Upcoming Event

Graceful Evolution
Presented by Mary Kausch, Alignment Partnership

Wednesday, January 18, 2017
9 - Noon

Our economic environment has changed the workplace landscape – for businesses and employees. Layoffs, reorganizations and downsizings can really throw off the balance of your cultural ecosystem unless you take action. Employees that are left behind are being asked to do jobs they were not hired to do and are feeling overwhelmed, undervalued, and vulnerable. As every employee’s role is evolving, is your company finding the balance it needs to survive? Are you providing what’s needed for your employees to flourish in spite of adversity and change?

Change does not have to have a negative impact in your workplace. In fact, companies can learn to see change as a positive that encourages innovation and brings greater opportunities. Graceful Evolution helps the workforce understand where they fit amidst the change, helps company leaders communicate the why’s and how’s of the evolving workplace, and offers strategies employees can use to successfully shift into new roles.

Graceful Evolution offers the workforce the necessary tools and positive outlook to adapt, embrace change and see it as a catalyst for improvement, while feeling productive, successful and valued in their new roles.

For the better part of every day, we are communicating to and with others. Whether it’s the speech you deliver in the boardroom, the level of attention you give your spouse when they are talking to you, or the look that you give to the cat, it all means something. This workshop will help participants understand the different methods of communication and how to make the most of each of them.
By the end of this workshop, attendees should be able to:

  • Understand what communication is
  • Identify ways that communication can happen
  • Identify barriers to communication and how to overcome them
  • Develop their non-verbal and Para verbal communication skills
  • Use the STAR method to speak on the spot
  • Listen actively and effectively
  • Ask good questions
  • Use appreciative inquiry as a communication tool
  • Adeptly converse and network with others
  • Identify and mitigate precipitating factors

Event Highlights

The Reason for the Season! 

Well over 170 members and guests attended our annual holiday social and auction on Wednesday, December 7th.   Our association honored Lydia’s House by presenting them a check in the amount of $1,500. 

Lydia’s House works in faith to end domestic violence by being a place of healing and a voice of hope for abused women and their children.  Lydia’s House fulfills this mission by providing safe, affordable transition housing in a confidential location for a maximum of two years.

We are sincerely grateful for your generous donation!

Gift baskets and sporting tickets were in high demand at this event!  26 gift baskets were donated, and each one had their own unique theme.  Members were able to purchase gifts for their family and friends, or, maybe themselves!    

Belfor’s basket brought in the most dollars!  With that said, Belfor’s team will be treated to a $200.00 gift card, compliments of SLAA.  We appreciate everyone’s enthusiasm to raise funds for Lydia’s House. 

Special shout out to Mandi Randell, The Lipton Group,  Kevin Laune, Watchtower Security, Amy Smothers and Kristin Scott, both from CCM, Jon Woodrome, CS Flooring, Kristin Whiteside, BG Staffing, Michelle White, Esq., & Deb Done with Apartment Search.   These elves made it happen!  SLAA appreciates your help!
