    Stop & Shift; A Mental Exercise to Reset Your Mindset |  Ambassador Ballroom Salon 1
    We all know that life is full of ups and downs. And not only is it hard to stay positive when the pressures of work and life are so demanding, it’s easy to get caught up in negative thoughts and emotions that swirl around in our minds. This can lead to poor decision-making and a general feeling of being out of control. What if you could train your brain to respond thoughtfully with care? Spoiler alert: you can. Stress and setbacks make it tough to keep your head in the game. When the pressure is on, you need a go-to tool that can help you rise to all of life’s challenges. Stop & Shift is that tool. This mental training technique provides a new map for your mind so that you can make decisions from a place of strength instead of stress. Attendees will learn how to:

    • Build resilience and use hardships as launching pads for growth.
    • Create space from negative thoughts and emotions so they can approach challenges with confidence and make productive decisions from a place of composure and clarity.
    • Cultivate joy, inner peace, grit, and other mindful behaviors to prevent burnout.

    Mastering the Art of Negotiation | Ambassador Ballroom Salon 3

    If you think negotiating skills are only for sales people, think again! Every single relationship in your life entails some negotiation. True, it’s often linked to sales, but that limited perspective ignores the fact that negotiation pervades all aspects of your professional life. Trying to increase productivity across your department or organization? Leading a team of co-workers to complete a complicated project? Attempting to get the best deal from a vendor? Pitching a new product to an internal or external client? In all of these situations, you’ll have to negotiate to succeed. That said, a successful negotiation isn’t about getting what you want at all costs. Rather, it’s about engaging in a give-and-take with someone whose goals and agenda differ from yours, striving to reach a compromise that’s satisfactory to everyone involved.
    This session takes the mystery (or misery depending on your perspective!) out of a negotiation by providing a step-by-step process for analyzing what motivates each person involved and how you can bring all parties together to achieve success.

    Influencing Without Authority | Ambassador Ballroom Salon 3
    Getting stuff done in the office can be challenging, even under the best of circumstances. Everyone has their own priorities and deadlines. And, to be successful, your projects may require assistance from employees who don’t work for you. Being able to influence people through communication, engagement, persuasion, and relationship-building is essential for the rising leader, particularly when leading organization-wide initiatives. In this highly interactive workshop, we’ll review strategies to help you ‘influence without authority’ for your projects and your career.

    Wouldn’t it be amazing if we could go to a website that had perfect people on it that we could work with and live with? The only problem with that website would be the fact that we wouldn’t be on it. We all have something that someone else is tolerating.
