Communities of Practice are communities within our larger chapter
organization that have a shared interest in advancing a specific area of
knowledge, learning or social connection geographically.
Meaningful interpersonal connections in the workplace can be tremendously difficult to make - even when we have the best of intentions. What does it mean to show true empathy for another human, how do we do it, and what's the benefit? These are just a few of the topics we will explore in this RoundTable session.
Join your fellow colleagues as we share our thoughts on building empathy with others, including colleagues and clients in the workplace. Our discussion will be inspired by a thought provoking coaching tip by Tom Henschel: Building Empathy.
The RoundTable is an exciting approach that stimulates incredible conversation and insight around the topics and trends impacting our discipline.
We will read the selected piece aloud together for about 15 minutes. Then for the next 45 minutes, we offer everyone in attendance equal time to share their thoughts and experiences on or around the topic. Come explore with us!
The GEMS RoundTable format is provided by Sue Gabriele, President and Owner, Gabriele Educational Materials and Systems.
Please RSVP by:
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.”

Hold On to Employees by Letting Them Go
To retain top talent, companies might want to make it easier for people to go - to another role or department that is. In fact, many leaders believe they can do a better job of hanging on to workers by focusing on their development rather than their "retention" in the traditional sense.
Join your fellow colleagues as we explore advanced strategies for holding on to employees. Our discussion will be inspired by an article from Ryan Holmes published in a recent issue of Fast Company magazine.
What's in Your Backpack
In times of chaos and challenge we often forget successes and accomplishments and focus on what we need to improve. Yet it is the balance of utilizing strengths and recognizing areas of development that help us to fully engage. Let’s discover what’s in your backpack – strengths, interests, passions – along with what has sunk to the bottom and needs dusting off. Or what is weighing you down and preventing you from taking steps forward. Join us for this interactive session to ensure you are utilizing all you want to share and leverage to better engage with your organization, colleagues and clients to bring your greatest potential to work and life.

Enhancing Global Virtual Teams Through Training
Much of today's work is accomplished in global virtual teams, but how effectively is training preparing these teams to succeed? The stakes are high for these teams to deliver, but too often, they are not fully effective due to complexity, lack of team cohesion, competing priorities, and other factors. Training can play an important role in driving performance to a higher level.
Join your fellow colleagues as we explore and discuss a proposed model for virtual team success. Our discussion will be inspired by an article from Marjorie Derven published in a recent issue of Training magazine.
