  • Have you ever wondered why you can work effectively with some people, while others just drive you crazy? The reasons can often be traced to natural preferences we have for how we process information, make decisions, plan our approach to work and interact with others. These preferences are assessed by the Myers-Briggs Psychological Type instrument. This one-day workshop will involve you in eye-opening exercises to demonstrate differences in preference, improve your self-understanding and give you tools to work more effectively with others.

  • his program was selected by one of the top seminar companies, 4 decades in business, to be presented in 6 countries in 2015. It is about identifying internal and external barriers women confront in leadership and how to triumph above them. Sheryl Sandberg , the COO of Facebook is ranked one of Fortune's list of the 50 Most Powerful Women in Business and Time's 100 Most Influential People in the World. She suggested in her NY Times best seller, that women need to Lean In. She asks the question why men still hold the vast majority of leadership positions in the US. Women became 50% of the college graduates in the early 1980s.A meager twenty-one of the Fortune 500 CEOs are women. Women hold about 14% of executive officer positions, 17 percent of board seats, and constitute 18 percent of our elected congressional officials. Girls are increasingly outperforming boys in the classroom, earning 57% of undergraduate degrees in the United States and girls graduate with higher GPAs.

  • CLASS TIMES ARE NOT ACTUAL, JUST A PLACE HOLDER FOR YOU OR YOUR DEVICE (MORNING OR AFTERNOON). This is your chance to fix that issue that’s been bugging you, making operable what you thought was hopeless. This workshop will allow you to work one-on-one with a CIO CSS/Desktop IT Specialist via appointment and, if needed, drop off service, to perform preventative maintenance on your device, as well as to trouble-shoot whatever issues you may have with your device (mobile device, laptop, printer, etc.). Services to be provided include, but are not limited to: liberating your device from destructive dust bunnies, adding additional memory (see prerequisite), modifying scan settings and the software updates schedule to work with, not against your schedule, and performing disk clean-up & diagnostics for a cranky computer. All of the above to help you maximize your device to gain work efficiencies. Important: If you would like additional memory added to your computer, you must purchase and bring the memory to the workshop. (Please refer to the CIO’s “Purchasing & Approval: Computer Hardware and Accessories Available On Vendor Contract” Web page for information re: purchasing additional memory.) Schedule Note: “Class times” for registration are not actual appointment times; rather, they are to hold a spot for you/your device for that particular day/general time period (i.e. the morning or afternoon). In addition to registering for the course, please stop by the CIO’s CSS work area at NRU to set up your actual appointment time on the day for which you are registered.
