We are excited to pilot pre-Institute workshops for the 2019 Annual Institute. Our 80th year program theme continues as we are “Learning from our past. Leading into your future.” Join us for one of two free pre-conference workshops that will prepare you for your future.

Workshops will be help on Sunday, April 28 and begin promptly at 1pm. You must pre-register by 5pm April 26, and space is limited to 20 participants in each workshop. Please arrive early to get your seat.

Workshop Descriptions

Cultivating Motivation and Engagement
Workshop Description:

Individuals are driven to work by a variety of internal and external factors that can change over time. For this reason, leaders must openly communicate with the members of their team to find out more about their individual needs. In this workshop, we examine the behaviors and strategies that most reliably result in motivated and engaged employees.
Workshop Lessons:
• Inspiring Motivation
• Fostering Employee Engagement

TOC is offering these dynamic, in-depth learning opportunities as a pilot program to gauge your need for this kind of professional programing. These workshops provide a deeper dive into a chosen topic, allowing for engagement with the instructor and other participants. This is a chance to really expand your understanding of a topic that you and your peers said was important to your professional development. If successful, our pilot program could improve the structure of TOC’s Professional Development Program. We are exploring the demand for and the impact of this style of learning event. Your participation in this pilot workshop not only benefits you, but also helps us determine the best way to “Learn from our past and lead into your future.”
