Volunteers help with unloading supplies, setting up the room, making coffee, helping with food preparation, clean up, supporting the speakers, program participants, and staff.
1) “Dynamic Communication,” Michelle Lefebvre, coachwithmichelle.com. When you open your mouth do you seal the deal or kill the deal? Your leadership and your success depend on how well you present yourself, your ideas, and your values. Dynamic communicators are like compelling writers; they speak in a ‘human voice’ and are not afraid to show emotion. When we feel the energy of their message and are impacted by it temporarily or permanently our own energy may shift as a result of the communication – we may be inspired to take action, become deflated and retreat, or we may stay where we are and continue our existing path. Imagine how powerful it would be to fully engage your organization, your team members, your community, your family and take them on a path toward success. This is the power of energetic, dynamic communication. In this session, you will discover ways to shift your energy and engage in any conversation.
2) Project Team Reflections – an opportunity for team and personal feedback with Theresa Anuszewski. Feedback is necessary for effective leadership. Leaders often become isolated and do not receive the feedback they need to make good business decisions and improve their effectiveness. The fallacy “no news is good news” can lure a leader into a false sense of security, when in fact he or she is actually “out of the loop”, and not receiving important information.
This session will review the essentials of how to incorporate feedback processes into any leadership or professional role while enriching your project team experience. The results of the RFL Project Team Survey will be used as an example of “team feedback” and offer each team the opportunity to review their results to date, based on data collected from all members. In addition, each team member will receive “real-time” feedback as recognition from their team members about their specific contributions to the project. For the first time this year, the team coaches are also involved in the feedback process.
You must be an RFL Academy Alumni to volunteer for this session.
