Event Description

April 1, 2011 – 9:30am – 3:30pm

At one time or another, we all face issues in the workplace:

-   Your co-worker isn’t carrying a fair share of the load.

-   Your staff members are in-fighting, and look to you to resolve their issues.

-   The department that is supposed to support you is giving you attitude.

-   You have ideas to help the company, but you’re hitting a brick wall.

-   You’re considering filing a formal complaint, or are worried that one against you or the company may be brewing.

-   You think a policy is outdated, a decision is unfair to you, or a strategy is harmful to the team, but aren’t sure how to bring it up.

Handling workplace issues in an effective manner saves you & the company time, money, reputation and relationships. Employees give discretionary effort as team players when ‘engaged.’ Learn these techniques through exercises, examples, and practical how-to guidelines:

  • The three basic ways to handle issues, and guidelines for when to use which
  • How to address a conflict with a colleague without making it worse
  • Coaching others in using problem-solving skills to resolve their own issues
  • ‘Disagreeing up’ – giving input, challenging policies & decisions
  • The keys to turning issues into resolutions, and an adversarial situation into a partnership

 

Time & Place: 9:30 – 3:30 on Friday, April 1, at Community Mediation Inc, 32 Elm Street, New Haven.

Jane Zirlis, the facilitator, is a management consultant specializing in organizational effectiveness & strategic initiatives, and is a mediator for the EEOC.   She was a key member of the team which implemented Coca-Cola’s landmark conflict management policy, and integrates those best practice concepts into her leadership workshops and coaching.  In her early career, Jane founded a boutique organizational consulting firm on Wall Street, and has been an arbitrator in the financial services for over 15 years.  Her recent projects include helping organizations use conflict management techniques as an enterprise risk management tool, as well as a profitability and Employee Engagement strategy.  Jane has a BA in Human Behavior from Harvard University and an MBA from NYU in Finance, where her thesis project was International Negotiations.

Foreclosure Risk is Growing, With No Relief in Sight

Homeowners and small landlords are under mounting pressure, as lost income related to COVID-19 leaves them with month after month of unpaid debt and limited ability to catch up. The loss of wealth could impact the next generation and beyond, especially in communities of color, warns LISC’s Denise Scott. “Just as COVID-19 is having a disproportionate impact on the health of Black and Brown families, so too is it exacerbating our racial wealth gap, which already saps so much from our national potential.”

Unlocking Corporate Treasuries for Racial Equity: A Podcast with LISC's George Ashton

George Ashton III, who oversees LISC's Strategic Investments department, joined a recent episode of the podcast Money + Meaning to discuss LISC's Black Economic Development Fund. The conversation delved into the growth of CDFIs and their role in economic development and how more corporations can direct their capital towards systems change that promotes racial equity.

How CDFIs and the UN Can Align the Measure of their Common Goals

By adopting a set of universal benchmarks established by the United Nations—the UN Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs—Community Development Financial Institutions can streamline the way they measure and demonstrate the investments they've been making for decades to help create equity and wellbeing for people and places in the United States. A blog by LISC's Anna Smukowski and the OFN's Andrea Longton explains how and why.
