge time suck. Who hasn’t disappeared down the rabbit hole of YouTube videos, Pinterest boards, and/or TikTok videos only to emerge sleepy eyed and aghast at the hours that have mysteriously evaporated.   Technology can be incredibly, extraordinarily, hair-raisingly frustrating - enough to make a colourful array of curse words fly out of your mouth all the while you’re restraining yourself from throwing your computer out the window.    You’re not alone.  Eighty percent of people…

  Are you a victim of what I call the Covid creativity cloud?  Here are some of the symptoms.  See if you recognize any in yourself:   An issue that would normally not cause you stress, is making you bang your head against the wall, and making any progress feel blocked.

Learning and Development Roundtable: Top tips for online facilitating and public speaking

August 19, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm UTC+3

Quick!  Can you recall a recent online meeting or workshop that was interesting, engaging, and had a powerful effect?  Nope?  I thought so.   Online meetings and workshops have two things in common - the need to speak publicly and the need to facilitate or teach.  And both of those skills can be in woefully short supply.   Add to that, the fear of public speaking is the most common phobia ahead of even death and spiders!  Source: The national…

Learning and Development Roundtable: Eight skills for communicating with confidence and clarity and without consternation

September 24, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm UTC+3

They say hard skills (a.k.a. technical skills) get you hired but lack of so-called soft skills, like communication, can get you fired.  Add to that our weariness and overwhelm with the ongoing global pandemic and raging world wide conflicts, it’s enough to dampen the motivation of even the hardiest souls.   Being able to communicate with confidence and clarity is critical yet we often leave improving our communication skills as a distant priority.  And to make matters worse our communication…

Learning and Development Roundtable: Getting the knack of negotiation with six skills for nuanced negotiating

October 21, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm UTC+3

Let’s talk conflict and money. Have you ever paused to think about the cost of conflict in the workplace, both to you and your organization?  What if I told you it was £28.5 billion in the UK alone. This represents an “average of just over £1,000 for every employee in the UK each year, and just under £3,000 annually for each individual involved in conflict.” (Pollack Peacebuilding Systems, 2021).   “Employees in United States companies spend approximately 2.8 hours each…

Tech tools.  Do you cringe in fear, overwhelm and/or exhaustion from trying to keep up, when you hear the words tech tools?     You’re not alone.   It’s no surprise we’re overwhelmed.   “Constant frustration with bad tech experiences affects how staffers handle their daily workloads, especially younger workers. Gen Z and Millennial test subjects saw a whopping 30% drop in their productivity as a result” (Daily Sabah). Folks in the US spend 4.1 hours per day checking work email…

January 21 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm UTC+3

Information is flowing faster than ever.  We are walking and talking faster than a decade ago. We’re inundated with platforms, blogs, websites, tweets, LinkedIn posts, Youtube videos, online courses etc etc.  But who has time for learning?     The better question is ‘who doesn’t have time for that all-important, strategic, let’s-get-to-the-bottom-of-pressing-social-problems learning’?  Learning is key to your professional and personal success and carving out time for a brief workshop (that’d be this one) to help you craft a customized learning…
