"Planning With the End in Mind and Responding to Resistance"

Barkley will present "Planning With the End in Mind," a skill-based presentation combining education theory with practical applications and "Responding to Resistance." These presentations will address the fact that as leaders, we at times are facilitating among disagreement. Individual negative comments can derail a group or stop conversations from moving to a solution. Barkley will help identify common sources of resistance and alternative verbal skills to respond while keeping the dialogue going.
