- About SVC
The Skagit Valley College customized training program and the Economic Development Alliance of Skagit County have partnered to offer monthly workshops to support workforce development education. It is an understood fact that productivity is increased through targeted quality training, but not everyone has the time or money to develop and deliver the training needed. The workforce development workshops are packed into two "power" hours. Trainings will provide employers and employees an efficient and effective professional development educational experience at very little cost. There will be a broad range of topics offered. Please see below for workshop descriptions and information.
Workshop: Being An Effective Leader
Being An Effective Leader Part I - Wednesday, February 1, 2017, 12:00 - 2:00
What does it take to get a group of people to work together in a positive, productive, cohesive manner? And, why does that not happen most of the time?
Learn how to get your team to agree on how to interact with each other, create a positive work environment, and even be self-directed. We will stress emotional intelligence, interpersonal skills, conflict management, and how to communicate in crisis mode.
Being An Effective Leader Part II - Wednesday, March 1, 2017, 12:00 - 2:00
Okay, we created a structure for our groups and individuals to work together well—what do we do when everything we put together falls apart? As an extension of Part I, we’ll make sure everybody is on the same page, knows how to manage conflict, and have the skills to coach each other and reinforce our agreements hrough difficult times.
