Certificate in Workforce Relationships


Knowing oneself and understanding others is the key to teamwork. Every employer wants staff that works well together. In order to work with a diverse group of individuals, we must first know ourselves and then get to know how others approach work. During this course, we will cover the following topics:

HOW - through the Myers-Briggs inventory, you will learn: HOW you get your energy; HOW you take in information; whether you are a details or the big picture person; and HOW or if you plan your day. This is the HOW of the workforce relationship (Pam Goedde - first Friday a.m.)

WHAT - through the DISC inventory, you will learn in WHAT way your preferences manifest themselves by being either a Dominant, Influencing, Steady or Conscientious person. This is the WHAT of the workforce relationship Tammy Pickering - first Friday p.m.).

WHY - through the Emotional Intelligence inventory, you will learn WHY it is important to understand that your behavior affects your coworkers. This is the WHY of the workforce relationship (Tammy Pickering – second Friday a.m.).

WHO - during this session on Generations in the Workforce, you will understand how those from the four different generations approach work and life: the Traditionalists, the Baby Boomers, the Gen X’ers and the Millennials. This is the WHO of the workforce relationship (Kathleen Lapekas – second Friday p.m.).
