Strengths of Difference

Sign up for November 7-8 or February 4-5 at South Puget Sound Community College

Turn your blind spots into opportunities for collaboration, your annoyances into strategic partnerships. Learn how to transform differences that often show up as misunderstandings into complementary strengths.

"There were a lot of concrete, actionable tools that I think will be really helpful."

"This class came highly recommended to me. I was afraid of being disappointed but instead was impressed with all I learned."

Find Your Spark

Learn what motivates and sustains you. Learn how to craft your job and your life to generate the meaning, energy, and effectiveness you desire. Unhook yourself from ways of doing and being that leave you drained and dissatisfied.

"This course helped me really connect with parts of myself that I didn’t always take good care of, or appreciate. The gentle and direct counsel of the trainer brought clarity to what I love about me and how it helps me be the best version of myself. I left the program inspired to see how I can use those strengths to help others and myself."

Creating Psychological Safety Through Conversations

Get more info & sign up for January 21-23 at South Puget Sound Community College

Learn how to create a sense of safety with your team that inspires trust, creativity, information sharing, productivity and well-being.

Inspire Through Creativity

Understand yourself and others as heroes on a creative journey that moves us to transcend our self-imposed limitations and to contribute our unique perspective for the greater good. Creativity is necessary in all kinds of work, especially as more is demanded with less resources. Here, we learn from the failures and victories of Vincent Van Gogh as illustrated in a one-person play and then apply these lessons to our own journeys.

"I've been to a lot of conventions and this is the best session I've ever been to"
