The 2024 Staff Training Workshop, Emotional Intelligence: Applications for Wellbeing, is scheduled for five locations across the state in February and March. This interactive workshop will include a presentation, group discussion, and activities focusing on concrete applications of emotional intelligence (EI). Workshop attendees will learn techniques and practices to develop and support EI both in and out of the workplace and gain a greater awareness of leadership derailers. EI: Applications for Wellbeing will be facilitated by Sarah Colantonio, founding partner at Lancaster-based Work Wisdom LLC and a previous workshop facilitator at the 2023 Management Summit and Emerging Leaders Pre-Con. Workshops are scheduled for 10:00 a.m.–2:00 p.m. and are open to all conservation district staff. Registration is $35 per attendee, which includes all workshop materials, coffee and beverage service starting at 9:45 a.m., and a lunch buffet from Noon–12:45 p.m. Visit Building for Tomorrow to register.
