Deep Work: Maximizing Your Impact in a Distracted World
1 p.m.-4 p.m. on Thursday, March 28

In our digital age, most of us struggle with carving out time to do the work that matters most. Shallow pursuits such as social media, the constant pinging of text notifications, and emails can lead us astray from doing the deep work required to enrich our relationships, communities, and even the world. In this session, you will map out a plan for creating a more meaningful and rewarding life based on the book Deep Work by Cal Newport and by utilizing examples from prolific thought leaders and scientists.

Negotiating Basics
1 p.m.-4 p.m. on Friday, March 29

We don’t always agree, especially on really important matters. But we still need to make decisions and figure out how to move forward collectively. Strong negotiation skills will help you facilitate decision-making and make you a better leader. This workshop introduces participants to basic principles of negotiation and provides the opportunity for practice.
