    I Didn’t Sign On for This: Dealing With Constant Change in the Workplace
    Won’t it stop?! Today’s increasing pace of change can create a personal and work life that mirrors the experience of standing on the baseline at a tennis court and having your opponent fire balls from a tennis cannon at you. This type of change seems constant; before you can assimilate one change another comes along. The phenomenon has become known as “Repetitive Change Syndrome (RCS).” [More details to follow]
    --  Collins has presented, “I Didn’t Sign On for This!” for a wide range of corporations, associations and government agencies. He is president of The Perfect Workday Company and author of The Perfect Workday Book.

    Last month's CALL FOR SPEAKERS for 2018 Change SIG programs resulted in speakers for April, May, June, and Oct. Nov/Dec will be annual Gifts Program 12/7. If you are interested in presenting July 27, Aug 24, Sept 28 let us know. THX!

    Conversational Intelligence® and the Neuroscience of Conversation
    In every aspect of our lives, our ability to connect—to be in relationship—is vital to our well-being. Building quality relationships means establishing a foundation of trust and safety, courageously exploring ideas openly and honestly, genuinely seeking to understand and grow with others. As coaches and consultants we know that the ability to build relationships starts with emotional intelligence, and the only way to put that intelligence to work is through conversation.

    Conversational Intelligence® is a coaching and consulting framework developed by Judith E. Glaser, and based upon a growing body of neuroscience research. We are now able to understand much more about what’s really going on in our brains during conversation. We become aware of the power of words to trigger positive or negative responses, and Judith has provided us with a wealth of conversational skills, tools, and rituals for us and for our clients to become better, more competent communicators.

    At this Change SIG, Carol Brainard will give you a brief introduction to the C-IQ framework and the neuroscience of conversation, introduce you to some of the C-IQ essential skills, and lead you in activities that will enable you to experience the value of C-IQ tools.

    Carol Brainard is an executive coach and OD change consultant who specializes in trust- and relationship-building skills for senior leaders and their teams. She is a Conversational Intelligence® Certified Coach, having been a member of the first cohort of the Core and Enhanced programs in 2016.

    How Going with the FLOW Can Lead to Enhanced Leadership Performance 
    Flow was initially designed to promote the enrichment and happiness of individuals. A large body of research has shown that maintaining a Flow-promoting workplace is a win-win proposition for owners, managers, as well as for the workforce, irrespective of whether the organization is a business, government agency, or non-profit.

    The “Leadership and Flow” research is based on the lifetime work of Prof. Mihaly Csikszentmihályi who has contributed pioneering work to the field of Positive Psychology (a fun trick to remember his name is “Me high? Cheeks send me high!”).

    In recent years, the concept has been extended to organizational performance improvement and leadership development. The study and application of Flow theory has become a comprehensive research program and a global network of academic and corporate partners.

    ​In partnership with Csikszentmihályi, Zsadány​ (Zad) Vecsey​, a fellow economist​ , developed a ​global-award-winning serious management game called FLIGBY.

    The mission of the game FLIGBY is to identify, measure, and help develop leadership skills that, if applied, would help create a Flow-promoting work environment.  

    Susan Hasty will present what she's learned about Flow and how she uses FLOW theory​ and FLIGBY in her work to ​ help leadership teams understand how they can design their infrastructure to enable peak performance. 

    We'll explore ways you can incorporate Flow into your life and FLIGBY into your practice working with organizations.  

    Susan has completed the Flow Fundamentals course offered by The Flow Genome Project and is a certified partner of ALEAS Simulations, Inc., the developers of FLIGBY.

    You can share your tip or trick with the group by telling us about it and/or making copies for everyone. We've found this to be one of our best programs - always full of surprises
    and a real GIFT to all of us!

    Emotional DNA: How Our Families Influence the Way We Show Up at Work

    For years, we have discussed how we inherit our physical DNA and now the world of Systemics and Epigenetics is highlighting how we also inherit and are deeply, yet unconsciously influenced by our emotional DNA. Learn abut the dynamics and hidden patterns (concepts) in Family and Organizational Constellations/Dynamics and see how our families influence the way we show up in our work world (we really do bring our families to work with us). You will ask yourself the following questions, hear some examples, and discuss opportunities for creating change within yourself, your families, and your organizations.
    Questions to consider:

    • What is your sense of how you "fit" in your family and organization/business?
    • Do you know exactly where you belong in your family? Describe how do you feel about your place at work?
    • Do you have a similar role in your family of origin and in your organizati (i.e. caregiver)? Or are they different and how?
