Playing Nice in the Sandbox Just One Month Away

On Tuesday, March 15 at 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m., the workshop, Playing Nice in the Sandbox, will be presented in the Community Room at the Pastoral Institute.

Getting along and getting things done is what the workplace is all about. Increasingly, the successful lead not by virtue of power, but by excelling in the art of relationships. This workshop deals not only with relationships but communication, criticism and solving the problem behind the problem that causes the workplace to be less productive.

Playing Nice in the Sandbox is a research-based approach to teaching healthy and effective communication skills in the workplace.

This workshop will give coworkers the skills needed to:
• Work more efficiently and successfully as a team.

• Resolve conflict without damaging relationships.

• Preserve and enhance a friendly work environment.

The net-net result of strong relationships in a working environment is a more stable, more productive and more satisfied workforce.

What the research says:
• Employees who work in an environment with predominantly healthy relationships are happier and therefore more productive and less likely to leave; both of these factors have a direct positive impact on a company’s bottom line.

• In what has become known as the “spillover effect,” healthy relationships at work facilitate healthy relationships at home; negative relationships at work facilitate negativerelationships at home. Skills learned have a positive impact both at work and at home which, again, increases company health.

• Healthy relationship and good conflict resolution skills can be learned. That is what this workshop is all about.
