    How Does FEEDING YOUR BRAIN Change Your Life, Memory- and Other-wise? (8:30-10:30 AM near Streets at Southpoint in Durham)

    NOTE: RESCHEDULED from 2/27 (ice day)

    There is an incredible amount of neurological brain research going on, especially in the area of using food to improve memory, change auto-immune disease quality-of-life, lose weight, and other good things. Fay Krapf, Marguerite Lawn, Hope Hills PhD, and Mary Charles Blakebrough are pooling their collective experience with food plans, coconut oil, Tapping, and extensive reading of books, blogs, and attending online Summits with leading experts. Three books they are currently excited about are: (in 2014) Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet by Jimmy Moore with Eric Westman, MD (at Duke), (in 2013) Alzheimer's Disease: What If There Was a Cure? by Mary T. Newport, MD, and (in 2014) The Wahls Protocol: How I Beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine by Terry Wahls, MD.

    Join us for a discussion of new ideas in changing our clarity, productivity, and outlook using current research and experience. Bring along anything you have discovered to add to our brain food "stone soup."

    Social Media Expert Answers Questions #ChangeSIG (8:30-10:30 AM near Streets at Southpoint in Durham)

    Vickie Bevenour's first book Unleashing Your Inner Leader is due out in February and to prepare she went to social media expert Dr. Nannette Stangle-Castor, President & Founder of InnoVector Tech to learn about Twitter. Vickie was so happy with the results, she asked "Net" if she would do a Social Media program for us. Net responded by asking us what we wanted to hear -- which, after polling, is:
    • Twitter -- Why do we care about it? What is the value of Tweeting to us professionally? What do the hashtag and @ indicate?
    • Facebook -- How do we differentiate between personal and business accounts? Is it worth it to have a Facebook business account if we already have our own website?
    • How can you be authentic on social media?
    • What information would I want to share on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter?
    • What’s the value of listening to social media chatter? Is it worth my time?

    Adventures in Facilitation: What's Hot and Happening?
    (8:30-10:30 AM - near Streets at Southpoint Mall, Durham)

    In this session, we will explore and share advances in collaborative team facilitation – the theory and practice.

    • Is it true that brainstorming doesn’t work?
    • How is technology being used to help cross-functional/cross-geographical collaboration?
    • Is it possible for entire organizations to adopt collaboration as an operating system instead of hierarchy?  
    • Is there a maturity model for an organization’s capability to do collaborative problem-solving?     
    Let’s share what we know about the frontiers of working together.

    Debbie Morris has been facilitating all kinds of groups, for all kinds of reasons, since 1985.  She has been studying what’s new in the practice this year. She’ll share her findings as a springboard for discussing what we’re learning from our own experiences as well. 

    For more information, contact SIG leaders, Vickie Bevenour  or Mary Charles Blakebrough (919-493-5424).

    Hope Hills will bring more about the Interpersonal Flexibility Circle (IFC), starting briefly with the basic tenets, she will show us how she uses it in coaching and consultation.  So think of some situations that you would like to work through in the group.  This could be a one to one relationship, or planning for a meeting!

    She will also discuss how she uses the IFC approach in her Lifeline process and show how the IFC approach actually EXPLAINS why some other theories work, as it is interactional, not just an assessment of one person.  Her instrument that looks at interpersonal flexibility for individuals, dyads, 360 processes, and teams, is now available in beta form.  She invites you to take it. (Sign up for it with your name and e-mail address.)

    She will be asking us for feedback about how to set up a successful certification program for the Circle and the Lifeline. Please think about (and maybe list with website addresses) the certification processes that YOU have attended that YOU liked the best. How were they organized? What was the support like after the process?
