Talking With Each Other: The Key to Organizational Effectiveness
with Michael Baroff
Whether you are facilitating a group or coaching an individual, an ongoing challenge is to bring awareness to "what is happening" in the moment‑—what is said, what is unsaid, and what needs to be said. In this session, we will explore and reflect on how to increase awareness and candor to support achieving effective outcomes.
Michael Baroff has over 30 years experience consulting with a wide range of business, government and nonprofit organizations. He is the author of The Inner Work of Work series and served as the 1992 ATD (ASTD)-LA Chapter President. His current client work focuses on small group facilitation and HR-related performance improvement coaching. He also facilitates a public workshop on Conscious Aging.
Location: Wimer Associates, 201 Wilshire Blvd. Santa Monica, CA 90401. Held in the "A" level conference room downstairs.
Parking is in the 2nd St Parking Structure between Wilshire and Arizona.

Training's Role In Preventing Sexual Harassment
The rising tide of allegations and the #MeToo campaign point to the need for better workplace discussion and a culture where victims feel they can come forward. What is the role of training in preventing sexual harassment? What impact do current organizational training efforts have in preventing sexual harassment in the workplace? What can organizations do differently to increase the effectiveness of their efforts?
Join your fellow colleagues as we explore and discuss this hot topic. Our discussion will be inspired by a recent article from Chief Learning Officer Magazine.

The word “trust” sparks something in each of us – principles, concepts, lessons and so much more. Trust defines our choices and our actions. Join us as we apply the Text Study RoundTable practice to the thought-provoking topic of “Trust in the Workplace.”

Lynnette Ward is a Career Development Consultant, specializing in management and career development, who believes in the power to choose our work.
