    Over 20 years ago our chapter, looking to serve networking needs of members in the Lancaster/York areas, formed LYN (for Lancaster/York Network).  Since most members who attended were from Lancaster it was renamed Red Rose Learning Community.  For now, it is virtual but still hosted from the Red Rose city with a focus on forming a community of practice where we share our successes and challenges in a caring group of like-minded professionals.

    Each month we use an article from CLO magazine as a topic to consider when we meet and the article this month is about the importance of organizational culture in the time of COVID-19 and the role learning and development plays; although it is not unusual to spend all our time discussing current issues members bring up during our opening welcome.  So be prepared to tell everyone what you are working on; what challenges you are having; what resources you are looking for.  And, be prepared to contribute your knowledge and experience with others.

    You will receive information to the Zoom meeting room upon registration.  Questions or suggestions?  Contact your host rick@teamapproach.com

    Whenever you have more than two people, there’s bound to be conflict. Disagreements are a natural and inevitable part of any work environment. It’s when they go unresolved that tensions rise, energy is wasted and productivity suffers.

    The ability to address contentious situations is a challenging skill for most people. Rather than avoiding conflict, it should be embraced as an opportunity to learn, adapt and respect one another as you work toward an agreement that is mutually acceptable to all team members.

    This interactive program offers insights into your own work style and communication “hot buttons.” You will not only explore situations that challenge you most, you’ll learn to manage your emotions and to express your opinions in a productive way that leads to acceptance and agreement.

    During the program, you will have the opportunity to:

    • Identify personal hot buttons and their role in disagreements.
    • Give others the benefit of the doubt.
    • Moderate opinions open up to potentially great ideas.
    • Apply techniques that empower team members to disagree diplomatically.

    Webinar Description:

    We live in a time of monumental change, and the workplace is not immune. In the wake of the murder of George Floyd and the rallying cry for change, organizations must prioritize their people by centering workplace diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice (DEIJ) commitments. Yet knowing what to do and how to do it often challenging. Participants of this workshop will learn practical research-based strategies that are effective for making their workplaces more inclusive and equitable.

    In this two-part workshop, participants will:

    • Establish a common language related to DEIJ
    • Assess where they are on the journey towards inclusive excellence
    • Define four types of racism
    • Learn practical research-based strategies and tools that are effective for making their workplaces more inclusive and equitable
    • Develop an action plan for implementation
