Workshop Description: 

In this one day program for office professionals, you'll learn how to create boundaries and systems for dealing with difficult situations-no matter what comes your way.  We'll explore strategies for de-escalating stressful interactions with parents, staff, and students, and for managing the challenging emotions that are an inherent part of working in the main office.  You'll discover how to create systems for dealing with interrruptions and handling everything that's clamoring for your attention, so you can get your key work done without feeling overwhelmed. 

A few key items from the AM Agenda: 

  • De-Escalating Stressful Situations
  • How to create and uphold boundaries for a safe, productive, professional office environment
  • Specific phrases and nonverbal responses you can use to calm people down and help them get their problem resolved
  • The neuroscience behind emotional regulation, and what happens in the brain and body when people become dysregulated
  • How to respond when people are dysregulated or inappropriate, without taking it personally or triggering your fight-or-flight response 

A few key items from the PM Agenda: 

  • Dealing with Interruptions
  • How to finish what you're working on, even when the phone is ringing off the hook (and no one else is picking up)
  • Streamlining intra-office communication so everyone interrupts each other less and gets more done
  • Self-service systems for students and staff-how to route routine requests to lists you can deal with when you're ready, instead of getting interrupted every time
  • Working with Administrators and staff
  • Systems for effective workflow and communication with Administrators
